I must say there's still no concrete decision whether forex is NOT gambling, right? but 90 % fact shows forex surely not TRADING, called it TRADING simply more 'selling' and not to scary than called it win or lose/gamble/play/bet/money games etc, its just'more' economical and job related term. I dare to bet $1000 for this statement, 95% of forex players in this world suffer losing than winning or 'profit', whatever you want to called it. We must go back to word TRADE, what is TRADE? (Trade, also called goods exchange economy, is to transfer the ownership of goods from one person or entity to another by getting a product or service in exchange from the buyer. Trade is sometimes loosely called commerce or financial transaction or barter. A network that allows trade is called a market. The original form of trade was barter, the direct exchange of goods and services. Later one side of the barter were the metals, precious metals (poles[clarification needed], coins), bill, paper money. Modern traders instead generally negotiate through a medium of exchange, such as money. As a result, buying can be separated from selling, or earning. The invention of money (and later credit, paper money and non-physical money) greatly simplified and promoted trade. Trade between two traders is called bilateral trade, while trade between more than two traders is called multilateral trade.) SO IN MY CONCLUTION BASED ON THIS FACT FOREX IS A GAMBLING! PERIOD! if there is something real which you buy/sell than it can be called trade but it simply just playing with money to gain money. So more precisely its money games.
