On Chocolate and Intervention

An interesting concept in the world forex markets is that of Currency Intervention. That word has been thrown around a lot during this crisis at various parties…the Japanese, the Swiss, the EU, the Swiss again, more recently. So, what is intervention? More importantly, what are it’s effects? Intervention occurs when a party with some power […]

But what does strength mean?

Once I became old enough to understand currencies, it became apparent to me that, from the point of view of the average person, a strong currency is what you want. I guess it kind of tallied with going out to England on holiday. With a stronger currency, there were more video games. With a weaker […]

Bounce…

Recently, faith in the Dollar has been put to the test. There have been doubts about the US and it’s ability to come out of this thing on top…doubts about America’s “AAA” rating. Then the job numbers came out today, and the US Dollar bounced back in style, gaining up to 1.8 % on the […]

Forex for this week…the saga continues

At the start of Monday last week, it was clear the markets were riding high off the new wave of positivity that has captured investors.

The beginning of the end for the Dollar…in the short term anyway

You know the scene I’m thinking about. The one where a former great leader is surrounded by the same people off of whom’s misery he has derived his wealth and power for a long period of time. Now, he lies there, beaten and bloody. Everyone of them wants a piece of him. The poor guy […]

Swine Flu splutters…The Markets love it

First off, I am glad that the global pandemic didn’t quite happen. It was a near thing. I have to admit, I was really worried about it. I had to fly out from one of the New York Airports last weekend. I was suffering from a bout of Hay Fever…which means I was sniffing a […]
