“several weeks ago, 1500 CAD was around 1280 USD. today its more than 1360 and showing no sign of slowing. any chance its going to quit rising soon?”
“How the hell should I know?”
“crap. even s-rge-who-knows-all is stumped”
Never heard of google?”
“TT is my google.
and i already have a converter. what i want to know if anyone macro-economically minded knows anything about trends in international currency”
“ok. so i used some of the other tools, and they dont even work properly. i asked it what was the high and low values for jan 1 2000 until now, and it gave me values for march 1 2000 til november 5 2006
the highest, btw, was september 5, 2006”
“When the currencies are equal the US locks it then all the illies run to the north and claim Canada as Baha Nortenorte.”
“salebored - What's your deal?”
“Since oil is traded in US dollars as oil gets at these levels the dollar falls to cushion the oil prices. that's the deal. all other currencies in this hemisphere will rise..”
“Our dollar has risen slightly against other world currency as it's a popular flavour for foreign investment right now. But mostly it's the US dollar dropping. The Cdn $ is sitting at 91 cents US right now, which is the highest it's been since the mid-1970s.
When I started making regular palooza trips to the US our buck had bottomed out around 62 cents. It sure is a lot less expensive to travel down there now !
“I used to love partying in Toronto at 30-35% exchange rate. Don't think I could afford it at anything less.”
Partying in TO?
“Great sense of humour, BM.
Talk here is that the Canuck $ will reach parity with the US$ in the not-too-distant future.”
“Hmmm, maybe I should start hanging on to those Canadian quarters I always seem to get in my change.”
“You don't like Toronto. My favorite club, if I can remember correctly, was Whiskey Saigon. I think it was in a renovated Industrial/warehouse area with a bunch-o-other clubs?”
“I remember about 5 years ago I was getting $1.58 Canadian for every US Dollar... back then 95% of my clients were Americans... now that has changed with the rates.”
“Just a (not so) friendly rivalry between Montrealers and the other place.”
“LOL! That's not just a Hockey thang???? I enjoyed Montreal but have only been there once. Sorry, matter of Location only.”
“I should take a trip to Montreal. Itís hard to believe Iíve never been there and itís closer to home than NYC and Boston, which Iíve been to multiple times.”
“Ottawa is nice, also. I like them all better than NYC & Boston.”
“Just remember.... when y'all decide to stop visiting here because of the higher canuck buck and the soon-to-be need for a passport... it wasn't our fault
“canada is pissing me off
“i guess i better exchange what money i got saved up so far for my LLI tuition”
“Figures we plan another trip to Canada this year....
I'm sure in 2010 when we go up to Vancouver for the Olys the Canada dollar will be worth MORE than the US dollar....”
“Hah! When the dollar drops below the Canadian dollar, I'm dumping American quarters in Montreal!”
“ďI should take a trip to Montreal. Itís hard to believe Iíve never been there and itís closer to home than NYC and Boston, which Iíve been to multiple times.Ē
Get off your arse and go!”
“I always get side tracked, because I have to drive through the mountains to get there.”
