Basically if you have ever been to another country you exchanged your currency for theirs. This rate of exchange changes frequently and is basically what you will be trading whether the price goes up or down when paired with another currency.

When you are ready to make your first investment you should know why your investing at that particular price point for that particular currency pair or pairs (do not guess or just take a chance hoping it works out, even in demo acounts). I say pairs because you might be investing against the USD as a whole as your initial trade.
For instance, today is 8/29/2020 and during the last week of trading the USD was weak for the most part. Most of the currency pairs for the USD had the USD for a loss which means anyone who started the week betting against the USD made significant profit for each currency pair the USD was in. So, if a person invested the same amount of money for each of the currency pairs the dollar was in hoping it to be weak, they still made a pretty big profit because the changes in the currency pairs where the dollar was strong was significantly smaller than the changes of the pairs that had the dollar weak. I believe it to be the result of COVID-19. A weakening dollar as a whole is a result of the world economy not doing so good as a whole since the US Dollar is the main currency for most commodities around the world as mentioned in one of my previous articles forex interest rate trading strategy. COVID-19 is making people and buisnesses save money for the long term to help wait out this unfortunate point in our lives.
