Countries Currencies and Symbols

November 21st, 2007 | by Forex Sleuth |

Most countries have their own currency, however as many countries form into large trading blocks a single currency is used across many countries, as with Euroland. However, some countries continue to use their own money, which is sometimes pegged to another stronger currency which makes it stable. If you are trading currencies with your FOREX broker, you will more than likely stick with the few top trading pairs, as they will be the most familiar to you. Even if you do not trade the majority of currencies, which could be very risky, you still may want to know the money that is used in a particular foreign country. You may make a bundle 4x trading and decide to take a vacation with the proceeds, so familiarizing yourself with a local currency is always a plus.
