Obama vs McCain

Any predictions on whether the currency exchange will change a lot on the USD vs £? If Obama wins they say the US stock market will go up. If McCain wins it will go down.

Or will it be up either way (which usually does after elections). Drats, maybe i should have exchanged some money. Or buy from online US shops tonight before the results?

Obviously being a HUKDer i want to take economic advantage of the situation by actively participating in world politics even though i cant vote *grin

I'm sure they have rational reasons for making such claims, actually I'm sure they don't and it's just more spin.

Either way McCain to win, :w00t:! (don't ask my why)

What on earth are you blabbering on about

Unfortunately its not looking good for the £ especially with the BoE meeting just around the corner

1.40-45 by the end of Dec is a very strong possibility
#6
You really need to keep an eye on the worlds oil prices as the dollar rate usually runs parallel

mccain's gonna be president.
Obama is just the token b***k guy.
besides looks like a blatant case of "make it look like they have a choice" I reckon they had to make it "appear" as if obama had a chance, to make the US of A look like the ultimate success story of democracy.
mark my words Mccain's gonna "clinch" it.

So if the American economy goes up will the exchange rate be better for us Brits or would it become worse?
#9
better if you have a shed load of $ but worse if you wanna buy em.

Why is that exactly?

Before the credit crunch £1 = $2.

Now £1 = $1.6

Surely if their economy was to strengthen it would mean that the exchange rate would return to what it was a few months ago?
#11
if $ is stronger, it means it's better for them means they can then afford to come here for holiday for less $. if the $ is stronger, £ is cheaper to buy.

similar to € is stronger at the moment, compared to a year ago when it was us enjoying a strong £ and got more out of the holiday in europe.
