Instrument description

In the Forex market, the transactions and daily trading volume are dominated by the ‘major currencies’ that includes U.S, Euro. Great British Pound, Japanese Yen, Swiss Francs, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollar, and New Zealand Dollar. The currencies are always traded in pairs and categorized into ‘Major currency pairs,’ ‘Commodity currency pairs,’ and ‘Cross pairs.’

The exchange rate of the Euro against the New Zealand Dollar is shown by EUR/NZD, where EUR is the base currency, and NZD is the quote or counter currency. Although both EUR and NZD are included in the list of major currencies, their pairing is called a ‘cross pair’ and a combination that does not include USD either in the base or quote currency.

Some of the other popular cross pairs that are traded daily in the Forex market and quite significant are EUR/GBP, EUR/JPY, and EUR/CHF. The EUR/NZD indicates the economic and trading relationship between the European Union member states (E.U.) and New Zealand.

The EUR/NZD pair indicates how many New Zealand Dollars will be needed to buy one Euro. For example, the current exchange rate of EUR/NZD is 1.75; it means 1 EUR equals 1.75 NZD; in other words, you would need to pay 1.75 NZD to buy 1 Euro. The currencies such as NZD and AUD are considered as a proxy for the growth of China and have performed relatively well against the Euro in recent years.
