A Fundamental Analysis is one which analyzes the current situations in the country of the currency, including such things as its economy, its political situation, and other related rumors. By the numbers, a country's economy depends on a number of quantifiable measurements such as its Central Bank's interest rate, the national unemployment level, tax policy and the rate of inflation.

Today, Forex is the largest financial market in the world with an average daily trading volume exceeding 5 trillion USD, roughly double that of the stock exchange. Forex also differs from the stock exchange in that it operates around the clock.
