What You Need To Know About Trading Forex Exotic Pairs

The FX market is by far and away the largest market in the world. At over $5 trillion traded on a daily basis this by far supersedes the daily volume of the NYSE and all other global major markets combined. Most people that are trading the FX market are most familiar with what are referred to as the major currency pairs. Pairs like the EURUSD and the USDJPY offer traders excellent liquidity throughout the various trading sessions. Many of the automated trading systems that are out there are designed with the major currency Paris in mind.

Until recently traders would not even think to consider trading some of the forex exotic pairs as well. Forex brokers have begun to offer these pairs and they are offered with deep liquidity and can expand a trader's opportunity instead of just being limited to 4 or 5 pairs that most of the other traders are looking at as well.

One would think that it would make perfect sense to incorporate some of the fastest-growing economies and their currencies into one's trading strategy. Countries like China and India have seen growth in recent years. The respective currencies the Yuan and the Rupee have seen dramatic increases in terms of volume traded.
