High liquidity of funds

The daily trading volume of the spot foreign exchange market is as high as 1.4 trillion U.S. dollars, making the foreign exchange market the world's largest financial market with the most increased capital liquidity. The size of other financial markets is much inferior compared with the trading volume and the foreign exchange market. If you use a futures market with a daily trading volume of only 300 Yi dollars as an example, you will have a more precise concept of the degree of liquidity of funds. The foreign exchange market is always liquid, and you can trade or stop losses at any time.

24 hours a day

The foreign exchange market is a 24-hour uninterrupted market. On Sunday at 5 pm Eastern time, foreign exchange trading starts in Sydney, Australia, then at 7 o’clock in Tokyo, Japan, and then at 2 a.m. in London, England. Finally, It's New York, the USA, at 8 a.m. For investors, no matter when and where any news happens, investors can respond instantly. Investors can also flexibly plan the time of entry or exit.

Compared with the foreign exchange futures market in the United States, such as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or the Philadelphia Exchange, there are certain restrictions on business hours. For the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the business hours are from 8:20 am to 2 pm Eastern Time. Therefore, if any important news from London or Tokyo is not announced during business hours, the opening will become very chaotic the next day.

Quality and speed of transactions

Each transaction in the futures market has a different transaction date, a different price, or a different contract content. Every futures trader has the following experience. A futures transaction often takes up to half an hour to be completed, and the final transaction price must be very different. Although electronic trading is now assisted and guaranteed to restrict transactions, the transaction of market orders is still quite unstable. Foreign exchange dealers provide stable quotations and real-time transactions. Investors can use real-time market quotations to make transactions, even when the market is at its peak. In the futures market, the uncertainty of the transaction price is because all orders must be matched through a centralized exchange, which limits the number of traders at the same price, the flow of funds, and the total transaction amount. And every quotation of a foreign exchange dealer is executed, which means that as long as the investor is willing, the transaction can be completed! There will be no price but no transaction!

No commission for foreign exchange transactions

For trading in the futures market, in addition to the spread, investors must also bear additional commissions or handling fees. All financial commodities have a buying price and a selling price, and the difference between the buying and selling prices is defined as the spread or the cost of the transaction. To this day, because of the lack of transparency, limited spaces in the futures market still exist. Now, investors can use the real-time buying and selling prices displayed on the online trading platform to judge the depth of the market and the actual transaction costs. The spread of foreign exchange trading is much lower than that of futures trading, especially after-hours trading, because investors are susceptible to inferior liquidity and suffer significant losses.
