Forex, short for foreign exchange, is a decentralized global market where currencies are traded. One of the main benefits of forex trading is that it enables individuals and institutions to take advantage of trading opportunities on currency volatility. This is because currency values fluctuate constantly in relation to various economic and geopolitical factors, such as interest rates, inflation, political instability, and natural disasters.

By trading Forex CFDs, individuals can buy and sell currencies with the goal of making a profit from the difference in exchange rates. For instance, if you think that the US Dollar will appreciate against the Euro, you can buy US Dollars with Euros at the current exchange rate. If your forecast is accurate and the US Dollar does appreciate, you can sell your US Dollars for more Euros than you initially spent, making a profit.

Forex trading also provides several other benefits, such as leveraged trading, high liquidity, low transaction costs, and the ability to trade 24 hours a day, five days a week. You can choose between the MT4 and MT5 platforms and the Damac Markets App to start trading Forex.

Damac Markets has created a dedicated page on What Forex Trading is.


Before trading, learn the basic forex strategies and how to analyze currency markets correctly. Then, open a Damac Live or Demo Account and pick your trading platform. Finally, choose your currency pair and open your first position.

Some of the most traded Forex pairs are:

  1. EUR/USD (Euro/US Dollar)
  2. USD/JPY (US Dollar/Japanese Yen)
  3. GBP/USD (British Pound/US Dollar)
  4. USD/CHF (US Dollar/Swiss Franc)
  5. AUD/USD (Australian Dollar/US Dollar)
  6. USD/CAD (US Dollar/Canadian Dollar)
  7. NZD/USD (New Zealand Dollar/US Dollar)

These currency pairs are referred to as major currency pairs, and they account for more than 80% of the daily trading volume in the Forex market.

At Daio Trade Capital, we have various account types to meet the different needs of different traders. No matter what your trading strategy, level of funding or risk tolerance is, there is an account for you. Please, visit our Accounts Page for more details.

The Forex market is open 24 hours a day, five days a week and traded online with price quotes changing constantly. There are generally four main trading sessions:

  • Sydney session
  • Tokyo session
  • London session
  • New York session

Both the Sydney and Tokyo sessions are customarily referred to as Asian sessions. This is why Forex is usually referred to as the 3-session market: Asian, London, and New York. Trading hours may vary depending on the currency pair you wish to trade.

You can trade Forex on your phone with the MT5. Our app lets you access the Forex market and trade currencies from anywhere in the world and manage your positions on the go. The Daio mt5 App is free to download on Android from the Google Play.

Trading Forex can provide many opportunities for profit, but it also involves a high level of risk of loss. Therefore, you need to have a sound trading plan and a disciplined approach to risk management when you trade Forex. At Damac, you can access a wide range of educational resources to help you enhance your trading skills.
