Dollar to Thai Baht exchange

Is anyone else currently watching the exchange rates between the dollar at the baht? I've watched the dollar get stronger almost by the hour. I have an icon on my computer desktop sidebar (at home.. I'm at the office right now) that tells me the current rate. It is changing quite rapidly (although the overall improvement isn't a whole lot)...

I saw an exchange rate of 31.3 on my last trip, and am now seeing 33.8, at last check. Good news for the dollar. I doubt we'll see the 40-41 baht to the dollar that I saw on my first couple of trips over.

Yes, I have been looking at the euro and the Swiss Franc as we will be in Europe later on in the year (just before going back to BKK for the holidays). I hope this trend continues. Would love to see a stronger dollar!

Please don't cheer too loudly--for the sake of some of the rest of us. The Canadian dollar is down to 93 cents against the US dollar, from a high of $1.08 earlier in the year. Right now we're at 31.58 baht per $Cdn. On the other hand, I'm glad to see that Americans are at last feeling good about something--it's high time and I hope for more reasons to celebrate.

Sorry, WillJame... didn't mean to shout too loudly...

The dollar/baht seems to have settled in at 33.75. I was hoping it would continue a little higher, say 34.0. But I'll take what I can get.

Oh, no, Carol, you weren't shouting at all, and I understood your cheering. In my usual ironic vein, I was just wanting to indicate that when the US dollar increases in value against other currencies, it's not universally beneficial.
Cheers, Will

Not to gloat, but the dollar is also quite a bit better against the euro right now. The Swiss Franc is another currency I watch regularly, and it's getting better (not yet what it used to be when I first began my many trips to Switzerland)... I'll keep watching, but I promise not to be too excited about the news!! lol
