Introduction to Forex trading

Forex trading involves buying and selling of currency. 

Currencies are traded as pairs. 

For example Euro and US dollar written as EurUsd,  Euro and Great Britain pound written as EurGbp, Great Britain pound and US dollar written as GbpUsd. 

The first mentioned currency is known as the base currency. 

For example the EurUsd, the Euro is the base currency. 

If the exchange rate was 1.13720 written as EurUsd=1.1372 it means one Euro cost 1.1372

This value usually changes every minute. 

That’s where forex trading comes into play. 

If the value changes to 1.1373

The change is 1.1373-1.1372=0.0001.  That small change(the last digit) is what we call a pip. 

For a standard account a pip is worth one dollar. So a small change of 0.0006 will give you 6 dollars.
