Foreign Exchange, also known as Forex or FX, is the exchange of one currency for another.

Discover a wide range of currency ETPs and trade without limits at a flat rate with the PRIME Broker.
For a long time, foreign exchange markets were reserved for investors with a lot of experience. Currency ETPs now offer a simpler investment solution: they provide a cost-effective way to participate in the performance of various currencies. ETPs are products that track the performance of a currency pair and are traded on regulated markets.
What are the advantages of investing in currencies through ETPs?
Availability: Currency ETPs are traded on the stock exchange. This means they can be traded at any time during trading hours.
Costs: Investing in currencies through ETPs is generally cost-effective. Since investors no longer have to buy individual currencies, but instead acquire currency pairs via a corresponding ETP, they can benefit from low fees (TER).
Diversification: With currency ETPs, different currencies can be included in an ETF portfolio in a simple, transparent and cost-effective way.

Especially globally relevant currencies are often traded against each other. The most traded currency pairs are mainly EUR/USD (Euro/US Dollar), USD/JPY (US Dollar/Japanese Yen) and GBP/USD (British Pound/US Dollar).
By investing in foreign currencies, you can spread your risk across different markets and currencies, reducing your dependence on any particular currency or market.
2. Risk management
Currencies fluctuate in value and therefore provide an opportunity for trading. In addition, you can use foreign exchange to manage the risk of currency fluctuations or to hedge against inflation. Example: If investors from the USA expect political risks or strong inflation in their own country, they can hedge by placing a forex trade from US Dollar against Euro.
