Reading price ticks

Forex Quote : A Forex quote is the price of one currency in relation to another currency. Everyone knows that Forex prices are quoted in currency pairs. For a transaction to occur we will actually be buying one currency pair and selling the other like if we buy US Dlllars we will pay its price in terms of INR. 

Base currency and Variable currency : As seen earlier, Forex quotes involve two currencies. The First currency is called the Base currency and the variable currency appears second. For instance in the pair EURUSD, Euro is the base currency and US Dollar is the variable currency. So we can see that in a Forex quote the price of the first currency is displayed in units of the second currency. 

Bid Price and the Ask Price : When you are trading Forex with any broker and on any terminal, you will find that two price quotes are available on your trading terminal for any currency pair, one is called the bid or selling price and the other is called the ask or Buying price. The differnce beween the bid and the ask price is the Spread. The spread is the small comission charged by the broker. Take a look at the below example of GBPUSD, GBP is the base currecy and USD is the variable or quote currency.

Sprread : In the above example the difference between the bid and ask price is the spread of GBPUSD. This quote was randomly taken from exness MT4. So in simple tems we often see that the bid price is always lower than the Ask price and this difference is called the spreads or the commission charged by ur broker.  Note that spreads are kept lower for Major currrency pairs, this is due to their high liquidity and trading turnover.
