Profit potential from rising and falling markets
You can trade freely in the market as far as your potential goes. If you believe that the price of a currency will increase, you can buy it or go long. Increased currency price indicates you can sell it at the increased price. You can make up for huge profits by trading on volumes. However, if you believe that the currency value is going to fall, you can sell it or go short.
Seasoned stock traders can make a huge amount of profits and even become overnight millionaires. On the other hand, if you desire huge amount of profits and start trading without following the tricks of the trade you can also end up losing a lot of money. Therefore, you should always be cautious while you are operating in the Forex market or stock market.
