EUR/USD

Equally influenced by two of the largest economies in the world, EUR/USD has become the most traded currency. It is popular for consistently having the lowest spread on the Forex market and often being less volatile than other pairs.

GBP/USD

GBP/USD is one of the oldest currency pairs to have been traded around the globe. Its volatility has increased significantly since the economic crisis in Europe and the Brexit referendum, leading up to the historically low GBP prices in 2018.

USD/JPY

The Japanese pair is used by many traders as safe heaven or a carry trade (selling it to buy currencies that pay a lot of interest) due to Bank of Japan keeping the interest rates low. That’s why some traders use USD/JPY for strategies based on macroeconomics.

AUD/USD

Тhe Australian Dollar is often viewed as a commodity currency since the country’s export mostly consists of raw materials. As a big exporter to China, the AUD also reflects the Chinese economy. The AUD has high interest rates and liquidity.

USD/CHF

Similarly to USD/JPY, the “Swissie” pair is also considered a safe haven currency. Due to its stability, it can be used as a reserve currency. Traders often use the popular USD/CHF pair to trade safely around geopolitical events and potential economic instability.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD is a pair associated with commodities. This is due to the extensive trade between the U.S. and Canada. The pair allows for speculation on energy prices, since a lot of natural resources, particularly oil, are exchanged between the countries.

Once you are at ease trading major currency pairs you may want to look into the minor and exotic pairs. Minor pairs are made up from combinations of the major currencies and include pairs like EUR/GBP, EUR/CHF, GBP/JPY, NZD/USD, and AUD/NZD. Exotic currencies are non-major currencies that are generally less liquid and traded at low volume. Examples for exotic pairs are EUR/TRY, USD/PLN or USD/ZAR.
