Forex trading is for anyone who wants to make investments in the currency market. The features that distinguish the Forex market from the stock or commodities markets include:
24/5 market–doesn’t close except on the weekends easier access to leverage easier access to shorting since each pair is set up in opposition to another currency. Forex is well-suited for people who have limited time to trade, but can also be traded short-term using strategies like scalping or high-frequency trading. Scalping and high-frequency trading are very short-term strategies and not for someone who wants a passive income stream. The closest Forex comes to a passive activity is trading on a long-term timeframe, which in Forex can be a few months or years. You could earn a passive income on the interest difference between the two currencies. This is known as a carry trade.
