Good time for shopping. Not so great if you are holding USD and plan to sell it since the rate is near par.

actaully i found the usual curreny shop is better than banks.. if you got a huge amount of money, i would suggest you search the thread, i believe there is a compnay that does it at good rate


or if you have friend who works the bank can get you staff rate (that's how i get my money)

I made out very well on my vacation to LA this last week thanks to both the exchange and the fact that the US economy is hurting badly. If anyone wants to travel in the US book your trips now, there's some fantastic deals.
