Currencies and Strong vs Weak terminology

Note to self:

1. When a currency is labelled as being strong, it means that you get more of the other currency against the currency (eg: US$ is stronger than the Indian Rupee, that would mean you get more rupees per US$).

2. When a currency is labelled as being weak, it means that you get fewer of the other currency against the currency (eg: US$ is weaker than the Indian rupee, that would mean you get fewer rupees per US$).

So in this chart, the US$ has become stronger when compared to the INR (because you getting more INR per $ (INR 63.2/$) today than 52 weeks ago (INR 74.4/$)).

When a currency is stronger than its counterpart, different people benefit: The weaker sides exporters are happier as their exports are cheaper and the stronger sides exporters are less happy as their exports
