Forex Trading

Forex, often called FX, is short for foreign exchange market - buying one currency against selling another. FX trading was available only for large financial institutions, central banks, corporations, the very wealthy and hedge funds until very recently. Now with the advent of the internet, all you need is a computer, or smart device and an internet connection to trade currencies.

Why Trade Currencies?

Forex is known to be the most common form of online trading and at HighFxMarkets we offer you 60+ of your favourite currency pairs tradable on your customizable MT5 platform.

Trading on FX means that you are buying the difference or spread between the two currencies.

Generally, the daily volatility for most currencies is usually small and they move less than a percentage point during a trading day making the FX market one of the least volatile markets in the world.

We at HighFxMarkets provide “fast reliable trading” or in other words, we ensure that all transactions are fully automated meaning that your trades are executed efficiently and settled instantly. We call this

100% automated with no re-quotes or rejections unless upper and lower bounds are set to protect against price volatility.

No dealing desk or algorithmic software intervention to push trades to the broker’s favour.
