TFK Capitalist Pigs Thread

Swiss Central Bank had fixed their exchange rate @ 1.20 swiss to 1 euro. Lifted it today and it dropped like a stone to 1 to 1.
It’s roughly 20% more expensive to go to Switzerland today than it was yesterday. Some FX traders after getting cleaned this morning.

Euro continues to be a bucket of shite against the Dollar as well. Which is bad news for me ahead of my April visit stateside.

As long as he keeps his money in Swiss Francs he’s laughing. JP made his money from “FX” so he should be alright

You’ll be paying 20% more for your swiss cheese and watches though.

Open a spreadbetting account and short the Euro chaps. Ride it all the way to parity with the dollar and make a bundle tax free.

Wouldn’t argue with that. You might need a disclaimer on your post though.

JP supposedly made his money from the FX market. Chiefly by betting against the Peso during the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_peso_crisis
