    My OH checks the exchange rate everyday.

    $2.8 to the pound this morning- he got quite excited. If only we had the money to be changing- house is still on the market.

    Fingers crossed that it stays up until we sell the house.

    It's a good time to be shifting funds if you've got them. The rate has soared from $2.55 on July 13 to $2.95 today. How much higher before it stalls?

    All this talk of soaring rates is doing nothing for my (normally) happy state of mind you know - we have to go back to the UK for a trip before the end of the year and it's going to cost us more every time the exchange rate goes up!

    Good for those making the move over here though

    US turmoil set to hasten NZ dollar's fall
    Page 1 of 2 5:00AM Tuesday September 11, 2007
    By Adam Bennett

    The New Zealand dollar's recent slide is set to continue this week as concerns mount that US economic problems could weigh on global growth.

    But the local sharemarket yesterday demonstrated resilience in the face of significant losses on overseas markets.

    Over the last week the kiwi has lost nearly 2 per cent against the greenback. But the losses have been steeper against other currencies - about 2.8 per cent against the currencies of our top five trading partners as measured by the trade weighted index and more than 3.5 per cent against the rapidly appreciating Japanese yen.

    Having closed at US69.16c on Friday, the local unit opened at US68.91c yesterday and ended the session on US68.81c, having fallen as low as US68.22c during the session.
