However, for forex traders, this pandemic outbreak is just like any other day of the year, as
trading does not stop. And it is not affected by the lockdown in any part of the world. In fact, it

whether to buy or sell a particular currency pair due to the effect of the coronavirus outbreak on
the economies of the nations spending the currencies.
