paypal is fuked. sometimes it wont let me use my credit card at all. I call in and the agent just says it should work but just doesnt. They cant figure it out and later tells me to just use my bank account which gets ass raped on exchange. such bs.

With the possibility of rate increases on the horizon (possibly in June) and rising oil prices, our dollar could go up even more in the summer.

Perhaps approach the $1.10 mark again? Only time will tell.

Japan will be selling their USD holdings soon to free up money for rebuilding after the quakes.

just incase anyone has been sleeping... exchange rate is better than ever if you are exchanging from CAD to USD. It was around 6 cents stronger this morning.. crazy.

Hypothetically speaking... Let's say the US ecomomy goes into the crapper even further. The exchange rate goes up to $1.50.

What's your game plan then?

If the exchange rate reaches $1.50 our economy will be in very serious trouble, I don't even want to imagine the potential consequences.
