IRTA�s Universal Currency Sets All-Time Trading Record 

The Universal Currency Clearinghouse (UC) set multiple, all-time records in 2012. For the first time in its 15-year history, UC surpassed the monthly million-dollar trading mark in December 2012, by posting $1,024,350 in trading activity.

The International Reciprocal Trade Association�s UC also set an all-time trading volume record of 6,525,976 for 2012, besting the prior annual record of 6,035,202 in 2011.

According to Scott Whitmer, UC Committee Chairman and two-time past president of IRTA, UC�s tremendous growth is the work of two dedicated people � UC International Broker Patty Weston and UC Administrator Ron Whitney.  With over 100 participating barter exchanges now involved, the UC trading future looks exceedingly bright.
