    Default Canadian exchange rate here

    I didn't want to reply to your question where it doesn't belong but that is correct. The exchange rate thread was started to inform others the location of the cambio where US dollars for pesos were exchanged. As soon as people start to post anything else the thread is lost and speaking for myself I do not enjoying reading 50 posts to figure out what the change was today or 50 more to find what it was yesterday.

    Everyone is welcome to start a new thread where a discussion isn't allowed.

    So here we go use this thread to chat away.

    The Loonie never gets its fair value vis-a-vis the US$$....in 'The Republic' or the Dominican.......take your pick

    I think Canadian Dollars were 38 something today when I saw. Don't remember the exact decimal price.

    Can someone please check that. I'm sure we can get more pesos for a loonie at a cambio than we can in canada

    I'll post my take on loonies to us to pesos later today when I have more time

    I was getting 10,000 pesos at Scitia ATM and paying $295-300CAD at the end of April.
    I posted that on the daily rate thread back then.

    Rates ahve changed but we can link the values at the time

    April 20/15 the Loonie was 1.222 or 81.79, depepnding on your view'
    so if the peso rate was 44.... the CAD should pay35.99 ////// at that time

    at today's 45, CAD should get 34DRP (45 x .76)

    so, to finish

    I was getting 34 then.... and the dollar was better at that time

    I agree w/ the opinion that the CAD gets clobbered - even by ScotiaBank.

    Maybe somebody else has a higher math intellect than I do..........

    I rarely swap CAD for DRP........ I was squeezed in April......

    yes that sounds more like it. I just checked the place where I go which is a bit better than banks and its 29.73

    In March it was 34 in Dominicus then it dropped to 32

    So here is my thinking and please correct me if this doesn't sound right. Dealing with global currency serves here were I live let;s play with 1000 Canadian

    1000 CAD will get me 29726.91 pesos here

    1000 will get me 744.35 US (ouch)

    744.35 US X 45 will get me 33495.75 pesos in DR

    that 3000 plus pesos more Right?
