Explaining that the Forex, which has become one of the world's key markets in recent years, will only continue to grow, İş Yatırım Securities Marketing Manager Can Pamir says, "With over four trillion dollars worth of transaction volume, in which nations exchange foreign currency or forex in spot transactions is considered to be the world's most liquid market.
Access and technological developments in recent years have made things much easier for financial market players which have always harbored an interest in the forex market.
Parallel to this, small portfolio independent investors are now able to conduct a serious volume of transactions on foreign exchange parities by using computers or mobile devices."
OVER FIVE BILLION DOLLARS A DAY

"Following this development, the forex transaction volume by Turkish investors increased daily. By the end of 2012, we are expecting the daily forex transaction volume to surpass five billion dollars. When taking this trend and global market figures into consideration, we can comfortably say that Turkey's forex market will only continue to develop further."
COMPETITION TO INCREASE IN 2013
