Test Objectives for Currency values

In these days you often see visually pleasing currency fields that in past just had simple numeric field validation. Now a days you can add usually currency symbol, thousand delimiters etc. All these add extra TestObjective possibilities for Exploratory testers to hit and see what happens. Again this is an area where end users just expect it to work, you don’t want to see a big fat error message in case you added $ symbol to the amount..

Below is a list of Test Objectives for currency fields you can test:
