I have a friend coming over in March with an empty suitcase, nothing I need, but a lot of 'wants' to decide on a few.

What things have you been buying from the US lately?

Good time to go to the US for a holiday too. We are going there in May and yesterday I bought an initial amount of USD actual notes to take with us, while it's cheap.

There's a decent chance that the NZD could go still higher against the USD given that the Fed Reserve confirmed today that they are not going to start raising interest rates there any time soon.

It's not just from the US either. Like I plan to take a gamble shortly on one of the new generation China tablets and those sites all trade in US dollars as well.

It's trending up and up at the moment:
