List of All Forex Currency Pairs According to Major, Exotic and Precious Metals

4 min read

This article presents a list of all the Forex currency pairs. The currency pairs are grouped according to major, exotic, precious, and correlated pairs.

Forex currency pairs are the integral instruments being traded in Forex. They are also called securities. In Forex unlike stocks and commodities, the security or trading instruments are paired in a BUY/SELL or SELL/BUY pattern. For example the Forex currency pair EURUSD technically would mean buy the Euro and sell the Dollar or sell the EUR and buy the Dollar. Profits are made when the EUR for example is bought at 1.4500 dollars and later sold at 2.4950 dollars (i.e. buy EURUSD at $1.4500 and later sell when EUR is $2.4950) This is where the slogan “Buy LOW and Sell HIGH” comes in.

A lot of traders often do not know the Forex currency pairs available in Forex. Most traders would have been more successful only if they diversify their strategies to include other currency pairs.

Other details such as swaps, spreads, or currency pip range are not included in the list as they are broker specifics, and they are dynamic in nature.

An undesirable economic shock on either of these pairs can send ripple effects that would affect the world economy. These pairs are also known for their high volatility.

4. Forex Currency – Correlated Pairs

Correlated pairs are currency pairs that have similar price patterns, movement, reactions, and price action. Therefore it is not wise to trade some of these pairs at the same time because it would multiply the risk in your account when the market goes against you. Also it would be disastrous to trade some of these pairs at the same time because they move against themselves. For example if there is a sell signal on the EURUSD, then it is 95% likely that the same signal would appear on the GBPUSD but not likely with the same intensity.

  1. In the awesome pattern of things you receive a B- with regard to hard work. Where exactly you confused us was first in your facts. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be much more true in this article. Having said that, permit me say to you what exactly did deliver the results. Your article (parts of it) is pretty powerful and this is possibly why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can easily notice a leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not certain of exactly how you seem to unite the points which inturn produce the actual final result. For now I will yield to your point however trust in the future you connect the dots much better.

  2. A person necessarily lend a hand to make seriously articles I would state. That is the first time I frequented your web page and thus far? I amazed with the analysis you made to create this particular post extraordinary. Fantastic job!
