In Life by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

This week at the Current we relaxed on the sunny beaches of the Bahamas, plopped down on the couch to enjoy some of our favourite travel shows, revisited the middle rate, and more. As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.

The Bahamas was our Country of the Week. We delved into the island chain’s colonial history (which includes an ample amount of piracy) as well as its intriguing culture. See more HERE.

Our Travel Guide whittled down the vibrant cities and and beautiful beaches to a few choice, must-see destinations. There’s definitely no shortage of things to occupy your time as you’ll find out HERE.

In our Currency Spotlight we looked into the history of the Bahamian dollar. While it may be on par with the US dollar, there’s still a lot of interesting facts to take in HERE.

From Brits who’d rather stay home to Americans abroad in Europe, we rounded up 5 of our favourite travel shows in the hope that you’ll give them a chance too! See what we picked HERE.

FX 101: What is the Middle Rate?

We revisited our FX 101 article on the middle rate this week because we believe it is one of the most important concepts needed to understand foreign exchange. Revisit (or see for the first time) what the middle rate is HERE.


Every week we round up the biggest business stories from around the world in Headlines. This week: Canada’s deficit, Dell makes an acquisition, a housing bubble in London, and much more HERE.

Looking Ahead

Next week we’re heading towards Europe but stopping just short. Beyond that, look for more of the great stories you’ve come to expect!
