High liquidity and High volume

The daily volume in the Forex market is estimated at 3 trillion dollars! This inconceivable figure is slowly on the rise.

This astonishing number (3,000 billion) is divided between deals intended for payments related to import and export, and investment deals.

These investment deals (or speculation) are 95% of the flow in the market. This means that traders like yourself make the majority of the Forex market’s high volume – it’s not controlled by big companies or central banks.

Remember that when you start a trading session, or open a position, you must also close it. So, this means that an average $100,000 position instantly means that it will be closed with a deal with the same magnitude.

And as usual, the agency enjoys the few pips of every spread in every deal.

Yohay Elam: Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I've accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I've worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
