Yes Sterling continues to push up against the weakening Dollar in light of negative interest rate chatter and potential Fed stimulus pushing us higher against the Baht

Euro at highest rate for 2 years against the Greenback pushing them higher as well against the Baht

I won't pretend to understand anything that you have said but all I can say is that I have noticed a steady improvement over the last couple of weeks .....My health insurance is due next month ...Should I transfer 1,000 quid now or hang on a few weeks ..??

Overall Baht excahnge rates are rising because Sterling Euro AUD NZD etc are all rising against the USD which is showing weakness. Sterling/Baht could well go higher but I'd be happy to transfer £1000 today if I was in same position.

If it goes to 42 (I dont think it will) then just transfer another £1000 and pound cost average at above 41 as I do on occasions. Least if you transfer £1k over now it locks in a rate we've not seen for some time..

I've just sent it with Transferwise and got 40.9 with the little arrow thingy pointing down .... My biggest problem now will be trying to keep away from pretty girls until my bill is paid!!!

EDIT = Looking at XE.COM for the last month then I have "gained" 3,000 Baht from the early month low to today's rate !!!

This morning the rate is 41.09... but for £1k, with charges, it is still 40.8. I am sitting around for 41 including charges.
