Foreign exchange market is the mechanism by which purchasing power of a firm is transferred from one country to another, to obtain and provide credit for international trade, and also minimize exposure to foreign exchange risks. Foreign exchange market involves huge trading volume that represents the largest asset class in the world leading to high liquidity. Another advantage is that conducting business globally using foreign exchange market, you are provided with a platform to operate on a 24hour basis except on weekends.
