LONDON--()--With the status of the world’s largest currencies a huge topic for debate around the globe, Bloomberg is bringing together leading foreign-exchange strategists and financial analysts to discuss the key issues around the pound, dollar and yen at the Bloomberg #FXDEBATES, convened in association with Saxo Capital Markets.
“Volumes and volatility in the FX market have increased significantly in the early part of 2013. Clearly, this trend creates exciting trading opportunities, particularly as talks of currency wars are intensifying.”
The conference will take place on 13 March, 2013 at the British Museum in London. Speakers will discuss a variety of topics affecting currencies over the next twelve months including interest rate changes, roles and responsibilities around foreign exchange, who’s winning currency wars and the regulatory challenges moving forwards. They will also debate the key issues around the gold market and take a look at the opportunities for emerging market currencies.
“Through a series of panel discussions, leading strategists and currency investment specialists will provide insights on foreign exchange trends and issues that will affect us all in 2013, as well as strategies for places to invest,” said Robert Bierman, head of Bloomberg LINK. "We have created what will be a compelling series of debates about the issues on the minds of FX investors."
Torben Kaaber, CEO of Saxo Capital Markets, comments: “Volumes and volatility in the FX market have increased significantly in the early part of 2013. Clearly, this trend creates exciting trading opportunities, particularly as talks of currency wars are intensifying.”
