By right RGT should be somewhere around 2.49. The money changers always shift the goal post when rates goes against them. Most of the time when rates fluctuate to fast, they will tell you " NO STOCK !!!!!!" @#%$##@@%$^$ Furious because can see but cannot eat. Usually at this level, i buy and keep for my acroo the border plundering. ekekekek

Ya... The rgt rate in all money changer is very bad due to cny.

If possible you can exchange with friend first or try to wait it out after cny.

Happy cny in advance

Hi Chien, was expecting around 2.48-49 when spot is around 2.50 but looking at situations and feedbacks, looks like the money changers are making a killing here. Normally it should be trading around 100 basis points discount to the spot but ...... they are really squeezing us. Its ok, I still have "spares" as I usually buy sufficient amounts to feed my twice weekly trip for petrol across the border. Being an ex FX dealer, I just don't like being squeezed knowing where the spot rates were. Cheers guys. Happy New Year Beer

My wife changed Rm2.45 at Boon Lay Shopping Centre. I think it's the shortage of Rm during the CNY period that leads to this unreasonable exchange rate. Shocked

Try these 3 places Woodlands HBD shopping area, Woh Hup Complex, Peoples Park complex
these places seem to provide better x change rates.

Not sure if it's been said, but do NOT change in JB. The rate is always worse in JB than it is in Singapore. Change in SG.

I suspect that it's tightly controlled in Malaysia.

It was better before and I've been told that the SG is weakening.

If they quote you around 2.40 go ahead man. Opportunity knock but once. Try to do it this way. Ask them what is the rate for buying RGT. IF they quote you low, just pretend..wah so low ahh... then I sell you RGT you give what rate?? Hope one kuai lan one quote you low also then YOURRRRSSSSS.......... That day at Amex counter the girl yaya papaya. Quote me both ways at 2.40 knowing I don,t have RGT to sell to her. Damm, if have sell her cash 5 Million and go and cover spot at 2.50. Make half million RGT if thats the case. Don,t have to work for a year..kekekekke Wish during my dealing days got such stupid spread differential.
