- What are assets
IAssets in the trading world are a commodity. These include money, securities, raw materials, indices and digital currencies. The price of an asset is affected by the volume of trades that are made for the asset. The more often an asset is bought, the higher the price becomes. If the asset starts to sell actively, the price falls. The fluctuation in the value of an asset per unit of time is called the rate of volatility.
The main trader`s goal is not to buy a commodity, but to make a profit due to the difference between the purchase price and sale price. So, you can earn when the value of the asset rises and when it falls. There are 5 main types of assets: currency pairs, stocks, indices, commodities and crypto currencies.
