The United Kingdom (U.K.) is the third-largest economy in Europe and its gross domestic product (GDP), at over $2.6 trillion USD, is the seventh largest in the world. Services (especially financial services) by themselves account for a large percentage of the U.K. GDP. Among the various financial centers around the world, the largest amount of foreign exchange trading takes place in the United Kingdom’s London Exchange, even though the pound sterling (GBP) is less widely traded in the market than several other currencies.
