The advertisements seem too good to pass up. They tout high returns coupled with low risks from investments in foreign currency (forex) contracts. Sometimes they even offer lucrative employment opportunities in forex trading. There are entire systems based on this style of trading. Some of them do nothing but place straddle orders all the time. Traders never care which way the markets will go, as long as they move. These kind of systems call for updating the orders every predetermined time interval. For example, once a day. This means that old orders/trades must be canceled/closed every day at the same time. That is when new orders are placed. People looking for mechanical trading strategies might find this approach suitable, since the same thing is done over and over again without any in depth analysis.

Foreign exchange is traded in an over-the-counter market where brokers/dealers negotiate directly with one another, so there is no central exchange or clearing house The biggest geographic trading center is the United Kingdom, primarily London. According to TheCityUK , it is estimated that London increased its share of global turnover in traditional transactions from 34.6% in April 2007 to 36.7% in April 2010. Due to London's dominance in the market, a particular currency's quoted price is usually the London market price.
