GBP to HKD pair trading

The GBP to HKD pair involves two of the most frequently traded currencies across the world – the British Pound Sterling and the Hong Kong dollar. According to the Bank for International Settlements, the GBP ranks fourth on that list, while the HKD is just outside the top 10 in 13th (2016).

Such a frequency of trade makes the GBP to HKD pair a crucial one for those operating within the global forex market. The GBP to HKD rate is prone to greater fluctuations than the United States dollar to HKD pair – which is pegged by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority – and can therefore be a more volatile option for forex traders.
