The Baht is the strongest Asian currency this year as reported by Bangkok Post today.

 

It's bad news for retirees and students alike. 

 

Baht is also stronger against Chinese currency meaning Chinese tourists number will drop too.

..be a sport and do let us know what he says would you.

 

Do you honestly think that he will pick up the phone?

 

Most probably, it is a recording that says 'vote for me in the next election'.

Well done  to the Thai Nation , it people and  its economy , they all worked hard to make the Baht a strong currency .

  All the"not doing to well* Westerners who want to live like kings on a small income  will have to move to Pakistan or Turkey or somewhere  else

you forgot to mention brexit,it would still be near enough 50 now its heading for a 20-25 year low of less than 40,maybe those Brits should work a bit harder 😆😭

It's been rising since the floods of 2011.

 

- Nature attempts to claim back the farmlands bringing silt and gooey-glop to the auto-plants.  Royal Thai govt. extends tax-holiday and other subsidies in an effort to restart the auto-plants.

- At about the same time, Kiwi dollar commences it's lower-rates cycle. (Currently, Kiwi rates on par with Aussie and lower than Looney and the Greenback.)

 

In response to the above 2, Japanese money-centers switch from +Kiwi /-Yen to +THB/-JPY.

A strengthening THB attracts the weaker Euros, Brexiters into Thai "property" or THB strengthening the THB further.

 

Looks like the THB is very tightly wound.  And could stay wound for a very long time, perhaps a decade from here.

Or it could unwind tomorrow, suddenly like it did in 1997 when lacking foreign reserves to support the peg (25 to the dollar), the THB was floated, bringing Hedge-Funds into the picture, driving down the THB to 56 to the dollar in 6 months.

Im unsure and thus asking.... if its rising does it mean its good for me if Im intending to convert some baht to euro and english pounds cash??

thanks

Yes, a stronger baht will result in you getting more Euros or Pounds when you convert Thai Baht, but really not that much of a difference unless you're converting a large amount.
