Trading basics
  • What is a spread?

    A spread is the difference between buy and sell prices. At FXM capital.com we offer both fixed spreads and variable spreads.

    Spread is measured in pips.

    For example if the buy price for EUR/USD is 1.045 and sell price 1.043, it means that the EUR/USD spread is 2 pips.

  • When is the market open?

    Forex trading begins each day in Sydney and moves around the globe as the business day begins in each financial center, first to Tokyo, then London, and New York.

    Unlike any other financial market, investors can respond to currency fluctuations caused by economic, social, and political events at the time they occur – day or night.

    Forex market opens on Sunday 5pm EST (10:00pm GMT) and closes on Friday 5pm EST (10:00pm GMT).

  • What do long and short positions mean?

    If you are buying currency, you are opening a ‘long’ position, if selling – ‘short’.

    For example, if you buy 1 lot of EUR/USD, you open a long position for 100,000 of EUR against USD.

    And if you sell 10 lots of USD/CAD, you open a short position for 1 million USD versus CAD.

  • What trading strategy can I use?

    Currency traders make decisions using both technical factors and economic fundamentals. Technical traders use charts, trend lines, support and resistance levels, and numerous patterns and mathematical analyses to identify trading opportunities, whereas fundamentalists predict price movements by interpreting a wide variety of economic information including news, government-issued indicators and reports, and even rumors.

    The most dramatic price movements, however, occur when unexpected events happen. The event can range from a Central Bank raising domestic interest rates to the outcome of a political election or even an act of war. Nonetheless, more often it is the expectation of an event that drives the market rather than the event itself.
