International Currency Trivia

Jump to last reply

For those of you interested in such things, both the euro and pound have been dropping in recent weeks....

The pound is down to just above $1.50 after spending the last two or so year hovering right around $1.60

The euro is down to just above $1.30 and it too has been falling in recent weeks.

(All this is against the US$ which has also gained a few cents against the Canadian dollar where the currencies had trade at just about par for the last little while with the CAD a tad higher than the USD, right now the CAD is down to $0.974..

Of course, as always, the caveat is that currencies rise and fall in what seems a never ending cycle. But this will make European travel for Americans a little cheaper right now.
