There are a number of things that makes forex trading quite outstanding from other financial market instruments. Top among the list is that the forex market provides the highest liquidity in the financial market, to the tune of over $3.5 Trillion daily.What that stands to mean is that the forex market is able to absorb all manners of volumes of trade.
Unlike other financial instruments, forex can be traded 24 hours every day, 5 days a week and that gives forex traders the unprecedented privilege of trading only at their convenience and by large the possibility of combining forex trade with their regular jobs.
With other financial instruments, a trader would require to have tons of money to be able to participate in those markets and that is besides having to run overheads that eats quite deep into profits made and that is if any was actually made. However with forex trade, a trader is more or less running his/her business at little or no cost thus maximizing any profit made.
