The rate on the street.

Recommended Posts

Sorry that was my last instalment for the foreseeable future.

Am currently sitting in KLIA2 awaiting my flight to Perth in about 8 hours.

 

Maybe some other member can post the occasional photo of the rates as they wonder the dusty streets of sin city.

Not on the street as such, but I did a swift transfer today from the UK Nationwide Building Society to Kasikorn and got 45.70.

Guys I'm not too sure how accurate the OANDA website / currency exchange figures are but they're giving 46.11 at the moment.

 

Meanwhile any improvement is welcome and I agree Jacko, breaking the magical 50 milestone will be a welcome sight.

When I say happy.............I mean happy that its hit 45.after all the brexit malarkey etc!

 

Just a few years ago, it was around the 43 ish mark.............took a few years to get up to 50.............

 

I aim to retire in about 4 years time........Will be spending about 5 or 6 months in Thailand every year then........Id be happy if its 50 or more then!

Looks like the USD/THB rate is making a fast move upward recently.

I think that has more to do with events in a hospital in Bangkok than the strength of the dollar. TT showing 43.55 for GBP and 35.6 for USD this afternoon.

The USD is at a (since July) high against the Euro as well, so it's not related solely to hospital situation.

A jump from 34.85 on Saturday to 35.7 today. Nice climb in a few days just in time for my trip Monday. I just hope I will be able to spend it.

In terms of Pattaya the improvement in the $US is a two edged sword. The apparent reason is the likelihood of the interest rates improving anytime soon in the US. People want their dollars to earn dollars and as interest rates improve more money will be converted into dollars.

 

The other side of the coin is that other currencies will fall as they become less popular to US citizens and banks. The overall effect therefore could be that less people come to Thailand as the rate of their currency decreases. All this assumes of course that the Thai baht does not plummet as well.

Janet Yellen promising a rate hike in December caused most of it according to some talking heads. She really means it this time.

Good days for the $ then..... Sterling not so. Worrying situation for the UK guys on a fixed pension, may struggle to prove they have sufficient income for the retirement extension. I hope the British bar owners introduce some sympathy specials!

I thought I'd buy some Aussie dollars with baht today......I'm paying another visit to my sons graduation.....

 

Seeing the baht drop fills me with joy pound wise but using baht to buy Aussie dollars before it falls further meant I lost about 7 dollars from yesterday's rate on XE.

 

Still it's only money.
