What’s Online Trading?
Online trading is basically the act of selling and buying financial products through an online trading platform. Internet based brokers normally provide these platforms and are available to each and every person who wishes to try to create money from the market.
Most brokers, like iFOREX, provide a variety of financial products including Forex, Commodities, Indices and Shares. While trading Shares like Google or buying and selling Commodities like Gold or Silver may be familiar, Forex trading has gained extreme popularity over the last few years due to some of its own major features.
To make this simple, imagine you’re getting ready for a trip to New York and you exchange 500 Euros into Dollars. A week later, your trip is cancelled and you decide to change your Dollars back into Euros.
This is referred to as a profitable foreign exchange trade. You initially purchased Dollars at a certain rate of exchange and during the week that followed, the value of the Dollar went up against the value of the Euro.
Without meaning to do so, you managed to make a small profit as you sold them back at a higher rate and bought your Dollars at a low rate – the aim of any successful trade.
Nowadays, there is no need to go to a bank or post office, or even depart from your house for that matter – you can simply trade online using mobile phone or your home computer.
As mentioned above, from the palm of your hand you can trade , Forex which includes currencies such as the Dollar or Euro, a number of Commodities including Oil or Gold and even major market indices.
You don’t need to be a professional to trade online.
