@everetra - I, too, don’t believe that the end is near for currency markets. If anything, it just becomes one more buying opportunity for people who know how to be smart in tough times.
I used to live overseas and I’d watch the currency exchange rates fluctuate on a daily basis. I could buy more of the local currency on one day than I did on the next. That’s as far as I got to treating it like a commodity however.
Later I discovered that there were people who were doing just that, trading the currencies like they were shares of stock. I don’t recommend that you get into that business, but if you know what you’re doing, you can make some money, trading money.
