Most brokers that offer cryptocurrency CFDs also offer traditional currencies for trading, or what is normally referred to as forex. As most traders know, the forex market is the world’s largest financial market by far, with more than USD 5 trillion changing hands on a daily basis.
Currency trading has long been popular among traders. One reason for this is obviously the huge amount of liquidity in this market, which makes it possible to buy and sell currency pairs quickly regardless of how large the order is. Another reason for its popularity is that the forex market is open 24 hours a day, which means that traders from around the world can trade whenever it suits them. Unlike the crypto market, however, the forex market is closed for trading during the weekends.
