Merk G10 Currencies Monetary Score

Merk Funds has recently released a white paper entitled "G10 Currencies: A Monetary Policy Analysis" where they analyzed G10 currencies and gave a "Merk Monetary Score" to each of those.

The Merk Fiscal Score and a Merk Economic Score are aggregated together with the The Merk Monetary Score into an overall Merk Currency Score

In this 7-page white paper, they explains their methodology and the Merk Monetary Policy Score eventually ranks monetary zones as follows:

  1. Australia
  2. Canada
  3. New Zealand
  4. U.S.
  5. Sweden
  6. Euro Area
  7. Norway
  8. Japan
  9. UK
  10. Switzerland
The best currencies in terms of monetary policy would then be the Australian dollar and the Canadian dollar and the  worst currencies the British pound and the Swiss franc.
