It is important to remember that yen it tightly connected with the export level from the country. That is why the relations between the two are so shaky. Even though there is no reason for you to discard USD/JPY. It a celebrity couple for the markets. I can just say that it is not for beginners. It is better to turn to trading it when you have already gained experience.

GBP/USD is a perfect choice for those who prefer fast transactions and fast movements of the price, as with this couple it is what we usually see – sharp and prompt movements of the price.

It is also easy to look out for the possible movements as the monetary relations between the two are super old and whatever can happen in the future has already happened in the past, so it is perfect for learning and gaining experience.

 

4. USD/CHF

Swiss franc has only been gaining popularity in several last decades. But even in this short time is has managed to do what other currencies can’t achieve in the whole course of their history – the status of safe haven. Right now when everything else sinks, CHF stay afloat. It is clear why its pairing with dollar is so popular nowadays.

And here are less popular, but still profitable couples.

 

5. USD/TRY

Turkish lira has come into the attention of traders last years after the conflict between USA and Turkey shook up the national currency and sank it to the lowest level in a long time. But we can look at the dynamic if the currencies now and after the decide whether we want to have any business with them.

 

6. AUD/JPY.

An unusual pairing is gaining more and more attention due to two completely different interest rates between the countries. That makes them so appealing – we can make money simply on playing off interest rates between the currencies.

They are so interesting together, that I guarantee, you are not going to be able to withstand.

 

7. CAD/JPY.

This couple, unlike the previous ones goes well together because both of the currencies have something in common – oil. Canada is one of the biggest exporters of oil in the world and it is not surprising that its exchange rate is fully dependent on the price for the crude.

Of course, other currency couples can also go into this list, but we have stopped on the most popular members of trading society.
