“Emerging Markets Face New Tests: Riding the Wave”

“Emerging market countries that let their currencies float down during the financial crisis are seeing them float up now.”

Graphs in this article shows the cumulative change from the beginning of 2007 though the 3rd quater of 2009 in weekly data for the strength of the following currencies: The Brazilian real, the Indonesian rupiah, the South Korean won, the Polish zloty and the Chinese yuan.

Surfers ride waves, but apparently so do currencies.
