Most CFD brokers in the world offer currency trading, also known as forex trading, to their clients. Forex is, after all, the most popular market for retail traders today, with more than USD 5 trillion changing hands on a daily basis. However, it should be mentioned that only a small portion of this is made up by retail traders like us. Most of the forex market consists of banks exchanging currency with each other, large hedge funds, and companies that need to make foreign currency transactions.
Because some of the largest currencies in the world are traded so much, the cost of trading them also tends to be quite low. This is particularly true for major currency pairs like the EUR/USD, which is known for its tight spreads. This in itself makes the currency market attractive for many traders.
