Nearly everything you've heard about China's currency, the yuan, is dead wrong. It's not undervalued and it's not undercutting the U.S. dollar as the financial press and politicians like to point out. I'll show you why.
You likely heard that China recently reported it had grown just 7.5 percent in the second quarter of 2013, the lowest level in over three years.
What you likely don't know is, more than half of that growth came from wasteful infrastructure and property investments, such as this:
The Best Currencies to Invest in for 2013
Currency markets in the first half of 2013 have been roiled by central bankers' delusional efforts to prop up their lackluster economies.

How to Profit From the Currency War

Is Japan About to Fire the First Shots in a 1930s Style Currency War?
Chances are you've heard about the so-called "race to the bottom" in which various industrialized nations are gradually allowing their currencies to depreciate in an attempt to maintain competitive parity.
Forget about it...the real risk right now is an all-out 1930s-style currency war. I know it's not front-page news yet, but I have a sneaking suspicion it will be shortly.
It's going to blindside Washington and most of Europe, where central bankers, politicians, and more than a few economists fail to recognize...
The Three Must-Own Currencies of 2012
If 2011 taught us one thing, it's that currency investing can be a dangerous business.

Two Ways To Add Income to Your Portfolio as a Currency Investor
For the past 30 years, my grandfather has been living the retirement dream, thanks to a few strategic stock plays.
Here's the interesting part: My grandfather never knew a thing about stocks. He didn't know how to value them, or when to buy and sell.
But he did know the power of income.
