Foreign Exchange Market or Forex is currency trading market and is similar to stock market. The currency pairs are on a trade like shares, only the difference is Forex is much simpler and a lot more active. It is said that because it’s more active, it is a lot more risky. However, in my opinion it doesn’t matter how fast market moves, the risk involved is highly subject to the trader himself. When further comparing stock market and Forex, we must note that sometimes the shares can plummet overnight like none currency pair would ever.
