That's because I went to Europe in May, when it was $1.56.

It may soon crack the psychologically important $1.45 level....

Now there are folks here who were predicting not too long ago the euro was heading for $1.75

Just goes to show nobody knows. (not even logos)

Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel in Iraq and the potential postitive impact on the US deficit, as well as deterioration of the economic state in Europe might help reverse the dollar slide. Keeping fingers crossed.

Especially heartening for those who had moved their IRA's out of int'l funds into US money markets a few months ago

It has actually recently been lower I believe.
Don't forget that a lower Euro results in higher fuel prices - all of which you will pay for in higher train fares, gas prices and fuel surcharges, and even in higher hotel bills as heating fuels and foodstuffs increase in price - not only due to the lower Euro but due to the Russia/Georgia thing.

I'm glad I went to the US in May though

Don't have time right now for you!

Anybody know if the 5 days KR Korean railpass can be purchased even if the arrival date is only 4 days after ordering the voucher? I'm not planning to use it from the first day anyway.

Anyway. I'll try.

I just ordered, pre-dating the voucher so any advice now comes too late ;-). Does it work? Who knows.

Now back to the subject, the crashing USD!

I sure hope it keeps coming down. We are thinking of going back over to Germany and France for Christmas. A better exchange sure would help. Jenn

The USD is still very weak, but has started to gain strength after the presidential elections. It was EUR 1 = USD 1.59 in 4/2008 and is now EUR 1 = USD 1.28 . Still a far cry from EUR 1 = USD 0.97 in 2002.

Will we see a return to EUR 1 = USD 1 ?



More difficult to interpret is the GBP. The GBP has been overvalued for quite some time, so has dropped pretty rapidly against the USD & EUR.
2007 GBP 1 = USD 2+
2007 GBP 1 = EUR 1.5

Today, expect :

GBP 1 = USD 1.49
GBP 1 = EUR 1.16

Will we see EUR 1 = GBP 1 ?

Peter, why are you posting the same reply to a dozen of threads? Just curious.

I was searching for an original currency thread from the start of the year.

Didn't find it, but found lots of others - which I added the latest rates to.

fine - but all those identical posts are inaccurate.

"The USD is still very weak, but has started to gain strength after the presidential elections. " . . . . the rise of the $ and/or fall of the £/€ predates the election.
