The British pound goes under many different names: the Pound, the Pound Sterling or GBP.

London is an FX hub

The United Kingdom is the world’s largest foreign exchange centre with 36.7% of volumes according to the 2010 survey by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). This underscores London's role as a magnet for financial, institutional and retail Forex investors. However, the Pound is only the fourth largest currency by trading volumes behind the US dollar, the Euro and the Japanese yen.

Trading the GBP/USD

The GBP/USD currency pair is known as "Cable", a reference to the time when bid ask quotes were broadcast between London and New York over trans-Atlantic underwater cables. Cable is prone to sharp price fluctuations despite its relatively large share of global FX trades. This creates opportunities to earn significant amounts of money in a short span of time if you're on the right side of the market. Exchange rate volatility is one of the reasons why Forex brokers typically quote wider spreads across this currency pair.
