Could someone please explain to me, that if there’s a financial crisis all over the place, but it started in the USA and they still aren’t feeling well according to the stock markets and all kinds of news bits I hear…
How the heck is it possible that the USD is strengthening against pretty much every other currency?
So much, that though they were on par with CAD a little while ago, it’s about 1.25–1.30 CAD to one USD now.
And of course I have to live in one of the, what, three countries that get trampled over in this. USD from 140 to 210 HUF a piece, EUR from 240 to 280 HUF a piece, GBP from 300 to 350 HUF a piece. Nice, isn’t it?
There go my plans of getting a laptop. Soon enough you can’t get rubbish for 200k if this keeps on going.
