Foreign exchange

What is foreign exchange?

It's short for international exchange. When one party is in Beijing and the other party is in Shanghai, the payment is called internal exchange. When one party is in Beijing and the other is in New York, the payment activity transcends national boundaries. The payment is called international exchange. Foreign exchange is expressed in foreign currency, used for international settlement of credit and payment documents. Foreign exchange includes bank deposits, bank checks, commercial bills, foreign government bonds and their long-term and short-term securities, foreign banknotes, etc.

Why do you trade foreign exchange?

The foreign exchange market is the most heavily traded market in the world and can be traded 24 hours a day:

  • Continuous trading opportunities because the value of currencies is always going up and down
  • Low spread, which reflects real-time circulation. Click to see the real-time quote table of currency pair spread

The market perspective

It opens 24 hours from 10pm GMT on Sunday to 10pm GMT on Friday. The day starts in Sydney, then shifts to Tokyo, London and New York.

Daily trading volume in the global foreign exchange market comes from two parts:

  • Foreign trade (5%). It is generated by companies buying or selling goods in countries other than their home countries and converting the profits back into their own currencies.
  • Speculative trading for profit (95%).
  • Currency pairs: major currency pairs, non-major currency pairs and cross currency pairs (cross plates)

Currency pairs are divided into three categories:

  • Major currency pairs: those with the highest volume of transactions and the fastest circulation, such as euro/dollar (EUR/USD).
  • Low-volume currency pairs: commodity currencies such as Australian dollar/us dollar (AUD/USD) and Nordic currencies.
  • Cross currency pair: a currency pair in which two currencies do not include us dollars.
