LAW OF DEMAND: The inverse relationship between demand price and the quantity demanded, ceteris paribus. This fundamental economic principle indicates that as the price of a commodity decreases, then the quantity of the commodity that buyers are able and willing to purchase in a given period of time, if other factors are held constant, increases. This law is incredibly important to the study of economics. If you compiled a top ten list of economically important laws, the law of demand would be right there at the top.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKET

A market that trades the currencies of different countries. The foreign exchange market is actually a series of different markets, each exchanging the currency of one nation for that of another nation. A foreign exchange market sets the price of one currency in terms of the other; a price termed the foreign exchange rate, or simply exchange rate. The impact of government exchange rate policies, including fixed exchange rates, flexible exchange rates, and managed flexible exchange rates, can be illustrated using the foreign exchange market.
