List of World Currencies – Money. We all need that. We all want it. Trillions of dollars, pesos, euros, pounds, leva, francs and more exchange hands for goods and services around the world every day. Most of us only know money exchanged for goods and services in our own country and are only interested in getting more.
But there is much more to money than that. What is the relationship between your country’s currency and another country’s currency and why should it matter to me? I’m glad you asked. In this article, we’ll explore some of the world’s currencies and answer some questions you didn’t even know you had.
Currency and its relationship with other currency
First of all, if we are going to discuss currency and its relationship with other currency, we should talk about Forex. This is an abbreviation for foreign exchange or another type of currency.
There is no other market in the world, including Wallstreet, that compares to Forex in terms of the volume of cash traded daily. Retailers, governments, currency speculators, banks, corporations and other financial institutions trade trillions of dollars in currency or foreign currency and other currency settings every day.
That’s really cool to see. People who make money simply by exchanging one country’s currency for another country’s currency. Keeping up to date with the latest news, economic trends and indicators from each country, real-time monitoring of current currency values against another currency is all you need if you are going to speculate in this area.
Moreover, some forex speculators will tell you, you have to have a good stock for it. You need to understand the economics and be able to recognize the events and conditions that will cause people to lose confidence in a currency. Like the Kenny Rogers song, you have to know when to hold them and when to pass.
