    Most banks are holding on to their Dollars (for obvious reasons) but all the banks knew this US close down was more than a "remote possibility". Best guess: When the US federal reserve, the house and senate and the government can come to some sort of agreement on 2013/14 budgets it will ease the situation. I know some people that have all their savings in US Dollars and they are trying to get to them - no point. I think at the moment the USD/GBP rate is $1:61, it has been $2:06 in the past. At the moment with congress etc and the current state of affairs in Washington things could "see-saw" for another 12 days. October 17th is the next D-Day for the Dollar.o_O
