So the results and profits of your trading are greatly affected by the expectations as well.

So what is forex exactly? Trading on foreign exchange is the process of selling one foreign currency and exchanging it for another at the same time, and each transaction passes through intermediaries known as the broker or trader, and currencies are traded in pairs, for example the Euro against the US Dollar (EUR/USD), the US Dollar against the Japanese Yen (USD/JPY), or the US Dollar against the Canadian Dollar (USD/CAD) and so on.

Forex trading can be a bit confusing, as you are not buying tangible things. Therefore, buying a currency is like buying a part of a country, as the exchange rate of a particular currency against other currencies is a reflection of the state of the economy in that country compared to the economies of other countries.
