Well, we mentioned even before that Forex was exclusive for people who had good money. You can imagine that, if the average trading amount was $100,000, Forex was a dream for most people. A very good solution came in light. It is called ‘leverage’ and is calculated in ratio. The most common leverage is 100:1, which means that for 1 Dollar you have in your account, you can trade up to 100 dollars. If you fund your account with $250 and choose the leverage 100:1, you will be exposed in the market as you have $25,000 in your account.

The EUR/USD is the ticker for the euro - dollar currency pair. It represents one of the majors in Forex and since it shows the world’s largest economies and trading amounts, it has the highest levels of liquidity. It is, in fact, the most liquid pair and offers low spreads to traders who wants to choose it as their main trading asset. The logic of the pair is the same as for the other pairs, it shows how much of the second currency it is needed in order to buy one unit of the main currency.
