In forex trading, the object of trade is still the same, namely money. But what you are trading is a contract based on the value of a currency. Simply put, when you make a transaction in a certain currency, it is as if you were buying the “shares” of that country. The movement in the value of the country’s currency is an indirect illustration of market sentiment on the country’s economy. In forex trading, there are several currencies which are referred to as “major currencies”.
Major currencies are currencies owned by developed countries that are widely traded on world financial markets.
