What is Currency Trading?

Currencies are always traded in pairs, with the first currency in the pair called the base currency and the second called the quote currency. Forex traders simultaneously buy one currency in the pair and sell the other, depending on how they think the currencies’ values will change in relation to each other. For a more detailed explanation, head on over to our Forex Trading for Beginners guide.

Currency values can be affected by a vast number of fundamental factors that impact the health of a nation’s economy, including inflation, interest rates, government debt levels and political stability. Typically, forex investors find the greatest volatility before and after key economic or political announcements as traders speculate on their potential impact.

Currency pairs are split into three categories. Major currency pairs are the most traded pairs in the forex industry and therefore enjoy the most liquidity. They usually include the US dollar as one half of the pair, like the EUR/USD and the USD/JPY. Other commonly traded major pairs include EUR/JPY and the EUR/GBP.

What is FX indices trading?

An FX index is composed of 5 or 6 major pairs, and measures the strength of a particular currency against a collection of other major FX pairs.

The strength of the index is directly related to the price fluctuations of these currency pairs. When that particular currency rises in price compared to the other currencies, the value of the index increases.

These products are popular amongst traders who prefer to diversify their risk instead of investing in the price movement of a single or currency pair.

We offer six different FX indices:
