To start trading forex, you’ll need to get to know a few key concepts and terms. Let’s take a look at each in turn.
When trading currencies, you are trading currency pairs. That means when you buy one currency, you do so by selling another. And when you sell one currency, you do so by buying another.
When you buy EUR/USD, for example, you're buying the euro while selling the US dollar.
The two currencies in a pair are known as the base and the quote.

  • The base is the first currency. In EUR/USD, it is the euro.
  • The quote is the second currency. In EUR/USD, it is the dollar.

The first step to opening a forex trade is to decide which currency pair you wish to trade. There are over 99 to choose from with RubyFinance.
Then you have to decide, whether to go long or short, in other words, to sell or to buy.

a currency pair if you believe that the base currency will strengthen against the quote currency, or the quote currency will weaken against the base currency.
This is a long position, so your profits will rise if the currency pair’s value rises.
However, for every point the pair falls below your open level, you will incur a loss.
a currency pair if you believe that the value of the currency pair will decrease – meaning the base currency will weaken in value against the quote currency, or the quote currency will strengthen against the base currency.
This is a short position, so your profits will rise if the pair’s price falls.
However, for every point the pair rises above your open level, you will incur a loss.

Owning shares means that you own a piece of that company and as such, you are entitled to your share of the company’s earnings as well as any voting rights attached to the stock.
If you believe that a share such as Netflix will rise in price, you can place a buy trade. If the prices rise, you will make a profit for every point that Netflix moves up. If the market falls, then you will make a loss for every point the share price moves against you. Our trading platform tells you in real-time how much profit or loss you are making.
You can also trade on a falling share price. If you think Netflix will fall in price, you sell to open the trade. Your position will stay open as long as you want it to, providing you have enough money in your account to cover the margin required to keep your trade open.
With RubyFinance you can trade global shares as a Spread Bet or CFD.
Shares can be bought or sold on a stock exchange, via a broker. Well known stock exchanges include the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), London Stock Exchange (LSE) and NASDAQ.

Indices are a measurement of the performance of a group of shares that are listed on an exchange. Because there is no underlying physical asset to exchange when trading indices, most indices trading is done with financial derivatives like CFDs.
For example, the FTSE 100 tracks the 100 largest companies on the London Stock Exchange. Trading indices enables you to get exposure to an entire economy or sector at once, while only having to open a single position.
You can speculate on the price of indices rising or falling without taking ownership of the underlying asset with CFDs. Indices are a highly liquid market to trade, and with more trading hours than most other markets, you can receive longer exposure to potential opportunities.
Hedge against increasing volatility in your share portfolio or on your existing leveraged stock positions.
