Ok so i'm not sure if i have this in the right section, so if need be please move to correct spot.

I usually go on to look at what the market does really quick. it usually shows index for dow, treasury oil and $/euro. for the past three days however, the index for $/euro is gone. no matter which browser i use, when i first open the page it will show up for a sec and then disapear.

Now i've gone to other sites as well to double check and see what's happening and i've noticed that some of them have move the index far lower on the page, barely noticeable. And the kicker is, i've found a 3cents difference from several sites.

As of today, when i get a glimpse from cnn it shows 1.4899, yahoo shows 1.4689, market watch is at 1.4659, bloomberg shows 1.47.

i know there is a delay from the actual real time trading but how can they all show such differences? why have some of them moved the index? i'm not sure if there's much behind it but i find odd, and to top it off, no one even talks about the current rate, and when they do it's like it doesn't even matter.

I'd like to hear some thoughts from you guys and see what y'all are noticing.

You know, I've been watching this chart:

off and on since someone posted it earlier last night.

Around 5:30 AM Pacific time, it shot up rapidly, and I have no idea why.

Was there some sort of announcement? Buy out? What?

If anyone knows, please enlighten the rest of us, because it seems very weird to me.

Significant world events can easily influence stock markets.

At the end of the day even business is guided by emotion.

Well I'm in Canada, and your dollar is worth this here from a google search:

1 U.S. dollar = 0.965502592 Canadian dollars

It seems to have gone up almost 1 cent since yesterday since it's over 4 cent drop on Monday.

I agree with title of your thread. The US dollar value is actually hidden. Since everything is really created by debt, no net real money ever enters the system.

As for the different quotes, somes sites are just better than others for current information.

well i just find odd that some sites have move the index around, almost kinda like a "don't bother looking, it's not good at all" deal.

Talk of the dollar loosing much of it's value is very much under rated, and to me the fact that sites have a difference of close to 3cents rings a ding. i know some sites are better than other but the supposed information should be coming from only one source and therefore much more accurate than what it is.

The value should actually be much lower than what it is currrently but it cannot be told to the public or it would send devastating shockwave thru not just the nation but the whole world.
