I am leaving for a trip from the US to Ireland on October 15th, the debt ceiling deadline is the 17th. The closer we get to the deadline with no resolution, the worse the exchange rate will get. Worse yet, if we DON'T raise the debt ceiling by the deadline, the dollar will presumably plummet. I don't want to be stuck in Ireland when that happens and all of a sudden have the exchange rate be awful. But then again, if we DO meet the deadline in the next 10 days, the dollar should see a slight bounce. I am absolutely at loss at what I should do in order to maximize my dollar for this trip. HELP. any opinions would be welcome!!
