Welcome to the WALLSTREETBEAR Forum Currencies Page
Here you can find some of the best links on currencies. Contrary to popular opinion "cash ain't trash" in a bear market. From 1990 to 2001 cash in Japan appreciated 300% in relation to how much stock it could buy (CTC p. 163). So don't get caught saying, "If I hadn't lost everything I'd be buying right now."
Then again, there are bears who hold that we are now the largest debtor nation in the world and also on a floating currency, not a gold standard. Structural deflation? Absolutely! Paper currency denominated assets appreciating in value? NO WAY!
Take your pick. Either way the links below supply you with applicable data.
