Forex refers to the foreign exchange market, and the buying and selling of currencies. Every day an average of more than US$5.3 trillion in transactions takes place in the forex market. Forex traders attempt to predict the direction of an exchange rate, just like stock traders try to predict the direction of a company stock price. Forex traders buy a currency pair when they think the exchange rate will increase, and sell a currency pair when they think the exchange rate will decrease.
