FAQs

In the forex market, currencies are traded in pairs. Traders buy one currency by selling another. The first currency listed in the forex pair is the base currency, while the second currency is called the quote currency. If the trader expects the base currency to appreciate against the quote currency, he will buy the currency pair. If they expect the value of the base currency to depreciate against the quote currency, they will sell the currency pair. For instance, if the value of USD is expected to appreciate against INR, traders can buy USD/INR futures.

Like any form of trading, forex also comes with a degree of risk. Currency trading involves speculation, high leverage and a number of international factors. Moreover, currency markets are highly volatile and are influenced by several factors, including economic and political events. Thus, it is critical to evaluate risks before trading in the currency markets.

No, you do not need a demat account to engage in forex trading as most currency trades are settled in cash. However, you will need a forex trading account and a bank account to trade in currency markets. 

There are five types of currency markets. These are spot, forward, futures, options and swaps. In the spot market, currency trading takes place at real-time exchange rates. Forward markets deal in over-the-counter (OTC) forward contracts, while currency futures are traded through centralised exchanges in the futures market.

The options market gives traders a right to convert the currency on a future date but there is no obligation to do so. It allows traders the right to buy or sell currency at a specific rate and on a specific date. Swap transactions involve simultaneous borrowing and lending of two types of currencies between two investors.
