Who is a forex broker?

A forex broker or a foreign exchange broker is a firm that provides a platform to the traders to buy or sell foreign currencies. The forex broker is not an individual person but an organization backed by banks, financial institutions, hedge funds, investment management firms etc. Their functions are regulated by the central banks or other regulatory authorities to allow traders trade in the forex market. The forex market is a huge market that is not dominated by any single authority but links a huge network of exchanges and brokers in the global platform. The foreign exchange market is the largest financial market that witnesses a huge amount of transactions every day. Traders from across the world participate in the forex market to earn huge money while selling or buying currencies.


A foreign exchange broker earns his compensation from the ask-bid spread of a currency pair. E.g. a forex broker buys euros at 1. 3274 dollars and sells the same at 1.3277 dollars, then he earns $0.0003 per euro. So, if he trades for 10,000 euros, he roughly makes a profit of $3 in the process. They trade for a bulk amount of currencies so the profit margin is naturally huge. A Forex Broker owns a small portion of the huge volume of the global foreign exchange market.
