Corporations

Giant multinational corporations—Toyota, GE, BMW—are by default huge players in the currency markets. When an American buys a Japanese car or when a Japanese watches an American film, each purchase has to be translated back into the home country's currency and reported on that company's balance sheets. This makes corporations especially interested in currency fluctuations. Growth in revenues or profits could be flattened if a country's currency is falling.

Corporations can also influence currency fluctuations, when they put billions of dollars worth of currencies on the market to be bought or sold.
