We often look at the state of the British pound against the US dollar and indeed even a few other versions of the dollar as well (Canada, New Zealand and Australia to name just three). But how has it been doing as far as the Bahamian dollar is concerned?

As 2010 came to a close we could only stand back and hope that the pound would put in a good performance to start off the New Year with a bang. Unfortunately as we have seen elsewhere, some currencies prove stronger than the pound and that means the currency will end up on the back foot as we move from the old year to the new one.

Watching the tussle between the pound and the Euro has been very interesting of late. There have been many problems in the Eurozone and this has allowed the pound to make some headway in gaining a better exchange rate against the European single currency.

So here we are at the end of another year. 2010 will be remembered for many reasons, but we’re interested in how it came to an end for the British pound. Would it produce a good result as far as the currency was concerned when it was pitted against the Swiss franc?

The Croatian kuna may not be one you have heard of before. But as with every other currency on the planet it does a daily dance with other currencies to see whether it can achieve a higher exchange rate as a result. This month we are going to pit it against the British pound to see which of these two European currencies will get the upper hand.

This month we have decided to choose three currencies we do not normally focus on for these reports. It is important to highlight and read about popular and worldwide currencies such as the US dollar and so on, but smaller currencies can also paint a picture that is worth seeing.

Quite often in this column we focus on how the British pound is performing alongside many of the well known world currencies. In choosing currencies such as the US dollar, the Hong Kong dollar and the Euro to compare it to, we learn how the pound is able to stand up against the biggest currencies in the world.

Some months and some currencies really raise the eyebrows more than others do. Sometimes two currencies can meander through a month and you look back and feel as if nothing at all has happened. But this was not the case during October for the British pound and the Hong Kong dollar.

That week did at least finish on a slightly better and healthier note, as the pound managed to drag itself back up to a more respectable 1.5296 for the week’s end. But where would we go now and how would we progress through the second half of the month?

When September came to an end the British pound was producing an exchange rate of 1.6361 against the Australian dollar. Hopefully we would be able to produce better figures than this as we progressed through October on the currency converter, but it remained to be seen whether this would actually be the case.
