Why are the highest volume exchanges for the US dollar?  I would have expected some of the European currency exchanges to be trading at high volumes as well.  Would mtgox USD be at around 4k if it weren't for the high frequency trades?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

MtGoxUSD is where the action is. Most europeans are willing to pay the conversion fee just to trade in the market with the greatest volume. That is the same reason why the other exchanges don't have much volume.
