Forex trading, or FX trading, allows you to simultaneously buy or sell one currency against another across a decentralized market. When trading in foreign currency pairs, traders speculate on whether the value of one currency will rise or fall against another currency, and decide to buy (go long) or sell (go short) accordingly.
