It’s time to see how things went against the Hong Kong dollar last month, and to see which currency would end up in the better position on the currency converter at the end of it. The pound started with a rate of 12.237 against the dollar, so where would we take that particular exchange rate?

It isn’t every day that we look at where the British pound stands against the Canadian dollar. Mostly this is because the Canadian dollar isn’t always that much different to the US dollar. But every now and then it is good to check out the situation, and that is what we are going to do this month.

Unfortunately Friday 13th January wasn’t as promising as we hoped it might be. Throughout the week that led up to that date we could see that the pound was struggling to do anything worthwhile with the US dollar.

On the last day of 2011 the British pound bagged a rate of 1.1971 against the Euro. But there was a whole New Year ahead to get started on, so when the traditional New Year’s Day break was done, there was work to do to try and gain a better rate against the Euro.

We haven’t taken a closer look at the battle between the British pound and the Japanese yen for a while, so perhaps we should focus our attentions on this pairing on the currency converter this month.

This is always an interesting currency pairing to look at on the currency converter. This is namely because the Icelandic currency is not one that immediately springs to mind when we think of major world currencies.

While the British pound was doing well against the troubled Euro during November, the same could not be said against the Hong Kong dollar. Here the pound was starting with an exchange rate of 12.453, but it would not hold that ground for very long.

The first week ended on 1.1611 so while the rate dropped back a little it didn’t sink without trace. The pound kept up its strength throughout the second week too, rallying to 1.1674 as it began and then heading up to 1.1718 before dropping back to close out the week on 1.1671.

There is a very real possibility that Greece may leave both the Euro and the EU before the end of 2011. Moreover, if Greece does retreat from the EU and Euro the ramifications will be felt throughout the world for some time to come.

The ups and downs of the currency markets have been quite difficult to keep track of in recent months. The global turmoil seems to be reaching fever pitch at times, and at the end of September the pound was worth 1.5580 against the US dollar.
