Currency pairs

In Forex market, all currencies are traded in pairs which named by two abbreviation of currencies.

AUDUSD represents Aussie dollar against US dollar. The “”Base”” currency is the first currency in the pair. The “”Quote”” currency, or “”counter”” currency is the second currency in the pair. “AUDUSD is currently trading at 1.0200” means 1 AUD ( Base currency) is equal to 1.0200 USD (Quote currency)”

Pip/ Tick

The minimum rate fluctuation is called a point, a pip or a tick.

For currency pairs quoted with 4 decimal points, say AUDUSD, the minimum rate fluctuation is 0.0001

For currency pairs quoted with 2 decimal points, say USDJPY, the minimum rate fluctuation is 0.01
Please be aware that price offegrey by Hantec includes fractional pips. Accordingly, you may see there is an additional decimal place (d.p.) after the smallest floating pip, i.e. the 5th d.p. of AUDUSD and the 3rd d.p. of USDJPY
