Fantastic news for Brit expats thinking of going home because of more stringent visa rules.

 

Wow. I left the UK a relative poor man. If only we can get the pound down to 25 again I can go home the conquering hero !

Wonder if that was the expat brexiteer’s cunning plan all along?

Borrowed it from someone picturing it on evening Pattaya nigh street TT Exchanges

The graph shows continuing anxiety about the value of these Western heavily-indebted economies. And the slide continues today, even though the bank of Thailand has just reduced rates.

The Thai Central reserves of foreign currency measured in billions of dollars, 218. Growth is nearing 3%, inflation is subdued, there is little unemployment.

Those who may criticism of the Thai economy are trounced by the facts, those removed a savings here made a smart move.

 

Of course the future of the Thai economy is in doubt, as are the futures of all economies, given the current state of world affairs.  But in relative terms, the baht seems like a safe place to be.

 If you think that the system is in danger of meltdown, well then everyone will retreat to the dollar and the Thai baht will lose out and maybe you should be buying gold. But if you think the can will be kicked down the road or that it is possible to make fixes to keep things going, if you don't particularly want to fight the Fed, then the baht seems like a good place to be and this graph would give you confidence.

Well ….for buying gold I agree for a 1/3 of possessions … only …. a little bit late to do now , if you see the Thai Gold Baht pricing …..  in 2009 I knew the gold baht price at 13800 baht   … and then many say Gold does not make profit …. agreed , but then I say "paper" must loose value then …., Gold can not be printed ...but on paper they (Governments  ) can be printed any "value lie" 

They knew why leaving the gold standard....

There is little doubt that the US$ is a world-wide currency, that is currently under pressure by a very strong Thai baht. I certainly would hold it, though as, IMO, the pound will fall further than the US$. I expect £ to exchange at around 33-5 to the baht as Brexit day nears, but I don't believe it would go below 30 even if there's a no-deal exit, because UK economic fundamentals are solid, being the fifth largest global economy.  That could never implode in the short-term.

The advisory referendum decided nothing - just advised Parliament which decides. Parliament is supposed to decide in the national interest. Please explain why you believe brexit, which on all the evidence is bad for us in any shape but disastrous in "no deal" version, is in our interests? Significant that BJ if he gets his no deal wants a general election the next day before the chaos arrives.

And you expect a rational answer?

Good post with the exception the yen has always been the currency for flight (or meltdowns) and the baht is now being seen as a similar safe haven and won't be losing out anytime soon.

 

If the world globally hits some major snags, economical or warlike, expect the baht to strengthen. The only thing that will hurt the baht is an interior 'meltdown' and thats currently being stitched up too. Not looking good currency wise I'm afraid (unless you hold baht of course)
