A few days later you are forced to give up the trip, then go back to the bank and exchange the Canadian dollars in euros and you find yourself with 1,050 euros.

Here, this is forex , the first time you bought the Canadian currency with a certain exchange rate and the second time, when you returned them, the exchange rate had changed making you get a profit.

No special skills are required to be able to make investments in this type of market, you just need to choose a currency pair, choose the quantity and open a position on them, obviously you will have to predict the future trend of the price to receive a profit.

At the time of closing the operation you will see how much you have managed to earn, with forex you can operate on different assets such as:

  • Raw materials (Silver, Gas etc.)
  • Currency pairs ( GBP-JPY, USD-EUR etc.)
  • Cryptocurrencies ( Bitcoin , Ripple etc.)
  • Shares ( FCA , APPLE etc.)
  • Stock indices ( Future index , S&P 500 etc.)

So remember, you will have to make a purchase of an asset at a low value and then resell it at a higher value, this is the basic methodology for making a profit.
