Currencies

Currencies form the foundation of the Foreign Exchange market. Traditionally, forex trading in this market was dominated by large financial institutions, corporations, central banks, hedge funds, and high-net-worth individuals. However, with the advent of the internet era, average investors can now easily buy and sell currencies through online brokerage accounts with just a few clicks. This has opened up opportunities for wider participation in forex trading.

A currency future is a contractual agreement to exchange one currency for another at a predetermined date in the future, at a fixed price known as the exchange rate, which is determined at the time of purchase. This enables investors to plan ahead and mitigate risks associated with currency fluctuations.

Investors can take advantage of the interest rate differentials between currencies. They may sell a currency with a relatively lower interest rate and use the proceeds to purchase a different currency that offers a higher interest rate. This strategy allows investors to potentially benefit from earning interest differentials while participating in the currency market.
