Over time, financial derivatives and transactions with them were located on the front pages of magazines and newspapers specialized in exorbitant gains and losses derived from transactions with financial derivatives. So, before starting an investment in the currency market, or rather, before they start a fight "melee" the consequences of this type of investment, the investor must understand the forces underlying concepts leading foreign exchange market and these forces.
