What exactly Does “Forex” Mean?

In short, it means currency trading. Because it represents transactions that take place according to the value of the currencies of the countries against each other.

This general definition may not be enough for you. But we advise you to think simply like this:

When you go to a foreign country, you convert the TL you have into the money of that country. When you make this transaction, you give the TL you have to the exchange office and you will receive foreign currency in return.

So suppose you are going to convert your money into euros. You will receive about 113 euros (1 Euro = 8.84 TL) for the 1000 TL you have. We all already know about this transformation.

Forex is the market where investments are made on these transformations. It is the largest market in the world with a daily trading volume of about $ 7 trillion. If you are thinking about how to make a profit on the mobility of currencies by converting your savings into dollars, you will do the same in forex. You may simply think that you are performing the transactions you made at the exchange office in a more professional way.

Is Forex Legal?

Forex is controlled by the market supervisory authorities of each country. In our country, the Capital Markets Board (CMB) has taken on this task.

The CMB stated that it was legal in 2011 as a result of its regulations on forex. Of course, market audits and regulations have continued after this date. The most recent regulation came into force in February 2017.
