Getting started with JP Markets

Looking into joining the growing Forex industry but don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered. Make your way through the information below to gear you up for your trading journey.  

What is Forex?

Forex trading, or foreign exchange trading, involves the buying and selling of currencies on the foreign exchange market with the aim of making a profit. The forex market is one of the largest financial markets globally, and it operates 24 hours a day, five days a week. 

In forex trading, participants trade currency pairs, where one currency is exchanged for another at an agreed-upon exchange rate. Traders can profit from changes in currency exchange rates by buying a currency pair at a lower price and selling it at a higher price or by selling a currency pair at a higher price and buying it back at a lower price. 

Forex trading requires a good understanding of the market, economic factors, and technical analysis. It can be highly volatile and involves risks, so individuals interested in forex trading should educate themselves and consider practicing with a demo account before engaging in real trading. Additionally, it’s important to manage risks carefully and be aware of the potential for both gains and losses in the forex market. 

What is a Broker?

A Forex broker, short for foreign exchange broker, is a financial intermediary that facilitates the trading of currencies on the foreign exchange market. Forex brokers provide a platform for individuals and institutions to buy and sell currency pairs. 

Key functions of forex brokers include:

Platform Access

They offer trading platforms that allow traders to execute buy or sell orders in the foreign exchange market.

Market Information

Forex brokers provide real-time price quotes, charts, and other relevant market information to help traders make informed decisions.

Order Execution

They execute buy or sell orders on behalf of their clients in the forex market.


Many brokers offer leverage, allowing traders to control larger positions with a relatively small amount of capital. While leverage can amplify profits, it also increases the risk of significant losses.

Account Management

Forex brokers manage trading accounts, including handling deposits, withdrawals, and other administrative tasks.

Research and Analysis

Some brokers provide research and analysis tools to assist traders in making trading decisions.

Fully regulated

When choosing a Forex broker, it’s crucial to consider factors such as regulation, trading fees, available currency pairs, customer support, and the trading platform. Regulatory oversight is important to ensure the broker operates transparently and fairly. JP Markets proudly has an ODP licence, setting us above the rest.  

Traders should exercise caution and conduct thorough research before selecting a Forex broker to ensure a safe and reliable trading environment.
