Trading platforms allow investors to trade in stock markets. The Stock Exchange is a body that operates in the stock market, where secure transactions are carried out, through continuous public auction mechanisms, and where stock brokers can also carry out other intermediation activities. Trusted brokers are the secure intermediaries that act as members of a stock exchange and can intermediate shares and any other type of securities. They can also trade off the stock market. In stock exchange, the buyer buys a certain share of stock. All the transactions are performed over the counter (OTC). OTC deals involve a wide range of assets – from commodities to financial instruments such as stocks and derivatives. Unlike traditional exchanges, the OTC market is decentralized and has no physical location, and trading is done through dealer networks. Traders are not necessarily directly involved in the process as they may seek help from intermediaries such as brokers or OTC services.

Currency exchange is an operation in which a bill, check, deposit, loan or any other product, financial instrument or means of payment goes from being expressed in a certain currency to being in a different currency. Each country represents the money it owns in a monetary unit. In this world every country has its own currency. Top rated currencies that have stable values are supported by their origins to exchange it into other currencies. Online trading platforms support trading and investing in currency exchanges. In online trading platforms, Banknotes are not considered as currency, as they are not used for transactions in the foreign exchange market (the funds are moved and processed by electronic transfers). In fact, currencies are represented in any means of payment except banknotes. According to the international monetary code or ISO 4217 standard, each currency is represented by a three letter abbreviation (EUR = euro, USD = US dollar, JPY = yen, GBP = pound sterling). Currencies are exchangeable only into available currencies. For example, Dollars, Pounds, Euros and Yens are ones of the most stable and powerful currencies right now. So, the exchange of Dollars to Pounds (USD to GBP) or Pounds to Dollars (GBP to USD) is feasible. 

How currency exchange works?

The exchange rate is the value of one currency against another. The exchange rate of a currency can be fixed or floating.

  • Fixed Currency Rate

A fixed rate is a constant rate, determined in relation to a reference currency (which is generally the US dollar or the euro). This rate is fixed by a decision of the State which issues this currency and can only be modified by a decision of devaluation or revaluation of this State.

  • Floating Currency Rate

A floating rate varies with each transaction depending on the supply and demand of each of the two currencies on the foreign exchange market. Thus, the price of a currency rises whenever demand exceeds supply. The floating exchange rates can vary greatly during the same day, depending on the evolution of the expected interest rates of the different countries, inflation relative anticipation of these countries and other major macroeconomic data.

Exchange rates, which are constantly changing, depend on the supply and demand for currencies in the foreign exchange or Forex market. This facility is provided by an intermediary. The buyer or investor can invest in any of available currency. When the value of currency rises the buyer gets the profit. The different exchange rates are quoted on the foreign exchange or Forex market and vary constantly. The exchange rate between two currencies depends on the supply and demand of each of these two currencies. The exchange rate has direct relation with demand of that currency. If the demand exceeds the supply, the price increases and vice versa.
