Problem is financial institutions use a spread to cover fluctuations for that day, so its usually the posted rate plus a couple of percentage points. When the dollar was stable, the spread was tighter, but now I find myself getting 3 and 4% differences on the spread just doing a US dollar wire from CAD.
