I'm not sure if all of them have nicknames or not. We could always create a few, use them here and in other forums, and see if we can get them to catch on.

Thanks pharaoh, can you tell me why is it that the Switzerland symbol is CHF, why not SWF? Isn't it that the first two letters identify the name of the country and the third letter identifies the name of that country’s currency?

Hi,

CH is the international abbreviation for Switzerland (comes from Latin "Confederatio Helvetica")

Nix the n**ja term

USD/JPY = Ninja
Nix the n**ja term
Ninja pronounced Ni-n–ja 3 symbols. It was a derogatory term referencing people considered sub human, death was to honorable a punishment. They were kicked out of society to endure life without social benefits.
