What is traded in forex?
The simple answer is MONEY. Because you’re not buying anything physical, forex trading can be confusing. In forex trading, when you buy, say, the US dollars , you are basically buying a “share” in the USA economy.
You are betting that the USA economy is doing well, and will even get better as time goes. Once you sell those “shares” back to the market, hopefully, you will end up with a profit.
