What is Forex?

Forex Trading Overview


Base currency | Quote currency

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).

Forex is dynamic, global, and liquid, holding the crown of the world’s largest market, with a daily turnover predicted in excess of $4 trillion dollars.
