Ability to Trade in Rising or Declining Markets
Unlike equity and fixed income managers, a Forex trader is able to trade under any market conditions by either buying or selling a particular currency in relationship to another. In the Forex market there will always be one currency strengthening against another, unlike stock shares that move only up or down.

Global Diversification
The performance of equity and fixed income investments in one country is quite often, highly correlated with the performance of equity and fixed income investments in other countries. Global portfolios composed solely of equity and fixed income investments lack full diversification, even if they are geographically dispersed. Investing in currencies gives investors access to markets beyond equity and fixed income investments, providing more diversification and increased portfolio risk management.

* Without proper risk management, this high degree of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains
