Trade Popular Currency Pairs - FXCM

Currency Pairs

FXCM offers 39 currency pairs on the Trading Station and MetaTrader 4 platforms. The first currency in a currency pair is the "base currency"; the second currency is the "counter currency". When you buy or sell a currency pair, you are performing that action on the base currency.

Available Currency Pairs

The "majors" and the "commodity pairs" are the most liquid and most widely traded currency pairs in the forex market. These pairs and their combinations (EUR/JPY, GBP/JPY, and EUR/GBP) make up the vast majority of all trading in the forex market. Because these pairs typically have the largest volume of buyers and sellers, they also typically will have the tightest spreads.

  • Majors: EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, USD/CHF
  • Commodity Pairs: AUD/USD, USD/CAD, NZD/USD

There are however many other currency pairs that allow you to take advantage of macroeconomic events in specific international markets, such as the USD/CNH (US Dollar/Chinese Yuan), USD/MXN (US Dollar/Mexican Peso), and USD/RUB (US Dollar/Russian Ruble). See all Currency Pairs.
