  1. Below I have some tickers and what the currency they represent. I need a one or two word description of the "United States Dollar ", "Japanese Yen" part.

    Euro (EUR)
    United States Dollar (USD)
    Canadian Dollar (CAD)
    Japanese Yen (JPY)
    British Pound (GBP)
    Australian Dollar (AUD)

    The USD, JPY, EUR etc. can be described as "Ticker" or "Ticker Symbol" but I can't figure out how to name the other part in one or two words maximum.
  2. Currency?
    Traded Currency?
    Currency Name?
    National Currency?
    Quote Currency?
    Currency Denomination?
  3. "Pair", "Currency Pair"?
  4. OK ..... Thanks for the quick replies. I think I will go with: Currency or Currency Name.
