[P.S. As a wild guess I think the £ money markets may be underestimating "The Irish Problem" - specifically the DUP.].
Well I got something right for once - and I wish I hadn't. The 10 DUP MPs now dictate to the UK Government what it is allowed to do about of Brexit and the £ has tumbled back down again.

Not quite dancing in the street, but certainly swilling down the Fino. At one euro a pop it's so hard not to  :)

A week ago the dollar was over 3.95 to the lira and people were speculating on it hitting 4 by the end of the week. Now it is below 3.85 and may be going lower. Funny old thing this currency stuff, ain't it?

Yeah - a year ago my son was adamant that Bitcoin would reach $10,000 by the end of this year. It’s almost £10,000.

If only I’d listened :(

And Bitcoin is now over 55,000 TL.
That would have bought you a few Efes Stoop.  ;)

Bitcoin down a bit today. Ethereum being talked about as overtaking bitcoin. That could mean from $450 to over $15000 if bitcoin does not plummet.
