How to use it?
Before joining the forex exchange market, it is crucial for traders to understand the mechanism
The concept of buying and selling capital can be initially confusing because you're not buying any asset in exchange for money, like you do in the stock market, for example. Instead, you are simultaneously buying one currency and selling another, that is, doing an exchange.
In the stock market, traders buy and sell shares; in the futures market, traders buy and sell contracts; in the Forex market, traders buy and sell "lots". When you buy a currency lot, you are speculating on the value of one currency compared to another, that is, in the exchange rate itself.
Currencies are traded in pairs. The pair is written in a particular format, best demonstrated by way of two examples. The Euro and the US Dollar: EUR/USD. Or the British Pound and the Japanese Yen: GBP/JPY.
The pair is always expressed with the convention: Base currency / Quote currency.
The most traded currency is the US Dollar, and the pairs it is most frequently traded on are:
Euro / US Dollar (EUR/USD)
Pound Sterling / US Dollar (GBP/USD)
US Dollar / Japanese Yen (USD/JPY)
US Dollar / Swiss Franc (USD/CHF)
US Dollar / Canadian Dollar (USD/CAD)
Australian Dollar / US Dollar (AUD/USD)
