In the last few years the popularity of trading has increased tremendously. Today people are more informed and have more knowledge on the financial markets. The knowledge is power, so in trading it results in increasing the chances of earning more money. The number of traders increases day by day and this is because of steadily growing popularity of online trading.
However, it should be pointed out that among people who are actively taking part in trading there are many beginners, who are not familiar with the market, with trading in general and sometimes working with them is really very difficult.
It is difficult because without having experience and enough knowledgeon the market they start trading such instruments that are very risky and may cause them lose much money. But because someone has said that it is possible to earn enormous amount of money by trading for example commodities, a trader may make up his mind to trade only commodities without even knowing the possible risks.

And the last important thing about these four currency pairs is that they have very tight and low spreads. Actually, spreads differ from broker to broker and nowadays all Forex brokers offer either fixed or floating spreads to their customers. There are some brokers who offer very low spreads and there are those, who offer comparatively high spreads for these currency pairs. However, in case of good research you will certainly find a broker who provides low spreads for these pairs.
