I must be weird.
All over I’m seeing wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth over the fact that the Canadian dollar traded one for one with the U.S. dollar today, whereas, just a few years ago, about 75 U.S. cents would buy you a Canadian dollar.
So? If you had taken $10,000 U.S. and purchased Canadian, you’d have bought 13,333 dollars Canadian, which now would be worth $13,333 U.S.
Jesus. It’s like complaining that it takes $140 to buy a share in Apple, whereas it only cost $80 a year ago.
