A Forex Currency in General

Currencies (like USD or EUR) in the Forex Market are traded in pairs and that means you trade one currency against for another. Therefore, Forex currencies are always quoted in terms of their price against another currency (ie USD/EUR).

 

Base / Quote Currency

The first currency in a quote is called the base currency and the second is called the quote currency or the counter. That means that in EUR/USD, the EUR is the base and the USD is the quote.

The Major Forex pairs are:

1) EUR/USD, 2) GBP/USD, 3) USD/JPY, 4) AUD/USD, 5) USD/CAD and 6) USD/CHF
