FX & Money Markets
Foreign exchange (FX or forex) jobs and money markets jobs involve the trading of currencies around the world. Forex professionals essentially try to predict how economic or political factors will call one currency to appreciate or depreciate against another.
Money markets professionals do a similar thing, but work with financial instruments with very high liquidity and short maturity, such as treasury bills, bankers acceptances or federal funds.
In both forex and the money markets, the stakes are high, but these are highly lucrative careers for the right people.
Most FX professionals are employed by investment banks, trading houses, asset managers or commercial banks.
