The CHF strengthened & the AUS weakened.

The rate has been worse than 1.10 for the last 2 years.

Having a complete idiot for a prime minister and his band of clowns doesn't help either.

I doubt Australia's exporters (and most of Australia's businesses) see things that way.

Re: Australian Dollar

What happened to South African ZAR? In 2012 the exchange rate was CHF1=ZAR8.5 and in 2015 CHF1=ZAR14. They say that's the emerging markets are being affected by slowdown in Asia. There must be more to it though than strength of Franc only.

We are really hitting difficult times.

I'm certainly not complaining, it now takes half the time to pay our bond off back home!

I wouldn't even bother with bond repayment. We just pay everything in cash. It's a good time now.

Here is an article about SA's property market. Although it may be seen by some as a propaganda, my personal feeling is that it still makes lot of sense.

With the way the Rand is going only one thing can keep up with it's decline and that is the state of the country.

Planning on moving to CH in mid November. We have had enough and are getting out while we still can.


SA is looking at ending dual citizenship. Renounce your foreign citizenship or.......


Just getting worse and worse.

Re: Australian Dollar

I know! We bought a place in Italy which settles this Friday. We are wishing we transferred the money from Australia when we signed the contract back in March . !!!
