    to point out how the rising price of gold over 1 400 per troy ounce indicates a nervousness among global investors about the state of currency markets today Exchange rate volatility is high and the globe s major powers are engaged in a fierce debate over what constitutes fair management of national currencies The dollar and the yuan remain at the heart of the debate and the dialog is complicated by the fact that each nation lays forth its own best interest as the optimal policy for the globe Zoellick also took issue with the description of the current situation as a currency war a phrase coined by Brazilian finance minister Guido Mantega I don t believe we are going to be in a currency war he told a conference in Singapore I think this is an overstated description I have had to deal with real wars in my career so I know what they are and I m sensitive to the use of the term The FT opinion piece helped stimulate demand for gold which some investors see as an alternative to currencies like the dollar and the yen Those are losing favor because central banks are printing new money to help stimulate their economies The dollar s fall from grace brought on by economic weakness in the United States has helped trigger a new debate once again led by Brazil s Mantega about whether the global economy should shift away from using the dollar as a reserve currency and instead employ a basket of currencies which would include emerging market money like the Brazilian real and the Chinese yuan Now is the moment to think about a transition where there would be new currencies that would be the parameters for international trade Mantega said at the G 20 meeting reported Bloomberg News However there are barriers to that idea for one a basket of currencies for international payments would likely result in further dollar devaluation and an increase in the yuan and real which is exactly the opposite of what those nations finance ministers want This threat like many before it may end up being nothing more than a shot across the United States bows Category Industry News Share Foreign Exchange Services for Business With a focus on payment services Western Union Business Solutions enables businesses of all sizes to send funds internationally through our global payment solutions See our available FX payment services Related posts Currency market shifts focus to fundamentals Traders in the currency market are focusing more intently on individual countries economic developm Sony addresses currency risk by shifting production to China In the 1980s the bulk of Sony Corp s products were made in the company s home market of Japan bu Report Yen survives and thrives in global currency markets Remarkably it seems that the value of the Japanese yen has never been higher despite the catastrop Industry News 1486 Media Coverage 305 News Releases 24 Past Events 28 Recent Posts Aussie hovers
