Traders make the most money when they're trading the most effective currency pairs. Why? Because these are the monies that have most impact on global trade. 

For instance, the CAD/CHF has become the top currency pair most influenced by the Swiss franc's recent rise. 

Because CHF is so popular with international traders, its strength has helped it gain ground against the USD.


Japanese Yen effect 

However, 1 currency that has little effect on commerce is the Japanese Yen. This has had a slight impact on the exchange rates of Japan and the rest of Asia. 

The CHF/JPY is less important for most traders than the CAD/USD or the CAD/CAD. However, a strong Japanese Yen could cause difficulties for exporters to obtain goods in the region. 

This is because most Asian countries don't accept the Japanese Yen as payment for their exports.

Special Tax rule for using Yen : 

One more fun fact about this popular traded currency in the world is that the government of Japan issues a special tax for men and women that use the yen. 


Yen bank reserved

This tax is known as the"Yen Bank Reserve" and has been used by the government of Japan as an effective method of keeping their currency stable. 

The reason why they have issued this tax is to maintain the interest rates from rising too high. Interest rates tend to be negatively correlated with market movements. 

If the interest rates rise, so does the yen and when that happens, so does the cost of doing business in Japan.
