Forex Week in Review

Last week saw the final trading session for the week, the month and the quarter from the perspective of these summaries. Much of that time has been pre-occupied with the Greek crisis which seems to have come to a head now.

It is cited as delaying the onset of price inflation which was imminently predicted by some financial commentators in the aftermath of the Great Recession. It is viewedby all as problematic as it is powerful, as vexing as it is valid. Yet, despite its nature and magnitude having been debated for decades between Keynesian and Monetarist economists, monetary velocity is simply a pervasive and damaging myth.
