How does the US dollar trade against the Guatemalan quetzal historically?

The Guatemalan quetzal has a history of instability due to high poverty levels in Guatemala. Until 1987, the quetzal was pegged to and domestically equal to the US dollar. Fluctuations in the US economy were mirrored in the value of the GTQ. In 1987, the GTQ cut ties with the USD, and since that time, the stability of the Guatemalan economy has steadily increased with government subsidized exports.

As a result, the GTQ is projected to continue rising, but the USD still holds significant strength against the quetzal.
