Forex, or FX, trading involves the act of buying one currency while simultaneously selling another. A currency pair (i.e. NZD/USD, New Zealand Dollar/US Dollar) shows how many units of the quote currency (the second currency, USD) you would receive for one unit of base currency (the first currency, NZD).
