    Hello. Now please stop investing in South Africa and all. Every Dick and Tom is sending their money here due to our high interest rates. 7% py and this is strengthening our currency and my FX is in Dollars.
    The more you guys send here, the more I loose man.
    And to top it all, I have this big time GOUT in my toe and can hardly move. I will have to stay put here all night on my chair and and just watch my money shrinking and all. Luckily I have seat belts on my new chair.
    How's this; My wife says it's from the beer. I think it's her food. My toe looks like a ripe tomato and all.
    As I was saying, my wife's investment has made 120% in 1 year. Now she puts stuff in my food to give me gout so I can't get to the computer to trade my forex and all. But I have managed to crawl here.

    Another example of why it's not safe to be around a computer after 1 too many beers.
    :p:p:p

    7% - sounds like that might make for some great swap rates. :D

    Gout? People still get gout?

    7% is pretty nice return... is that for a savings account?

    Well, look at it this way. You guys invest here big time as our interest rate is NOW 5.5%. The more you send here, the stronger our currency gets and the less I have in my FX account if I withdraw.
    Also, our major exports are gold, diamonds and platinum. We sell this in the shrinking $ and the big guys doing this are now getting very cross with you. Now please stop it.
    I must add that my new Ipad has got much cheaper.

    This is no only your problem. Many countries are suffering form this.
