Foreign exchange is a popular topic in the business community these days, as the economy is in flux.
But while the fundamentals of the market have stabilized, the price of gold is still volatile.
There’s always the possibility of a correction.
That’s because gold is traded on a global market.
But it’s also because it’s considered the most valuable asset in the world, and the United States is the world’s leading exporter.
The U.S. and many other countries are trying to reduce their exposure to foreign currency, which makes the market even more volatile.
The International Monetary Fund estimates that $1.4 trillion worth of foreign exchange reserves will be lost over the next decade.
But the real risk for the future is not foreign currency volatility, but the fact that foreign reserves will continue to grow.
“It’s not that the world is going to stop trading in gold,” said Jim Toth, managing director of consulting firm Toth & O’Neill.
“The danger is that gold’s not going to be priced at a certain price.”
That’s where foreign exchange trading comes in.
Traders trade gold for a variety of commodities, including dollars, yen, and other currencies.
The more currencies a country holds, the more it has access to foreign currencies.
“As a currency-denominated asset, gold is a pretty good proxy for what you’ll get in terms of inflation,” Toth said.
“But it doesn’t provide a very good measure of inflation.”
