Foreign exchange, or forex, is the conversion of one country’s currency into another.
In a free economy, a country’s currency is valued according to the laws of supply and demand.
In other words, a currency’s value can be pegged to another country’s currency, such as the U.S. dollar, or even to a basket of currencies.
A country’s currency value may also be set by the country’s government.
However, most countries float their currencies freely against those of other countries, which keeps them in constant fluctuation.
Due to their simple construction and low maintenance, time spreads (a.k.a. calendar spreads) are some of the most widely used strategies in the options world. This manual offers step-by-step instruction on how to place and manage long and short time spreads in order to maximize the effect that time decay and volatility have on the positions.
