We all hear this word at least a few times during the day. It’s a short one, starts with “c” and ends in “risis.”

It’s a word that has the power to change the world and can be found throughout history. This time, everything started with the collapse of the debt crises in the US, which led to financial problems for the rest of the world and a tremendous collapse of the global growth. Will the euro break up? Will the US dollar keep its reserve currency role during the upcoming decade? Why is the Japanese Yen weak after the last Bank of Japan intervention?

These are only a few questions on which we will focus during this Virtual Master Class, as its topic will be the foreign exchange market.
