The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade any of these markets you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and, therefore, you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading these markets, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any questions or doubts.

Great Britain Pound vs Canadian Dollar •GBPCAD•



The British pound/Canadian Dollar (GBP/CAD) cross currency pair is one of the most actively traded pairs in the world. The pair is a proxy for whatever dynamics are happening in EUR/USD and GBPUSD considering the Canadian dollar is closely linked to the United States. Britain's pound is the 4th most traded currency in the forex exchange market and is regarded as one of the world's key reserve currencies. The Canadian dollar being a commodity currency is heavily reliant on commodity prices notably oil, so any time oil prices go up, the GBP/CAD pair drops as CAD gains ground, and when the oil becomes cheaper, GBP/CAD has an uptrend, as the CAD loses its support.
