The Forex market focuses on the trade of currencies by both large investment banks and individuals around the world. Trading can be done in nearly all currencies, however, a small group known as the 'majors' is used in most trades. These currencies are the U.S. dollar, the euro, the British pound, the Japanese yen, the Swiss franc, the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar. All currencies are quoted in currency pairs. Traders look to make a profit by betting that a currency's value will either appreciate or depreciate against another currency.
