What the hell is it dropping against, the USD? Is the USD staying strong again? The NZD is taking a dump too.

I wonder how long this carnage will continue? The Rand is like a freakin yo-yo.

U.S. Dollar Surges in Shock and Awe-inspiring Gains Over All Currencies

The US dollar is strong. Other currencies are weakening.

Forgive my ignorance, but surely this is good for sending money home?

It used to be 1,500 to 1 USD a few weeks ago. But now it only costs you 1,250?

I send mine back when GBP goes to 670/680 to the 1Mil.

No, it was not 1500 won to $1....

This is the highest its been for some time.  That is not good for sending money home.  It is only good for exchanging US dollars to Korean won.
