The Foreign exchange market or the Forex market is the financial market where the currencies are traded. The present day Forex markets were started to form during 1970s. This is the time when most of the countries switched from the previous exchange rate system to the floating exchange rate system. The Forex market is spread all over the world and financial centers of different countries function as the anchors of Forex trading that involves different categories of buyers and sellers. The Forex market is open round the clock throughout the world except the weekend when the Forex markets remain closed. The global Forex market helps the international trade and commerce as well as allows investors and businesses to convert one currency to the other.
