The Gold Standard

The Forex market actually began with the first international gold standard in 1875. At that time, every major economic power priced an ounce of gold at a certain number of their currency's units. This made it far easier for countries to trade among themselves without having endless bartering sessions, or even wars, to settle the trades.

Countries tended to go on and off the gold standard through the early 20th century and into the world wars until, after World War II, the final attempt at a gold standard appeared: the Bretton Woods System. This system used gold to trade between nations with currencies basing themselves off of an ounce of gold.

It Couldn't Last

Unfortunately, even the Bretton Woods system of the gold standard proved impossible to support. Some countries are more efficient producers than others, and the resulting imbalances in trade made the gold standard unfavorable to less productive countries. A nation needs a lot of gold to support such a standard, and a trade deficit could drain the national coffers dry in a short time. Most of the world's economies had left the various types of gold standard behind shortly after the second World War ended, and the United States finally overturned the Bretton Woods Act in 1971....
