A woman wears a home-made dress featuring imitation 100 and 500 euro notes as she walks in Bordeaux, southwestern France, November 7, 2014. The look-alike currency notes, printed on individual pieces of fabric and sewn together to complete the dress were also used in other projects by the creator including tabelcloths. A year-long investigation into allegations of collusion and manipulation by global currency traders is set to come to a head on Wednesday, with Britain’s financial regulator and six big banks expected to agree a settlement involving around $2.38 billion in fines. The settlement comes amid a revival of long-dormant volatility on the foreign exchanges, where a steady rise of U.S. dollar this year has depressed oil prices and the currencies of many commodity exporters such as Russia’s rouble, Brazil’s real and Nigeria’s naira – setting the scene for more turbulence on world financial markets in 2015.
