Greenback is a slang term used for the “Paper U.S. Dollar”, but traders often use it to refer the USD in forex trading. According to etymology, back in 1861 – 1862, during the American Civil War, the U.S. government issued a currency note printed in green on its back, and since that time, it’s called Greenback.
