Why trade Forex instead of shares?
There’s Never a Flat Market
Good volatility in the popular AUD/USD currency pair means more profit potential than simply trading on the stock exchange. In recent times, stock exchange results have been about as flat as you can get –in some cases even depreciating more than 5% year on year. Volatility in the Forex market means that you always have a chance for good breakout trades.
The AUD/USD had some big moves in 2013. This volatility created many opportunities for Forex traders.
There’s Always a Buyer or a Seller
The sheer size and liquidity of the Forex market means that someone’s always buying what you’re selling, and vice versa. Whether it’s tea time or high noon, traders around the world never stop trading foreign currencies. This means you’ll never be in a position where you can’t exit a trade and close the position.
There’s Leverage When You Need It
Forex providers such as ForexCT have the ability to offer high leverage options, which lets traders get maximum exposure for a relatively small margin deposit. ForexCT offers leverage as high as 400:1. Compare that to trading in the share market, where limited leverage options force traders to pay nothing less than the full value of the shares.
There’s No De-listings or Takeovers
Forex pairs are more secure in the sense that they are not subject to de-listings or takeovers. Unlike the share market, if a company were de-listed from the exchange, you would be unable to exit that trade for an indefinite period of time. Similarly, in the case of a takeover, you risk being caught on the wrong side of a trade.
