Currency Trading in foreign exchange is the simultaneous buying of one currency and selling of another currency. Daily volume in the  currency market exceeds $1.5 trillion  per  day, making it the largest and most liquid market in the world. Unlike  other  financial markets, the Forex market has no physical location or central   exchange. It is an over-the-counter market where buyers and sellers including   banks, corporations, and private investors conduct business. Foreign exchange   trading takes place in financial trading centers all over the world, including   New York, London, and Tokyo creating one cohesive, international market. The   huge number and diversity of players involved make it difficult for even   governments to control the direction of the market. The unmatched liquidity and   around-the-clock global activity make foreign exchange the ideal market for  active traders.
