What is Currency Pairs?

So currency pairs are the foundation of Forex trading they are paired up and then compare.

The first currency in the pair is the base currency and the second currency is the quote currency, or sometimes counter currency.

If it requires buying one unit of the base currency by above-mentioned rate, For example,  GBP / USD = 1.6567  indicates that you can buy one unit of a pound by 1.6567 US dollars.

When selling a currency pair, the exchange rate shows how many units of the quote currency you will receive when selling one unit of the base currency.

The bid price is the rate that your broker is willing to pay for the currency pair, in other words, this is the rate you receive if selling to the market.

The ask price is the rate at which your broker is willing to sell and represents the rate you must pay to buy the currency pair.

The bid price is always less than the ask price because brokers pay less than they receive for the same currency pair.

This difference – known as the spread– is how your broker generates much of its revenue.
