Forex pairs explained

Considering making a trade? Forex is one of the most volatile markets in the world and there are hundreds of currency combinations to choose from. Understanding how the market works is key and we’re here to help you.

Currencies are always traded in pairs. When you buy or sell one currency you automatically buy or sell another. In every currency pair there is a base currency, in this case EUR (Euro) and a quote currency USD (US Dollar).

The price displayed for a currency pair represents the amount of quote currency, or USD (US Dollar) you will need to spend to purchase one unit of the base currency EUR (Euro) In this example that means you need to spend 1.14295 of USD (US Dollar) in order to purchase 1 EUR (Euro).

The three types of forex pairs

Forex pairs can be broadly separated into three categories; the majors, the commodity currencies, and the cross currencies:

  • Major currencies are the most traded currencies on the market. Which currencies make the cut will vary, but almost all lists will include EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, and USD/CHF
  • Commodity currencies are currency pairs where their value is closely tied to a commodity such as oil, coal, or iron ore. Examples include AUD/USD and USD/CAD
  • Cross currencies are currency pairs which don’t include USD. Examples include EUR/GBP and EUR/JPY.

Is cryptocurrency trading the same as forex trading?

Cryptocurrencies share many aspects with forex trading, namely the concept of currency pairs and high volatility but there are some key differences. Cryptocurrencies aren’t currencies persae, and are usually traded against Bitcoin, which takes the role of USD on many exchanges.

It is also difficult to trade cryptocurrency outside of exchanges and there is more security risk than trading with a registered broker. One way around this is to use a CFD broker which enable traders to purchase contractors for specific amounts of crypto, without directly owning it.
