    so apparently the aussie dollar is so low that 650 dollars american buys you a 1000 bucks australian. And only three months ago it was way up near 91 cents to the american dollar.

    Where is it going to end?

    Anyone being affected right now by the currency drop?

    I have a thousand dollars australian locked away in a nice savings account with seven percent interest but cant pull it out cause the currency difference.

    but I will be dumping american money into the account when it bottoms out.

    To think that a month ago they said that the US and AU would be parity by Christmas. It was 98 cents sometime in September.

    I get paid in euros, so it's been a real help to me.

    I think I'm about the only one that's doing well out of this financial crisis! ;)

    I wish Ender was here, maybe we can get some sort of signal like with Fishie as I would really appreciate his advice on what's likely to happen in the future. But since he works for the Macquarie bank I imagine he's a very busy boy.
