While the second currency, the US Dollar, is the counter or quote currency. If you decide to buy this particular currency pair, it clearly indicates how much of the quote currency USD is required to buy one unit of the base currency EUR.
In the above example, 1. If you sell the currency pair, you will receive 1. If you want an easy way to remember the principle think of the base currency as the basis for the trade.
Whether you are buying or selling a currency pair the base currency is always the same. In other words, it is always based on the first currency in the pair. The whole point behind Forex trading, is to buy a currency pair if you consider the base currency will increase in value appreciate , in relation to the quote currency.
If you think the base currency will decrease depreciate in value in relation to the quote currency, then you should choose to sell the pair. Some of you reading this will find this section a little boring. We appreciate that not everyone will want to know about the history.
But we consider it an important part of your Forex journey. The foreign exchange market, or Forex, FX, or currency market, as it now often known, refers to a global decentralized market in which currencies are traded. Under this heading are all aspects of buying, selling, and exchanging different currencies at a current or predetermined price.
Currencies have been traded across the globe for centuries, but one of the most important events in the history of the Forex market happened in the s, when the gold standard was introduced.
Before its introduction it would generally have been gold and silver that were used for international payment. The value of these two metals was very much up and down. And were affected by global supply and demand. If a new gold mine was discovered it would drive the price of gold down. The gold standard was introduced so that governments could guarantee the conversion of a currency into a specified amount of gold, and vice versa. A currencythat would be backed by gold, and should have stabilized world currencies, sounds a pretty good idea in theory.
The gold standard was dropped, but gold as a precious metal never lost its importance as a form of monetary value. Towards the end of World War II, Allied nations found there was a need for a monetary system to fill the void left by the loss of the gold standard. The reason for the gathering was to iron out the details of a new international monetary system.
They decided to call it the Bretton Woods system. The main part of this new system was for the US dollar to replace gold as the standard used for converting world currencies. It also led to the US dollar being the only world currency backed by gold, at that time. It also created three agencies that would oversee economic activity across the globe. However, this system suffered a number of problems. These included the US Treasury running low on its gold reserves, and not having enough gold to cover all the US dollars foreign central banks had in their reserves.
Bretton Woods came to an end in , when President Richard Nixon closed the gold window and refused to exchange US dollars for gold. And that is the three international agencies that were created and still exist today, albeit in a slightly different form. Nowadays, currencies are allowed to float freely against one another, which has led to the value of various currencies varying, and in turn this led to the need for foreign exchange services.
The services were provided by commercial and investment banks on behalf of their clients.
