Pip – Any change in the rate of the currency pair is shown as its pip value.

Bid Price – It is the price at which you can sell the currency pair in the currency trading market. It tells you the price at which you can buy one unit of base currency using your quote currency.

Ask Price – It is the best price a trader can offer you for a currency pair at that particular time. Again, this is price you will receive in quote currency for one unit of base currency. 

Base Currency and Quote Currency – In a currency pair, the first listed currency is the base currency and the second listed currency is the quote currency. In a EUR/USD currency pair, EUR is the base currency and USD is the quote currency. EUR is the currency to be exchanged for USD at a particular price at a particular time (the current time) in the market. 

When you buy a currency pair at the currency trading market, you buy some units of both the currencies in the pair. To understand the market, practice forex trading through simulation games.

Educate yourself by learning the terms related to the basics of currency trading. 

In the beginning, invest small amounts and focus on a single currency pair. With time you will understand how the forex market works. The currencies are also affected by the impact of local and global events. Try to understand how these events affect the currency pairs that you are interested in investing in.
