Algorithmic Forex Trading

Forex is the international foreign exchange market. Banks, institutions, and individual traders purchase and sell currencies to and from one another via different foreign currency brokers. The daily trading volume of currencies across the world is over £4.15 trillion every single day. This is a drastically larger sum than that of all stock markets. Forex is among the most liquid and volatile markets in the world. This makes it perfect for algorithmic trading.

Algorithmic trading is the buying and selling of an asset class through the use of coded algorithms. This means that there is no human input in day-today trade execution. The only human inputs are in the creation of the initial rule set and directions the algorithm will follow when executing trades. This makes trading far less stressful and far more efficient for investors, as it requires almost no effort on their part. Unless they’re designing the algorithm that is.

  1. Liquidity – Capital invested in forex trading is extremely liquid. Meaning that it can be moved out of your account fairly rapidly. There are no stipulations or laws on withdrawals like other funds people might have. If you want your money out of the market, you can simply take it out.
  2. Volatility – The foreign currency market is an extremely volatile one. While this might be perceived as intimidating for some due to the chances of larger losses, this means that the opportunity for gains is also much larger. Not to mention, that a back tested and well-reviewed software will be doing it for you.
  3. Passive Income – Likely the most important reason of all. This is all done in the background, in order to allow you to focus on the things that are most important. This is what makes this opportunity such a powerful tool.
  4. Tax Laws – While it varies from country to country, tax laws in regards to gains through forex trading can be favorable to that of other investments.
