Cash Forex Trading - Why you Shouldnt Miss Out on it

By: Harold Hsu

Although cash Forex trading has its inherent risks, this market offers a number of excellent advantages for retail traders provided that they trade with a reputable and reliable broker. In this article, I will cover 3 advantages of trading in the cash Forex market.

Low Entry Costs

Retail traders with limited funds of a few hundred dollars are able to open a trading account with little difficulty. This is because the Forex market allows for high leverage trading, meaning that you can control a large amount of currency using only a fraction of your own money. However, it should be noted that leverage is a double-edged sword and one should be careful when dealing with too much leverage.

Also, new traders who are interested in test driving the Forex market are able to do so by trading in lots as little as one dollar. Of course, the potential profits (and losses) of these accounts are low, but they provide a valuable learning experience for people who wish to learn how to trade with real money.

Guaranteed Limited Risk

The maximum you can lose in Forex trading is the amount of money you put in your trading account. And although nobody wishes for this to happen to their own trading accounts, traders won't have to worry about losing the shirt of their backs (unless they sold their shirts to put money into their trading accounts).

Real-Time Market Price Quotes

Most Forex brokers provide live, streaming price quotes at no cost via their trading platforms. This factor, together with the high liquidity of the Forex market greatly reduces the chance of any price execution slippages.
