Exchange rate: 178.974987
Rate valid as of: 16/10/2008
That is the rate available on the converter To view the link you have to Register or Login - but that's not the rate you could buy Yen at today. It's just a rough conversion guide.

I think we need to ask Justin to give us the best available price to buy for the day.

I am winning, because I am using real money and I have an agreed to price to buy my business (set some months back). Now I am transferring the money at a much better rate than I would have anticipated. I agree with Sunny, it is very like to settle back down to lower levels, but I will have locked in my profit by then.

It occurs to me that it may not always be possible to get an accurate bid and offer price - so I think it should be acceptable to deal at a price which is verified, but which may be mid-market ... provided you use the same source (and mid-market price) when you come to sell. So on that basis we can accept Swissroll's price and the Aus $ deal by prs100 - but they must deal on the same basis when they calculate any profit or loss.

Investments aren't without risk etc, etc....but if this repeats itself again then I'm holding the entire antipodean populations responsible (with the possible exception of the Cook Islands):

I wonder whether it was a mistake for me to invest half my money in RBS at this point. A lot of analysts are tipping them as a buy at the moment but I wonder whether their share price is going to stray much from around the 65p mark until the rights issue (at 65p) has been done?
