INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Mine And Yours'

The forex or foreign exchange market is a highly liquid market where investors such as individuals, financial institutions, corporations, central banks and hedge funds trade currencies, usually through the Internet. This market relies heavily on leverage because currency pairs usually experience very small changes in value on a day-to-day basis. When a forex investor opens a trade, they are buying one currency and selling another. To close the trade, they do the opposite transaction.
