What is FX

FX or foreign exchange (Forex) is the process of exchanging one currency for another.

For example, swapping the U.S. dollar for the Euro, or Euro to GBP. If you want to exchange Euro for US Dollars, this would be referred to as a currency pair. As Euro is the currency you are exchanging, it is called the base currency. The US Dollar is the currency you are exchanging for and is known as the quote currency.
