We rapidly seem to be heading for parity (again) for the Canadian and US dollars.... this is good if we are investing alot in equipment and imported tools... but if we are selling US$ based commodities, it will be tougher...

today we are less than 1.03 to 1....

who wants to guess a date and time that we reach Parity.......I am going to guess 2pm on Thursday Nov 12 TH

December 5th 11:30 AM - if the Eastern Seaboard gets a cold snap. Otherwise not until 2010.

US dollar index dec

US dollar index weekly

Nov. 9, 2010?
