    5 years i´ve been touting and begging folks on SA to use simple BOC accounts in the good old USA.. Yuan hitting 2 year highs against the USD today and as US CEO (Obama) said in State of the Onion speech I made China move Yuan 11%..SO. those who had simple FSLIC Yuan accounts your up 15%. The 1%- year interest and the currency gain.

     

    And, i´m sure <Sec Lew alom¡ng with all democrats and republicans want the <Yuan higher... 11% during the next 4 years too ? I say easy drill sgt .............

    Sam there are no transaction costs ! Free checks and a debit card come with the account. Just like a BOC account anywhere around the world..
