Base and price currency


In the curriculum the quote convention in the curriculum is P/B but in most cases I see the contrary convention.

On the CME group site we have the convention B/P on and on investopedia (Base Currency) also.

Very confusing

Any idea?

CFA Institute’s convention is the reverse of the real world’s convention.

Alas, there’s nothing you nor I can do about it.
