Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.

Parity definition

The term parity can be used in a few ways when trading, but always as an expression of equality.

The most common use of parity is in the forex market, where it signifies the point where two currencies have an equal value. That would mean that the exchange rate between the two currencies is exactly 1/1.
