That what’s revolutionary about Bitcoin isn’t that it’s a currency with no state-backing. What’s revolutionary is that it’s a payments system with no third-party , like a credit card company, standing in between buyers and sellers. See, any time you buy something, it’s a minor leap of faith. You choose to believe that the seller will deliver as promisedand if they don’t, you want your money back. That’s where financial intermediaries like credit card companies and Paypal come in. They make sure buyers and sellers are both trustworthy, and handle any disputes.

Forex – NZD/USD steady after RBNZ comments

The loss in market momentum is backing short-squeeze trading, where the weakest of market positions now becomes fresh fodder in either direction. The EURs ascent in the past couple of trading sessions is a good example of the loss of momentum trading. The single currencys rise, particularly over the past 24-hours, has been guided by where the weakest of shorts have been placing their stop-losses. The markets conviction to add to dominant, current short positions largely depends on expectations for the timing of the Fed taper. After last weeks surprise nonfarm payrolls print, the market has switched its focus from a March 2014 taper to as soon as next month.

Rand Extends Worst Currency Slide This Month Amid Labor Unrest
(NHM) s biggest mine, the National Union of Mineworkers said. Pay talks continue at three other platinum mines that produce more than 70 percent of the worlds output. South Africa needs foreign investment to plug a current-account shortfall that may average 6.5 percent of economic output this year, according to government estimates. The rand remains a victim of poor local fundamentals as well as the mining labor unions, Mohammed Nalla, head of strategic research at Nedbank Group Ltd. (NED) , said in e-mailed comments. Labor disputes do little to instill confidence in the already faltering economy, he said.

Currency Probe: Barclays Traders Suspended
Every time they announce a new exchange rate for a sector, its a devaluation for that segment, Barclays Plc analyst Alejandro Grisanti said today in a telephone interview. In theory, tourists had been using the official rate until now. An official at Venezuelas central bank, who asked not to be identified because she isnt allowed to speak publicly, said she wasnt able to comment when asked when the bank would publish the tourist rate. Bolivar Decline The bolivar has lost almost 70 percent of its value on the black market so far this year, according to rate tracking website dolartoday.com. Maduro has blamed inflation, product shortages and the record gap between the official and black market rates on economic sabotage by political opponents. Non-residents, who will be able to purchase bolivars at the tourist rate at banks in airports and ports, will be able to sell as much as 25 percent of the bolivars they purchased back to central bank upon departing the country, according to the gazette.

We hope relevant countries will work with China to ensure the sound and steady growth of trade relations,” said Chunying. Washington has long accused Beijing of keeping the value of its currency artificially low, giving Chinese companies an unfair advantage over U.S. manufacturers. A lower Chinese currency makes Chinese goods cheaper in the U.S.
