Currency Investing Basics Part One

Currency investing basics, part one has been created to expand your Financial IQ covering the basic principles of investing in the foreign exchange markets.

As with any free market, the basic premise is supply and demand; when an abundance of investors buys a currency, a shortage of the currency is created, increasing the value and price. When they sell a currency, an oversupply is created, causing the demand for the currency to decrease, suppressing its price and value.

The first step is to think of trading and investing as a business, and it’s not a get rich quick scheme. There is no short cut.

people jump into the trap of thinking about much money they are going to make instead of understanding what they are doing it first.
