How To Buy and Sell Forex Pairs

The first currency is the base currency. The second currency is the settlement currency.

E.g. for the USD/SGD pair:

If you wanted to obtain Singapore Dollars (SGD), you would SELL the USD/SGD pair.

If you wanted to obtain United State Dollars (USD), you would BUY the USD/SGD pair.

In forex trading and in brokers such as Interactive Brokers, this would be the way you’d convert from one currency to another.
