Forex markets can be very volatile, particularly emerging market currencies, but even the major pairs can move dramatically on a central bank policy change, a political event, or on significant economic news. Saxo Bank’s long history in the foreign exchange space gives us the ability to offer our clients a broad range of liquidity and competitive levels of leverage, as well as access to exotic currency pairs such as EURTRY (euro/Turkish lira), USDSGD (dollar/Singaporean dollar), USDZAR (dollar/South African rand) and many more.
Saxo Bank’s strategy team provide expert analysis of forex trends with a focus on macro fundamentals, technical analysis, geopolitical factors, and central bank activity. The SaxoTraderGO platform offers traders and investors access to over 100 forex pairs while our automated Trade Signals technology continually scans for potential forex trade opportunities based on chart patterns and success probability.
Forex, or foreign exchange, is the market space in which investors trade currencies. Some of the most widely-traded pairs include EURUSD (euro/dollar), GBPUSD (sterling/dollar), and USDJPY (dollar/yen). The forex trading market is global, decentralised, and trades 24 hours/day, 365 days/year. With over $5 trillion in currency traded each day, the forex space is the world’s largest and most liquid market.
