“FX” refers to trading (transaction) of two different currencies. To be exact, FX stands for “margin Foreign exchange trading” and means foreign exchange margin trading. We deposit margin on FX company and securities company, and it is a financial product that trades foreign exchange of larger amount more. We buy and sell foreign currencies such as US dollar and euro, and we will enter into transactions where profit and loss occurs.

Let’s say, for example, now $ 1 = 120 yen. To get 1 dollar, you can not get it without paying 120 yen in Japanese yen. Let’s say you exchanged 120 yen and 1 dollar, and you got a dollar. After 1 month, the exchange rate fluctuated, and it became 121 dollars = 1 dollar. At this time, if you exchange 1 dollar for Japanese yen, you can get 121 yen. In other words, from 120 yen you paid one month ago, you got the “1 yen” profit.

Since it is unlikely that the exchange rate will not change at such exchange rate, profit and loss will arise depending on whether it will become “yen depreciation” or “yen appreciation” from the moment of trading. In this way, buying and selling currencies between the two countries is FX, which is based on a very simple mechanism.
