What are Currency Pairs?
Currency pairs are financial instruments where one currency is quoted against another currency. The quote indicates the
amount you would pay in one currency for the other.
Here's a simplified
The currency pair GBP/USD is at 1.15. You
can exchange 1 GBP for 1.15 USD.
- If GBP/USD started the day at 1.15, and by the
end of the day rose to 1.16, it's because the
Sterling has strengthened against the Dollar.
- If GBP/USD started the day at 1.15, then drops 1.13, it's because the Sterling has weakened against the Dollar.
