The world is changing at an alarming rate and we now live in what is called the “information age”.  In addition, financial markets have deepened, with new instruments being introduced and traded, from ETFs, REITs, commodities, indices to equities. At the heart of this revolution, is the foreign exchange (FX) market. Piggy believes that FX trading  is where we find technology and global finance perfectly converging and that we can no longer afford to ignore forex anymore! Technology enables “anyone, anywhere”, who has an internet connection, to have access to the global FX market. The growth and popularity of FX market can largely be attributed to the unique characteristics of the market itself;

  • The FX market represents the largest asset class in the world in terms of liquidity averaging about USD 5.1 trillion per day;
  • It is a continuous market, operating 24 hours a day – except weekends. The fact that forex currency trading has no centralised marketplace means that currencies can be traded at any given time, creating a great opportunity for traders to buy and sell currencies around the clock 24 hours a day, 5 days a week;
  • It is the only market closest to the ideal of perfect competition, notwithstanding currency intervention by central banks. The foreign exchange market spans the globe, with prices moving and currencies traded somewhere every hour of every business day;
  • The FX market has high volatility and low margins of relative profit compared with other markets of a fixed income nature; and
  • The market makes use of leverage to enhance profit and loss margins. Leverage, if properly used, can be a profitable means of investing.
