    Default Pound sinking - deflation expected

    We may see 1.4 against the dollar by the end of today.

    Yes, I'm short since 1.5400

    And we know how fx traders like straight line trends - follow the herd. Any actual thinking tends to make their brains hurt.

    The sooner they are replaced with computers the better.

    That potential contract in € is looking better and better, even though it turns out rate isn't quite as high as initially thought.

    Even the small freelance project I took on at $50/hr is looking less paltry now... my brain is still set in £1 = $2 mode so it's a pleasant surprise everytime I check what my $ are REALLY worth

    I'm gutted - when I changed some money back in April, for £100, I got $192 -

    Now I will be lucky if I get $150

    And NY is not cheap either!!
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!
