Interesting facts about the US dollar, learning the tips and tricks of the foreign exchange market

The US dollar is not only the most popular currency of the world, but also the main component of most currency pairs in the Forex market.

1.Fact the first. The US currency is an American dollar, very similar to a promissory note, more precisely a receipt. Issued receipts in the Fed, this organization, which is called the Federal Reserve System. This organization belongs to the number of private, and the buyers of the dollar private companies, individuals, countries and holdings affect the dollar exchange rate, the increase in demand for the currency and strengthening its positions.

It was issued and was in circulation until 1945, and then it was stopped, and in 1969, the head of state Nixon imposed a final ban on the issue and seized a bill from the financial turnover.

3. Despite such restrictions, to a 100-thousand banknote, by and large, it has a certain solvency. But paper notes, which were issued in Massachusetts in 1960, have no power at that time, America was not an independent country, and in its modern territory there were colonies.

4. The design of the dollar, which we all know well, was developed in the 1920s, and was standardized in 1929. The appearance of the currency has an explanation, a portrait on the front and a monument on the back is compliance with strict requirements on the part of the authorities.

5. Military needs contributed to the rapid increase in the popularity of the US currency. The dollar is a currency of a military nature, which confidently entered into circulation only at the stage of the Civil War. But the banknotes in circulation were sorely lacking, the citizens lacked money, and the release of new ones, during the war, completely died down.

8. Practically on any bill of dollars, due to expertise, traces of the cocaine drug will be found. Vendors of "poison" always conclude transactions in currency, and receive payment "green".

9. Bills themselves bills, made of thread: it's cotton and flax, and not paper, as we all are confident.

10. Dollar bills have a very high resistance. To damage or tear up paper money, you need to make great efforts.

11. On the basis of the demand for dollar notes, the average indicator for the turnover time is calculated. That is, for example, 1 dollar is in circulation for about two years (22 months), 5 dollars - 24 months, and 10 - 18 months. 20 dollars can last us 25 months, and 50 bucks, as long as 55 months, well, 100 dollars, beats all records: 5 years of active use.

13. Despite the equality of rights, the portraits of African-American personalities were never depicted on dollars.

14. The color of the dollar is green, but what does it have to do with it? The origins date back to the distant 1869, when the US Treasury, signed a contract with a company in Philadelphia, to produce a special paper for "money." Money papers were issued with watermarks, barely discernible strips, of small width.

At the same time, the US Treasury, for the first time, produces dollars, using green paint when manufacturing. This change was explained by the appearance of the photo, and the green dye, which already was, could be used in large volumes, and new ones simply can not be bought.

But a stable green dollar color appeared already in 1929. In addition to the cheapness of such green colors, the color was stable and liked the inhabitants of the United States, causing good emotions.

But after a century, dollar bills again differ in yellow and pink shades.

The US dollar is not only a well-known and the most unique world currency, with its history and currency characteristics, but also a powerful financial instrument that influences not only the world economy, but also other market currencies.
