rrrr: “Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.”
mdj : VERY interesting. Replace "foreign currency" with "US dollar".........(Reuters) - Norway's central bank will not purchase any foreign currency for the country's sovereign wealth fund in April and does not expect to do so in the near future, it said on Monday. The central bank, which manages the world's largest sovereign wealth fund, the Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG), frequently converts surplus tax revenues into foreign currency to buy stocks, bonds and real estate.
"Norges Bank's estimates as of March 2014 indicate that there will probably be no need to purchase foreign exchange in the market in the coming months," the bank said in a statement on its website. The bank has made no currency purchases since the end of October, and said it might even have to sell forex in time.
CODreamer: mdj I wonder if that's because they are waiting for the revalue/devalue of certain currencies
NetGlobal: COdreamer, my thoughts too.
