MTI IN THE NEWS
Article by Chris Pulver published in FX Trader Magazine July – September 2014 Issue.
By now you have most likely heard of FATCA or the HR 2847 bill out of the United States. It went into full effect July 1, 2014 and the overhanging question is will it create a domino effect of changes within the U.S. dollar and its currency counterparts? Is this a real scare or the Y2K phenomenon of the currency wars?
The goal for eager investors amid this highly speculated situation will be to prepare for money-making opportunities no matter how the actual bill affects the USD (be it positive or negative).
