How to trade FX?

Forex trading is essentially the buying of one currency and the simultaneous selling of another. Therefore when trading currencies we will always see them quoted in pairs.

There are three kinds of currency pairs:

  • Major currency pairs: all contain the US Dollar on one side – either on the base side or quote side. They are the most frequently traded pairs in the forex market, for instance, EUR/USD.
  • Cross-currency pairs: Currency pairs that do not contain the US Dollar are known as cross-currency pairs or simply “crosses”. The most active crosses are derived from the three major non-US dollar currencies (EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY).
  • Exotic currency pairs: they are made up of a major currency paired with the cur-rency of an emerging or a strong but smaller economy from a global perspective such as Hong Kong or Singapore and European countries outside of the Euro Zone, for instance EUR/TRY.
