A global market where national currencies are traded against one another is the forex market. A product made from a commodity has also been processed in the constantly expanding and evolving market. Although they share parallels with stock and futures markets, forex markets, which have the biggest transaction volume in the world, have several peculiar characteristics. The pricing discrepancies that arise as a result of the brokerage houses on which the transactions are done with various standards are the most significant illustration that can be made of this issue.
