What Is Foreign Exchange (Forex)?
Foreign Exchange (forex or FX) is the trading of one currency for another. For example, one can swap the U.S. dollar for the INR.
A foreign exchange rate is the price of the domestic currency stated in terms of another currency. In other words, a foreign exchange rate compares one currency with another to show their relative values. Since standardized currencies around the world float in value with demand, supply, and consumer confidence, their values change relative to each over time. For instance, one US dollar in 2011 was worth about .68 Euros. In 2014, one US dollar is worth .75 Euros. This means the dollar has increased in value over this three-year span, but the Euro is still 25% more valuable
The forex market is the largest, most liquid market in the world, with trillions of dollars changing hands every day.1 There is no centralized location, rather the forex market is an electronic network of banks, brokers, institutions, and individual traders (mostly trading through brokers or banks).
