Forex Day Traders, investors and speculators - trade currencies directly in order to benefit from movements in the currency exchange markets. Generally, geopolitical activity will have a direct impact in the Forex markets – something current day Forex traders monitor with caution. This same group of traders will try to take advantage of short term currency market movements by playing the Forex market both long and short. When dealing with a bull Forex market, currency traders will buy a currency pair and sell it again in a short period of time – to reap small profits, again and again. Bear market Forex traders will try to take advantage of negative Forex market sentiment by short selling a currency pair then, covering the position in a short period of time before the trend begins to turn against them.

In recent weeks with the global financial unrest in Greece – which is still going on – Forex traders were wagering heavily on shorting the EUR/USD, and winning big. Forex traders have to be alert when betting the bank to the downside – direction can change rapidly and, in the blink of an eye. So whether you are a newbie Forex trader or a veteran, testing the waters of Forex trading during other market sessions can be very lucrative.
