• The important role of Banks in Forex trading
Banks play a very important role in FOREX trading. In fact, most of the market plays against larger banks, hedge funds and big-money players.

Some of this trading represents foreign currency conversions on behalf of customers’ needs while some is carried out by the banks’ proprietary trading desk for speculative purpose.

We can profit from the moves these big players cause in the market by finding our own edge in the market and trading it with discipline.
