internationally. Among all these currencies, the
US dollar is the most relevant currency, most of
the time traders take it as a base currency.

  • When in currency pare we do not use US Dollar
    then we consider it as a minor currency or it is
    called cross-currency. Some minor currencies are
    British pound, Euro, or Japanese yen, such as
  • EUR/GBP (euro/British pound)
  • GBP/JPY (British pound/Japanese yen)
  • CHF/JPY (Swiss franc/Japanese yen)

    Baht and Norwegian or Swedish krone. However,
    these currencies have greater risk and volatility.
