Posted October 16, 2009In what has been a pretty poor month for the US dollar, there is more news of another currency that has got the better of it. This time it is the Japanese yen.
Posted October 16, 2009Every now and again we hear news stories that mention the idea of a global currency. This is a single, dominating currency that every single country in the world would eventually use. No more foreign exchange markets, no more trading on a daily basis, and no more famous currencies like the dollars and the pounds and the Euro – yes, even the Euro – would grace our daily lives.
Posted October 16, 2009The US dollar certainly seems to be going through a rough patch at the moment. Even though most currencies have been doing strange things since the recession got underway, the dollar has found it particularly hard going lately.
Posted October 12, 2009Sometimes all we hope for in the currency markets is a rising currency. There could be many reasons for this, but undoubtedly one of the strongest is the fact that some currencies have had a bad time of late.

Posted October 06, 2009It has been known for some time that some US banknotes have traces of the drug cocaine on them when tested for it. Not all of them have the drug present, but the vast majority does.
Posted October 06, 2009The financial news is always full of reports about currencies that are doing badly. It makes for good drama, after all.
Posted October 06, 2009Some currencies just beg to be watched closely virtually all the time. And we can certainly say that of the Canadian dollar.
Posted September 03, 2009It always seems to be the case that you can’t keep the US dollar down. Every time a currency from another country gets a foothold against it, it strikes back and pummels it back into its rightful place again.
Posted September 03, 2009If you have been watching the news or catching it online on one of the many currency related news sites recently, you will have noticed that China has been popping up quite a bit.
