Currency exchange rate today
Calling all property-buyers! Today’s £/€ exchange rate is more favourable for people transferring pounds than it has been for nearly two years, so if you’ll need to make a euro payment to complete your overseas purchase in the near future, or you’re emigrating, you time to take action is NOW.
At the end of April, the pound reached a 22-month high against the euro. You’ll probably have seen in the news that at one point last week £1 was worth as much as €1.226 – compare this to a year ago when on May 3, 2011 the rate was £1/€1.115. And anyone buying in Florida will welcome the news that the pound has also strengthened against the dollar – the £1/$1.63 rate at the end of April was an eight-month high for the pound.
While these rates are interbank rates, meaning they’re not available to the man in the street, they give an indication of what you will be offered by a currency exchange specialist when you need to make an overseas currency transfer. How many pounds you’ll need to send from your UK bank account to credit your overseas account with a set amount of euros will vary with the exchange rate you get – the better the rate, the less it’ll cost you in pounds.

Yeah, I know I can look up the conversion elsewhere and do the conversion that way, but want to use the conversion tool if possible.
It swings...2003-12-30 21:03:26 by already_crushed
Yes, it may be a pendulum. Yes, the shift in the dollar may make labor in this country more viable, but there is one problem. Currencies like the Chinese Yuan and some Latin American currentcies are pegged to the dollar which means that the goods will cost the same in nominal dollars.
There is also the problem of inertia. A hot economy can slow down a lot faster than a slow or stagnant economy can pick up steam. There is also a sociological factor to take into consideration when an economy falters. There will be panic and an effect to society which will have consequences for a recovery or future sustainability. If the pendulum swings to far then it may break the glass as it were.
The US has been an engine for the world economy, yes. The US imports a lot, yes. The issue,...
