Hello Linah,
Of course, people will want to trade in high-ranking platforms with excellent market prices. Forex has excellent brokerages and trading platforms, and therefore, gives you good reasons to deal with it. Trading forex is very profitable. You can make a living out of Forex trading. That one I can almost assure you. It's risky and yet profitable.
One of these reasons is that Forex is a 24-hour market, this is a good advantage because you can choose what time you want to trade be it morning, night, just whatever time suits you because this market never sleeps.
This market is also very liquid, so when the market conditions standard, you can immediately buy or sell since there will be someone ready to trade with you.
Also, the transaction costs in forex trading are low; this is a good reason why you should trade with Forex.

Hi Linah,

Investors are busy people during the day and will enjoy trading at ease. Being online does not limit one at a particular location to trade, therefore one to merge it with another form of business or even job.

Great question,Linah,

Investors are leaving other markets for Forex. But what makes the industry so attractive? First off, the market is accessible thanks to its low capital requirements and transaction costs. Since they benefit from spreads, most providers don’t impose brokerage, government, exchange, or clearing charges.
The industry’s high leverage also facilitates huge contract values from small deposits. Taking the case of a 50:1 leverage, an investor can purchase or sell $2,500 in currencies with a $50 deposit. Moreover, the volatile market lets you offload assets at a profit. The fact that it runs day and night also makes it suitable for part-time traders.
Not forgetting the high liquidity. With its numerous participants, it’s impossible for single players to determine market values for long periods. The good news is most brokers are controlled by several bodies making Forex less prone to scams. Additionally, newbies can polish their abilities with a demo account.
