Heh Lee!

How did you move cash from your house sale in Florida into euros? If we reach parity, I think I'd move a chunk of dollars into euros in anticipation of an eventual retirement apartment.

I'll repeat again for those weren't around when I initially posted this...

"The window opens tomorrow and closes Saturday at midnight CST."

That is why I said...I'm waiting for news.  I still am...

I'm taking the rest of the day off...it's too nice today to just sit inside.

Best,

TCG

Have you checked out Interactive Brokers? They charge 0.20 basis points for under a million ($2.00 minimum for the first $100,000) and the rates go down after a million:

Alternately your can attach an FX market order to a trade when buying securities in other countries:

Moved some of it. Not all of it. Too much, unfortunately. Coulda shoulda woulda. 

My bank has a euro deposit account, but the haircut is obscene. I should have opened an account at Interactive Brokers, deposited the doodahs there and made the switch there. Would cost next to nothing.  Thing is, I despise Thomsass Petersflysopen, and I didn wanna do it. Didnwanna do it.  So I paid through the nose instead. 

The chunk I left in doodahs will be moved to an IB Yourapeein account that I open here. Probably will open the account next week now that I will have a permanent address  Tamara.

Beat me to it. But I can't open a US account. Brokers are not allowed to open accounts for non-residents, regardless of citizenship.

Thanks, gents!

I will look forthwith at opening an IB account, despite me now also not liking... :unsure2:

Thomsass Petersflysopen?

Is he related to Mr. Manfrengensen?
