The professional forex traders at GVI have assembled
acomprehensive array of monetary policy indicators for those trying to
anticipate interest rate moves as a factor in exchange rate movements.In
banking, foreign exchange is the buying and selling of actual balances
by financial institutions who daily execute the transfer of substantial
amounts of funds from one currency to another. Interest rates are the
cost of funds that are traded and thus affect the value of one currency
relative to another. It is the role of Central Banks tocontrol the price
of short-term money (e.g. overnight to 3-mo interest rates) via open
market operations and control of the money supply. Central Banks use
monetary policy to control inflation. Almost all central banks target
inflation to one extent to another.
The price of long-term money (e.g. 2-yr to10-yr bonds)
is determined by the marketplace and reflects the outlook of investors
and borrowers for economic growth and inflation in the long term.

real (inflation adjusted) yields, rather than the currencies with
thehighest nominal returns.
