Exchange Market

...FOREIGN EXHANGE MARKET The foreign exchange market (forex, FX, or currency market) is a global, worldwide decentralized financial market for trading currencies. Financial centers around the world function as anchors of trading between a wide range of different types of buyers and sellers around the clock, with the exception of weekends. The foreign exchange market determines the relative values of different currencies. The primary purpose of the foreign exchange is to assist international trade and investment, by allowing businesses to convert one currency to another currency. For example, it permits a US business to import British goods and pay Pound Sterling, even though the business' income is in US dollars. It also supports direct speculation in the value of currencies, and the carry trade, speculation on the change in interest rates in two currencies. About 70% to 90% of the foreign exchange transactions are speculative. In other words, the person or institution that bought or sold the currency has no plan to actually take delivery of the currency in the end; rather, they were solely speculating on the movement of that particular currency for a profit. The foreign exchange market facilitates international trade. These markets have no physical form. They exist through a sophisticated network of communications involving telephone, telex and computer links. The markets in different countries are closely associated. The foreign exchange market is unique because of •......

Foriegn Exchange export goods sold and bonds sold) exceed uses of funds (such as paying for imported goods and paying for foreign bonds purchased) by that amount. There is said to be a balance of payments deficit (the balance of payments is said to be negative) if the former are less than the latter. Under a fixed exchange rate system, the central bank accommodates those flows by buying up any net inflow of funds into the country or by providing foreign currency funds to the foreign exchange market to match any international outflow of funds, thus preventing the funds flows from affecting the exchange rate between the country's currency and other currencies. Then the net change per year in the central bank's foreign exchange reserves is sometimes called the balance of payments surplus or deficit. Alternatives to a fixed exchange rate system include a managed float where some changes of exchange rates are allowed, or at the other extreme a purelyfloating exchange rate (also known as a purely flexible exchange rate). With a pure float the central bank does not intervene at all to protect or devalue its currency, allowing the rate to be set by the market, and the central bank's foreign exchange reserves do not change. Historically there have been different approaches to the question of how or even whether to eliminate current account or trade imbalances. With record trade imbalances held up as one of the contributing factors to the financial crisis of 2007–2010, plans to address global......

Exchange Rate

...Abstract INTRODUCTION When first looking at an exchange rates, and foreign exchange, there are a few questions which must be considered. What factors affect the demand and supply of Australian dollars in the foreign exchange markets? Distinguish between the possible causes and effects of currency depreciation and a currency appreciation on the Australian economy. What forces have come into play, if any, in the past few years that have affected the value of the Australian dollar? In addition to looking further into those questions, it is helpful to know what the word Exchange Rate means; it is defined as, “The rate at which one unit of domestic currency is exchanged for a given amount of foreign currency.”  A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR Until 1971, the Australian dollar (AUD) was “pegged” to the British pound. This meant that the AUD rose or fell in line with the pound. In 1971, the AUD became pegged to the US dollar instead. These currencies were fixed currencies, which meant that the Australian currency would only change value when a major world currency also changed. This system lasted only until 1974 when the AUD became pegged to a trade-weighted selection of other currencies. This was still a fixed currency. In 1976 this selection of currencies became moveable. Small shifts were able to take place when needed. In 1983 the AUD became a floating currency. This means that the value of the dollar is determined by supply and demand. Initially, the......

Exchange on Information

...EXCHANGE ON INFORMATION AND ITS AD 1. BRIEF OVERVIEW ON NEED OF EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION & ITS MEANING: 1.1 With the increase in cross border transactions in the era of globalised world there has been increase in the number of cases tax evasion & avoidance. The problem of tax evasion in developing countries is therefore exacerbated, where evasion even by a wealthy few can have a comparatively large impact. The revenue needs of developing countries, in combination with the severity of corruption, tax evasion and fraud in many developing countries, highlight the importance of increasing global transparency concerning the location of untaxed wealth. Globalization and the liberalization of economic activity, resulting in the exponential increase in cross border commercial and financial transactions, has in effect converted the private sector into a world without borders. This has created a major problem for national tax authorities because globalization in the private sector has not been accompanied by similar changes in the reach and enforcement powers of national tax authorities. 1.2 In confronting the impact of globalization and liberalization of economies, national tax authorities face several problems. Some of them are...
