Not all participants, though, are easy to come to terms with. For example, Russia, China, and Brazil have agreed to donate funds, but only in exchange for additional votes in the framework of IMF.

This happened mainly at the expense of the common European currency, which accounts for the lion’s share of the index – some 50%. Apparently, the common European currency keeps on losing value amid disappointing economic figures coming from the Eurozone. At the same time, most traders and investors are anticipating another round of quantitative easing by the ECB in an effort to back the economic recovery in Europe, which is definitely going to exert some downward pressure on the common currency amid the fact that the Fed is about to taper QE3 to the end this month.
