What is an exotic currency Empty What is an exotic currency

Post by nwrichard on Wed Jul 25, 2012 6:14 pm

There seems to be a new buzz word used now. It is "exotic currency" As though this is something magical. I took the liberty to cut and past a couple of websites definitions and examples of exotic currencies to others will not be spellbound when they hear the term, I hope it helps.

from Investopedia:
"Investopedia explains 'Exotic Currency'
Exotics are not considered major currencies because they are not easily traded in a standard brokerage
account. Major currencies include the U.S. dollar, Euro, Canadian
dollar and Swiss franc. Examples of exotic currencies include the Thai
baht, Uruguay peso or Iraqi dinari.

From Onanda :

We receive very few price points (one price point per week
for some currencies) from our data suppliers for some emerging market

The following is a representative list of these exotic currencies. It is not necessarily complete.

  • AFN Afghanistan Afghani
  • AMD Armenian Dram
  • AWG Aruban Florin
  • AZN Azerbaijan New Manat

  • TMT Turkmenistan new Manat
  • TZS Tanzanian Schilling
  • UZS Uzbekistan Som
  • WST Samoan Tala
  • XAF CFA Franc BEAC (1)

  1. CFA Franc BEAC (XAF) is the currency for Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.
  2. CFA Franc BCEAO (XOF) is the currency of Benin, Burkino Faso, Cote D'Ivoire, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo.
  3. You may see the message, "Estimated price based on daily US dollar
    rates." This message is displayed for currency pairs where relatively
    little data is available, and means that the exchange rate for the
    converted currencies was computed from cross rates with the US dollar.

From World Currency Watch :
"Trading Exotic Currencies

The Quickest Way to Grab Profits from Emerging Markets: Currencies.

Right now, the biggest opportunities by far are in the emerging
market currencies (also known in the business as “exotic currencies”).

These are the currencies of countries like Poland, the Czech
Republic, Thailand, South Korea and South Africa, to name just a few.

These countries are a generation or so behind the major developed
economies like the. But they are growing much faster and making up for
lost time with a vengeance.

Take Brazil for example. Just a few decades ago, the country was a
mess. Brazil had very high unemployment rate, hyperinflation, political
instability, you name it.

Today, Brazil has an all-time low unemployment rate, record consumer confidence, and an uncontested thriving economy.

Brazil is not alone. Many other emerging market nations are going
through the same experience. What happened to them? They simply learned
from their past mistakes.

During the 1990s, there was no better place to find economic turmoil
than emerging markets. The Mexican peso crisis in 1994, the Asian crisis
in 1997, and the Russian debt default in 1998 were some of that
decade’s highlights.

Surviving a crisis is a harsh lesson for everyone involved. Naturally
after enduring a crisis, most emerging markets wanted to ensure it
never happened again. So leaders started making some serious reforms.

Today most emerging markets are collecting the fruits of those
reforms. Most are sitting on piles of cash. That’s one of the reasons
most emerging markets recovered so quickly from the recent global
recession especially compared to the big developed nations like the U.S.
and E.U.

In fact, this all creates volatile moves that you can exploit by trading foreign currencies in the $4 trillion spot market.

An Easy Way to Make a Killing, Shorting the Dollar

It’s also amazing how much money is flowing into these emerging
markets. These capital flows are very important to currency traders
because it practically guarantees these countries’ currencies will move
quickly against the dollar.

They create very profitable trends for those who are trading in the
spot market, especially when there’s a well defined trend in the dollar.

As a currency trader, you can simply pair these stronger emerging
market or “exotic” currencies with the U.S. dollar for some decent

During the last weak dollar trend in the summer of 2010, our editor Evaldo Albuquerque helped his Exotic FX Alert subscribers pair the weak dollar with the stronger Mexican peso and Polish zloty for gains of 46% and 108% (among others).

It’s a simple strategy. But it really is as easy as watching where
the capital flows will head next and being ready to jump on these
opportunities in the spot Forex market.

This service is designed to help you trade currencies from the emerging
markets in the spot Forex market. You’ll receive timely
