Powers rise and fall. With regularity, we find ways to try and stay on top. Fortunately for you, a long time ago people started to study power and some of the components of what makes it work. One of the ways is currency.

In this Knowledge to Action infographic, we learn about the Forex Market, from its “humble beginnings” to its’ incredible success today.

As early as the 7th Century, metal coins became the physical means of making transactions. Flash-forward to 1879, the U.S. used what was known as the Gold Standard and Bretton Woods as a way of making sure prices were relative to that of another currency. However, they came to be seen as inefficient and ended in 1971.

The system adapts to whichever currency is worth the most and encourages the trading of other currency. Knowledge to Action finds that as much as $5.3 trillion can be traded daily. This is far more than what Wall Street can do in a month!
