Xoomed some money down ( $3.50 to send $250) and rate was 16.70 ……house always wins!i follow the dollar/peso very closely. yes, it did briefly hit 16.98. A couple days ago it briefly hit 17.39. The futures market is showing an slowing increasing value (meaning more pesos to the dollar) through the rest of the year. Although that doesn't guaranty anything the futures markets tend to be reasonable predictors.
