I read your question and will like to explain to you that Forex trading is basically buying and selling of currencies on designated platforms on the internet with a view to making profit.
The forex market is very volatile and if care is not taken, you may lose all your investment in a moment. But it is also lucrative, provided you follow the rules.
Please do a thorough research before investing in forex trading.

Forex is buying or selling of one currency in exchange for another. Forex is quoted in pairs, so for example USD/JPY. If you would to buy ("go long"), you would be purchasing US Dollar and selling Japanese Yen. Conversely, if you sell to get into a position ("go short"), you're buying Japanese Yen and selling US Dollars.
