How are transactions made in currency pairs?

In the trading terminal you will see two different prices for one currency pair called “BID” and “ASK”.
Since a currency pair can be sold or bought, we must clearly understand these terms:

``BID`` is the price at which we sell the base currency (in our case USD) and buy the quotation currency (in our case it is RUB)

``ASK`` is the price at which we buy the base currency (USD) and sell the quotation currency (RUB)

The difference between the valuable “BID” and “ASK” is called spread (Spread).


The volume of transactions is measured in lots and is very important in trading for each trader. The standard amount of currency that you can buy or sell is 100, 000 – 10,000 – 1000 units of the base currency.

A few years ago, the trader needed to have a fortune in the trading account, but now thanks to the leverage it is not required. The notion of leverage means that you can open deals with larger volumes than you have at your disposal.

For example, in your account 1000 USD and you have chosen a leverage of 1: 500, this means that you can open transactions with a total volume of 500,000 USD

Example of the USD / RUB currency pair transaction:

You predict that the price of the USD / RUB currency pair will increase, it means that the US dollar is growing relative to the Russian rouble, in order to make money on this event you need to open a deal to raise the price of “BUY” for the USD / RUB currency pair, in case you open a position to lower USD / RUB the deal for this pair will be “Sell”.
