Gbp Vs Nok


Recommended Posts

Or does Norway have any skeletons in their closet that we don't know about?

:lol:

Alistair Darling has already spent almost a fifth of Britain's GDP on bailing out its shattered banking system – more than any other major economy...Only Norway has come close to the UK, spending 13.8%.

Anybody out there in graphland got a track of GBP against Norwegian Kroner? It's the only European currency I can think of that appears relatively safe over the medium term.

Their SWF owns a large slice of the UK, which doesn't seem to be too wise a bet.

p-o-p

I try and trade relative value, and I just can't bring myself to buy NOK for that reason. If you've never been to Oslo, I can tell you it's the most insanely expensive city I've ever been to...like, bonkers. :blink: London/New York/Zurich are absolute bargains in comparison. If NOK appreciated, then it would have to get EVEN MORE bonkers expensive up there...and I can't bring myself to trade where there is no value.

One advantage to that is it discourages the Ryanair-assisted booze mobs.

Not entirely true. Cost of somewhere to live in Oslo looks very reasonable against southeast England. Even eating out was cheaper than I expected last time I was there. And my hotel was expensive, but very nice quality compared to a comparable-priced stay in, say, London, Dublin or Amsterdam.

Now Reykjavik was indeed insanely expensive. But I think that may have changed.
