The three types of forex pairs

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

  • Major currencies are the most commonly traded currencies on the market. Different publications will use different criteria but pretty much every list will include EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, and USD/CHF
  • ll Commodity currencies are currency pairs that are closely linked to commodities such as oil, iron ore, and coal. Common examples include AUD/USD and USD/CAD
  • Cross currencies include all currency pairs that 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.
