USD (US Dollar)

The US Dollar is the single most popular currency in the world, and is the dominant reserve currency in use around the globe. The USD is often called 'The Greenback' in reference to its green coloring and can often be a favorite vehicle of traders looking to buy assets from or in The United States. When risk aversion runs high, traders will often look to buy US Treasuries, which can create demand for US Dollars.
