What is the exchange rate?
An exchange rate is the value of one currency in relation to another. Indeed, a currency, by definition, does not have an absolute value, but a value relative to another currency. Then we talk about currency parities. The exchange rate or currency quote in the Forex market constantly fluctuates depending on supply and demand. Expressed up to 4 decimal places. The last decimal place is called "pip" in currency jargon.
Let's take an example, our table shows a quote of 1.3752 for EUR/USD parity, i.e. parity of the euro against the US dollar. This means that currently 1 euro is equal to 1.3752 US dollars.
Exchange rates for various currencies are updated automatically every minute. For more information, you can also refer to the candlestick chart of each parity in the D1 time frame. This means that each candle corresponds to the evolution of the price in 24 hours. You also have access to technical video analysis conducted by a financial expert to inform you about future trends in major currency parities. If you want to exchange currencies for the purpose of trading, you also have access to an online broker or a broker offering the lowest spreads (commissions) for each of the parities.

In some cases, exchange rates are set by governments, which is common in most underdeveloped or developing countries, this is called fixed rates. We can, for example, take the yuan, the currency of China, as an example. On the other hand, major currencies, which are referred to as major currencies, have floating rates. They fluctuate depending on supply and demand in the global Forex market.
