The FX market is one of the world’s biggest markets. You can trade currency pairs from every corner of the world. However, there are a handful of pairs that are worth mentioning: more traded than any other currency pairs, the ‘majors’ dominate the FX market.
The four most traded currency pairs in the world have been coined the ‘majors’. They involve the following currencies: euro, US dollar, Japanese yen and pound sterling. The most popular pairing is the EUR/USD, followed by the USD/JPY, GBP/USD and USD/CHF pairs respectively.
There are a few other currencies that deserve to be mentioned. Informally known as the ‘commodity pairs’, the AUD/USD or ‘Aussie’, USD/CAD and NZD/USD are all frequently traded currency pairs. Unsurprisingly, this group of currencies derives its nickname from the fact that they come from countries that possess large quantities of natural resources.
The FX market is one of the most exciting and fast-paced for traders. Open 24/7 and being the biggest global market means it is extremely liquid; you can instantly buy and sell, so you’re never stuck in a trade. Daily currency fluctuations are usually fairly small, political disasters aside, moving around 1% or 100 pips. Study live forex rates and charts here. You can trade forex CFDs with Capital.com.
