The Forex market


Forex, or foreign exchange, is a marketplace for trading currencies. It is also the largest financial market in the world, where trillions of dollars are traded every day. Forex markets do not rely on one central institution. Instead, Forex is traded by a network of banks across four major Forex trading centers in different time zones – New York, Sydney, Tokyo, and London. This means you can trade Forex round the clock without any delays or waiting time.

Using Leverage To Amplify

With SatoshiFX, we give you up to 1:1000 leverage on selected products. This means that for every dollar you put in, we multiply that by a thousand to make your trade more powerful. Another way of stating the same thing is to say that your margin requirement for this trade is 0.1% i.e. 0.1% of the trade must be your own money. In MetaTrader 4, one lot is 100,000 units of currency. So to buy 1 lot, you’d need to invest 100 EUR/USD which we will amplify. Once you’ve bought 100,000 EUR/USD, there will be two outcomes, let’s take a look.

A Trading Example

So let’s say that you’ve looked at market reports, or read the financial headlines, and you’ve decided that the US dollar is going to move against the Euro. In particular, you think that the US dollar will fall against the Euro, and the Euro will grow stronger. So you pick your EUR/USD pair. The first currency in the pair is your base currency, i.e. the currency you decide to buy and sell in. For example: “EUR/USD = 1.25” means that one EUR is exchanged for 1.25 USD.

Making a profit

Initial EUR/USD price = 1.3552

The dollar falls, which means the EUR/USD ratio changes to 1.3580 - you get more dollars to every Euro.

The difference is 1.3580 – 1.3552 = .0028(100) = 28 ticks (A tick is the smallest possible price movement in any market). In this market, a tick equivalent to 1/10,000 of a unit.

This would be your profit on the trade:

= 100,000 units x 28/10,000

= 100,000 x 0.0028

= USD 280
Making a Loss

Initial EUR/USD price = 1.3552

The dollar rises, which means the EUR/USD ratio changes to 1.3515, i.e. you get fewer dollars to every Euro.

The difference is 1.3552 – 1.3515 = .0037(100) = 37 ticks. In this market, a tick is equivalent to 1/10,000 of a unit.

This would be your loss on the trade:

= 100,000 units x 37/10,000

= 100,000 x 0.0037

= USD 370
