Reading the Wall Street Journal
The WSJ web page is dynamic, meaning it changes. That is unnerving if you are trying to find the WSJ currency market column on a daily basis.
If you have problems, please contact me
Here are a few
In the print edition, please read the column called either Forex View or Currency Trading. To find the column
1) go the section of the WSJ print edition called MONEY & INVESTING
2) find the index on the MONEY & INVESTING front page
3) Search the index for Forex View or Currency Trading
Bring the section to class in case we refer to specifics.
You can also use the Wall Street Journal Online Edition to do the reading. In order to find the exact column we will be discussing in class, you have to carefully navigate the WSJ website. The website is updated constantly and for you to read the right column, you have to go to
1) the WSJ home page
2) click on “Today’s Paper”
3) on the top of the page are several tabs, click on the one called MONEY & INVESTING
4) scroll down and find the section called “Currency Trading” (or Foreign Exchange or Forex) click on it
This column is equivalent to the column named Currency Trading or Forex View in the print edition (unfortunately they do not always share the same name)
Print the section and bring it to class for reference.
You may also keep up to date on other interesting international macro articles that are published in the WSJ. The online edition makes this easy.
