For the purposes of the foreign exchange market, this is viewed as buying euros while selling dollars at the same time. Since two different currencies are always involved in such an exchange the trading of currencies is done in pairs and the pricing of each currency is determined by the exchange rate offered by the dealers operating in the forex market.
