What is forex trading?

Trading forex involves simultaneously buying one currency and selling another. Through a combination of technical and fundamental analysis, traders speculate on the potential direction of currency prices and attempt to capture gains based on price movements. The forex market has no central exchange, however it takes place electronically on the global network of devices.  The market is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Keep in mind that some countries follow daylight savings and this can affect the trading session hours as well as the session times that you are trading on if you reside in one of these countries, so its important to plan your trades accordingly. The liquidity for different pairs can vary dramatically based on what trading session you are in. For example, AUDUSD may have more liquidity in the Sydney/Asian session where has EUR/GBP OR EUR/USD may have more liquidity in the London and New York session. Generally volumes and liquidity across all pairs is highest in the London and New York session. 

An example of leveaged CFD trading

Suppose you want to trade CFDs on crude oil. For this example, we will look at OILUSD. Lets suppose this instrument is trading at:

Bid, ask and spread

You can only buy at a price that someone is willing to sell at (ask) and you can only sell at a price that someone is willing to buy at (bid). The difference between these two prices is called the ‘spread’. This is the cost of entering the trade. Depending on the liquidity of the market, the broker your trading with and which instrument you are trading, the spread may be very tight, or quite wide. At ITG Traders, we source liquidity from a wide range of liquidity providers to ensure we can offer the tightest bid/ask spreads. 

Lets say you decide to buy 200k AUD/USD because you think the price of AUD will rise vs the USD. Your account leverage is 1:400. This means you need to deposit a minimum of 0.25% of the notional value of the position

So, you need to deposit:

0.25% x (AUD 200,000 x 0.7104)

Lets say in the few hours the price of AUD/USD has moved to Bid: 0.7113 and Ask: 0.7114. At this point you have a winning trade and you could close the trade by selling at the price of 0.7113.

Your profit would be:

200,000 x (0.7114-0.7104)

Forex Quotes & Rates

Currencies are always traded in pairs, such as AUD/USD or EUR/GBP. They are always denominated in 3 lettered codes such as AUD (Australian Dollar), EUR (Euro) or GBP (Great British Pound). Whenever you see a currency quote, the first currency is the base currency and the second currency is the ‘term’ or the ‘quote’ currency. For instance, say the AUDUSD is trading at 0.7104. This means to buy one unit of AUD you will need 0.7104 USD. 

The higher price is always the ask price, while the lower is always the bid price. The bid price is the maximum price someone is willing to buy the currency for, while the ask price is the lowest price someone is willing to sell the currency for. These rates are dynamic and are constantly changing due to supply and demand, market liquidity and economic news events. 


The difference between these two rates is called the ‘spread’. The higher price is always the ask price, while the lower is always the bid price. When you enter at the ‘bid’ price, the profit or loss on the trade is automatically calculated based off the ‘ask’ price. This is why when you enter a trade, you will always see a small loss showing as your open PnL (profit and loss) on the trade. 

What are 'pips'?

‘Pip’ is simply an acronym for ‘Point in Percentage’. It represents the smallest rate of change in an exchange rate and it is a standardised figure. For currencies with 4 numbers after the decimal place (like AUDUSD) one pip = $0.0001, however for some currencies like the Japenese Yen (JPY) one pip = $0.001. 

Pip value fluctuations have an effect on trading gains or losses. For example, if you decide to buy €10,000 and the EUR/USD pair is trading at 1.1086, the price you will have to pay will be $(10,000×1.1086) or $11,086.

If the exchange rate for this pair sees a 5-pip increase, which means the EUR/USD is now trading at 1.1091, then to buy €10,000, you will have to pay $11,091.
