GREAT BRITAIN POUND/ NEW ZEALAND DOLLAR TRADING
The GBP/NZD currency pair unites 2 of the world's most traded currencies. The Great Britain pound is the 4th most traded currency globally, and the New Zealand dollar is 10th. The GBP/NZD pair is commonly known as the "Kiwi" and is an example of a cross-currency pairing. It means that these 2 currencies can be traded directly without being converted into USD first. Since GBP/NZD can be prone to volatility and experience significant rate fluctuations, the pair can offer large potential for speculation.
Additionally, it can be a great alternative for experienced traders looking to diversify away from forex majors.
