Barclays Introduces New ETN

The field of currency exchange-traded products keeps getting better and better. Only a few years ago, the selection of such products was quite small, and limited to the major currencies (i.e. Dollar, Euro, Yen).

Next came the introduction of riskier currencies, namely those of the so-called emerging markets, such as the Mexican Peso, Brazilian Real, Indian Rupee, and most recently the Chinese Yuan.
