What to know when trading Forex online

Trade Currency and Price Currency
When an investor trades in the Forex market, they always trade a combination of two currencies (a cross or currency pair) in which one currency is bought (long) and the other is sold (short). This means the investor is speculating on the prospect of one of the currencies appreciating in value in relation to the other.

Forex Margin Trading
Margin trading allows investors to buy and sell assets that have a greater value than the capital in their account. Forex trading is typically executed on margin accounts, and the industry practice is to trade on relatively small margin amounts since currency exchange rate fluctuations tend to be less than one or two percent on any given day.

Margin trading does involve a high amount of risk. Since a position is being held that exceeds the actual value of the account, a trader could incur substantial losses if the market moves against his position. Thus, margin trading requires close monitoring of margin utilisation, i.e. the amount of collateral being used to hold margined positions.

If margin utilisation exceeds collateral available for margin trading, positions must be closed, reduced, or additional funds must be posted to cover the position.
