Default Re: Atirox - international brokerage company

Traders refer to currency pair GBP/USD as “cable”. Why is that?

Back in the 1800s, exchange rate between the USD and GBP was transmitted across the Atlantic by a giant steel cable that ran across the ocean floor between the two countries.

We are lucky today that advanced technologies allow us to trade faster and easier.
