I'm quite confused to how and when the money changers update their rates.

At the beginning of the day, do they follow the previous day rates ? They usually only update the rates once a day only right? And I think the actual rates for the day only comes out around 12 noon.

Anyone has any idea?

Maybank is offering real best rate for three months till Sept09. Just drop by its money changing outlet and ask for the best price over the counter. No need to nego, u'll get the best price. Go try it out and best of all, u'll be assured genuine currency!

They based their rates on the same source that yahoo finance base on. Say for instance http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?s=sgdmyr=X&t...l=on&z=m&q=l&c=

Rates might change noon-afternoon but after night time they won't change anymore, even if actual rates have moved dramatically since then.

So if currency so and so went up after afternoon/evening, u can actually dash over to buy it cheaper at the morning/afternoon rate before the next day when they'll update the price.

Hey all, I'll be going to Norway soon. Would it be advisable to exchange all my cash locally (RM4k-RM5k) to Euro, or exchange some then withdraw the rest at the ATM when I'm running out of money? I've activated Cirrus for overseas withdrawal. Is the bank rate reasonable? I am aware of the RM8 fees my bank will be charging me for each withdrawal, but it seems like I won't worry about carrying the cash so much...

it would be better if you carry the euro amount you will need in a week.. the rest should stay in the bank.. withdraw only when u really need it.. the bank charges for me are really reasonable.. carrying too much cash is a big risk..
