When one order of one side (ask or bid) is matched with another order on the opposite side (bid or ask), the matching results in one or more executions. Executions can be either BUY or SELL, depending on the side of the trader.

Transactions are the flows of funds resulted from trading activities and deposits/withdrawals, and go from one currency account to another or from one currency account to external (out of the exchange).
