Heightened volatility has brought a wave of new traders into the trading markets, as well as revived interest in previously dormant investors. However, when the threat of COVID-19 subsides and volatility leaves the major currency pairs, could emerging market currencies keep traders in FX for longer?
Emerging market currencies are known for their volatile nature, regardless of COVID-19, and although the smaller currencies have liquidity issues and other unique traits, for traders who are looking for volatility, are EM currencies the answer?
Market analysts weight in on emerging market currencies
Next week, we’ll speak with top market analysts from around the world to discuss the far-reaching impact of COVID-19 on emerging market currencies and the economies they represent, and the interesting opportunity they present for the foreign exchange industry.
