The first most common term you can expect to see a lot of is Pips. The following are 12 terms you're likely to encounter:

Is Currency Trading Worth It?

[fa icon="calendar'] May 18, 2019 6:00:00 AM / by Lukas MacMacKen posted in trader on the street, learn to trade, beginner trader, trading goals

A very popular question is, “Is trading FOREX really worth it?" or “Can FOREX actually be profitable?” These two questions go hand in hand.

If currency trading is only going to make a dollar or two a month, yes, that's profit, but is it really considered profitable to you? And is that profit worth the hours of trading you put into the market? The individuals who make others believe that FOREX trading isn’t worth it are typically those who started out, lost a bit, and quit. Companies like Trader on the Street aim to show those interested in trading that it can be worth it if you persevere.

If you think about it, banks control almost every dollar that is spent in the world. Cash is a dying payment method being replaced with the tap of a phone, swipe of a magnet, and push of a button on an app Each of those pulls the money from your bank and puts it into someone else's. Even on payday, unless you’re working under the table for a nice cash gig or serving food for tips, your main income is a paycheck you put in the bank or an electronic transfer of funds.

Hello to you all. In this article, I thought it would be a great idea to discuss why the currency market is the best source you could consider to invest your finances in.
