Additionally, it generally helps the private and public sectors to establish exchange rates for various currencies, which fluctuate based on a myriad of factors, such as inflation, interest rates, political stability, and economic performance. Beyond serving as an economic fulcrum for international trade, the foreign exchange market also offers opportunities for speculative investment. Corporations, financial institutions, governments, and retail investors partake in forex trading intending to profit from changes in currency values. Due to its size and liquidity, it is now the largest and most active financial market in the world. With the digital revolution, forex trading has become increasingly accessible, opening up opportunities for new markets and players to enter the arena, which is driving the market across the country.
