The South Korean Won exchange rate for April, 2018 averaged 1067.99 KRW
to USD. That's 194.8 basis points lower than the March, 2018 rate of 1069.94,
and 6618 basis points lower than the April, 2017 rate of 1134.18.  The minor
movement in the KRW/USD exchange rate from March to April provides
evidence that the short term trend in KRW/USD is relatively flat. If that trend
continues in the currency market, we should see an average daily rate in May,
2018 that is close to 1066.05.

The average South Korean Won conversion rate over the last 12 months was

change in the South Korean Wons to dollars exchange rate over the last 12
months compared to average conversion rates over the last 10 years serve as
an indicator that the long term trend in KRW/USD is relatively flat.
