Economics and Investing:

A FOREX update: It is noteworthy that following the recent British Pound plummet, the Swiss Franc just jumped to 98.075 to the Dollar.  It was closer to 96 cents, just a few weeks ago. Methinks that a fairly durable Dollar/CH Franc parity trading range can’t be far off! (Parity was touched once briefly on July 27th.) I now have no regrets whatsoever about having hedged into Swiss Francs back when they cost me around 77 cents each. – JWR
