Lira

Watching the rate over 6 months and it seems the rate for the Lira against the pound is great. Is this normal for this time of year? To be honest I'm not looking for a economic reason etc, just wondering if its worth waiting for a bit longer or this is the norm for this time of year? Thanks for any advice.

As with any currency there will be fluctuations but what we have been seeing recently is extraordinary. Because it has fallen so much some could argue there will be a 'correction' at some stage but who knows when or if it will happen? As for me; I'm just hanging on till it falls a bit.

The changes in Lira rates are due to flactuation in markets elsewhere in recent days. It was started by problems in Argentina with their foreign reserves which started a chain reaction across the world affecting currencies like Turkish Lira, Indian Rupee etc.
