The currency pair will appear on the forex quote at the top-left side, and the left currency is the quote currency, while the currency on the right side is the base currency.

A Forex broker usually facilitates forex trading in behalf of a client/trader, with the corresponding currency pair of his choice. The forex broker passes the clients orders to the Interbank Market partner, whether to buy, sell or stay and credits any losses or gains to the account. This can be done in a matter of few seconds with just a click of the mouse, thanks to the Internet and computers.

Operating in a 24 hour period, it opens on a Sunday evening in Australia and closes on Friday in New York.

With this set up, forex trade offers its market players the chance to make transfers of larger amounts of money with little effect on its price. With such freedom, traders can choose to trade with whatever currency they choose to, if the opportunity to gain profits from it presents
