What is traded in Forex?

It would be fair enough to mention “money” as the ultimate answer here. Forex trading is a bit complex because there isn’t any physical purchase involved. Just imagine as if you are in a different country and buying currencies.

The economy of that state is very important concerning the depiction of the price of the currency at the time when it is being bought or sold.

Forex trading is a simple thing to understand. If for example, you are buying a Japanese Yen then this means that you are buying a share in the Japanese economy.

The basic idea is that a bet is being placed by you in accordance with your assumption that the particular economy is doing quite well and will improve with time passing by.

A simple rule that can be followed here is that the currencies of different countries are exchanged here and they reflect upon each other’s economies.
