    Speaking to a German friend of Mine last night who worked for Deutsche Bank for over 30 years and retired as a very senior executive , he informed my that in his opinion Thailand's economy was not in a healthy position and to expect the Baht to slide further ,but nothing like the good old days in 97 he hastened to add , he also said that massive corruption here in Thailand were no one at the top of the pile ever seems to get punished is not helping matters either ,here is a little something I looked up at his request Baht hits six-year low; shares of tourism-linked Thai firms plunge, Companies & Markets News & Top Stories - The Straits Times

    Yep, I am wiring some money today to my wife for the monthly expenses, but holding on to the rest a bit longer. I feel 36 before too long.

    I agree, 36 to the dollar very soon, and I also feel that the Thai economy is about to finally rollover.

    All the economies in SE Asia are hurting. Turns out Thailand's while in bad shape is, compared to others, not as bad.

    Certainly. Perhaps more given the Government is keen to see it happen to make Thai exports more affordable.

    I believe Vietnam has already devalued making their rice about 45 US dollars a tonne more cheap than Thai rice .

    Agreed, SE Asia is hurting and they are doing as you noted, trying to make exports more appealing.

    Not surprising RC being the dollar took a huge hit when the stock market went south yesterday and the 4 days previous. It might stabilize at mid 35 for a bit.

    Market looks to have a rebound today but its still extremely volatile

    Market swung up 600 yesterday only to fall 200 further down of the opening bell.800 point swing. Today is a hard call. Its up right now from what I am watching but there is nothing tangible to why other than people who lost a wad are selling short raising activity to make it look better.

    Thai baht flat at 35.5ish to 1 USD. A 36 number looking iffy now.
