Where is the peso headed?


Recommended Posts

Got almost to 20, rallied back to just under 19 and closed Friday at 19.01 (closing fix as posted in the WSJ). It seems to sniff out a Clinton lead and prone to rise. Weakness in the US equity market causes it to weaken. Two opposing trends. Considering that this time a year ago it was under 17, anything in this general area is a gift.

Doesn't anyone negotiate anymore?


Go to your bank or investment institution and talk with a manager who can make decisions.  Tell them something like, "I want to move $35,000 US ( however much) to my account here but I don't want to miss an advantageous jump in the exchange rate.  When you can give me 19.75 (or whatever but be reasonable) let me know and I will execute the move that day."


You can bet that manager has someone they can call who will be able to tell them to give you a better rate.  You have to ask and you have to tell them what you will do and then follow thru on it.

As an international banker for over 30 years, there are numerous things that impact the currecy markets.  No one has a crystal ball, otherwise I would agree with TelsZ4 that we would all be rich if we knew what was going to happen. The current rates have been very good.  Anything above 18 is excellent considering where rates were years back.  To request a bank to monitor rates for a future currency buy or sell is not going to happen unless the amount is appreciable since any profit the bank makes on a spead is directly related to the value of the transaction. Anything less than a million US dollars wouldn't warrant the extra work involved since there would be not much additional profit with a movement of 25-50 basis points.
