Dropped just below $1.50 over night and at 7.30 this morning it's only just above 1.50 at GBP / USD 1.50051, seems to be coming under a little more pressure, hope today brings better news.

Broke below $1.49 this morning to $1.4867 and at 1.00pm it's now $1.48850, seems to be going in just one direction, hope for a reversal soon, otherwise we might see an increase to the fuel surcharge on flight tickets along with other holiday products, car hire, hotels, etc.

Im keeping a very close on eye on it, and willing it to go back up!

I'd planned on taking $3000, and that will set me back £2040 currently with Fair FX, where as It would have set me back £1900 if I'd got my money back in November..... Im hanging on a bit longer, if it gets anywhere near 1.4 I think I'd buckle...

UP! UP! UP! PLEASE!

Still a few cents to go till then but praying and fingers crossed that you don't need to buckle, just slightly above $1.49 now, keep on willing......

The best rate I can get is 1.47. Luckily we don't need a lot as we've got some left from last time. It's ridiculous how low it is at the moment.

More bad news released this morning at 9.30 for U.K. industrial production which unexpectedly fell in January, has placed more pressure on the Pound this morning, started declining at 9.31 and at 9.42 it's $1.48366.

Its gone back up again though, once people realised why the manufacturing figures went down. One offshore platform went down, which was a main hub that took out 17 other fields (including one of my companies). I would personally hold off buying dollars at the moment because I reckon we will start getting better UK economic data for the next couple of months.

so strange!
so the dollar is stronger than the pound?
i can't understand why the dollar is falling against the shekel!
i need to convert dollars into shekels, but the dollar has been in a free fall against it.
I didn't realise that the pound is in even worse shape.

it all makes no sense to me at all. There is no logical reason i can see why the shekel would be in better shape than the dollar.
i know the economy is stronger than the US economy - no question. But there are also much more significant and possibly dangerous unknowns.

Basically, there's no logic in any of it!
