Forex pairs explained
Forex trading is inherently risky and there are countless forex pairs to choose from. The only way to make a profit from forex trading is to understand how the market works. Luckily for you the Born2Invest forex team has collated some forex trading tips to get you started.
Forex trades are always made using currency pairs. Whenever you buy one currency you are selling another. In every pair there is a base currency, for example USD (US Dollar) and a quote currency, which would be HKD (Hong Kong Dollar).
The price of a currency pair represents the amount of quote currency, or HKD (Hong Kong Dollar), that you will need to spend in order to purchase a single unit of USD (US Dollar), the base currency. So using the current example you would need to spend 7.750504 of HKD (Hong Kong Dollar) in order to purchase 1 USD (US Dollar).

Is cryptocurrency trading the same as forex trading?
While cryptocurrency trading shares many similarities to forex trading there are some key differences. Yes both markets are volatile and have the idea of “pairs” but cryptocurrencies are broadly unregulated and fall into a larger number of categories. The crypto market is complicated and very difficult for a novice investor to navigate.
To make matters more confusing most cryptocurrency trades take place on exchanges. These are typically unregulated and come with a higher degree of risk than using a broker. Many traders opt to use a CFD broker with crypto pairings
