The actual trading in the Forex market takes place in currency pairs. You either sell on currency for another or buy a currency with another. Each pair is made up of a base and a quote currency. In the EUR/USD pair, the Euro is the base and the US dollar is the quote. Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for everyone. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. Remember, you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment, which means that you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. If you have any doubts, it is advisable to seek advice from an independent financial advisor.
Transactions in foreign currencies are not centralized on an exchange, unlike say the NYSE, and thus take place all over the world via telecommunications. Trade is open 24 hours a day from Sunday afternoon until Friday afternoon (00:00 GMT on Monday to 10:00 pm GMT on Friday). In almost every time zone around the world, there are dealers who will quote all major currencies. After deciding what currency the investor would like to purchase, he or she does so via one of these dealers (some of which can be found online). It is quite common practice for investors to speculate on currency prices by getting a credit line (which are available to those with capital as small as $500), and vastly increase their potential gains and losses. This is called marginal trading.
For six months of working with InstaForex I can say that this broker has never failed me. First of all I would like to mention especially such competitive advantage of the company as bonus programs. I do not know other brokers that provide such big bonuses. InstaForex is particularly known for its reliable staff: employees are always ready to explain clearly and patiently all the details of each service and give a good advice. I like that I can see my statistics concerning the work I have done. I would like to thank everyone who develops the company and makes traders' life easier.
