Pound Sterling faces twin risks

The fog of uncertainty continues…

Sterling is largely beholden to news on coronavirus and Brexit negotiations.

Given how well Sterling has held up, investors are still hopeful of a vaccine and/or trade deal before the year is out.

No one can say for sure which direction, if any, Sterling will go.

We are at a fork in the road.

The question is whether you want to take the risk?

Amidst so much uncertainty of a political/economic/health crisis, you may wish to lock-in a rate for peace of mind.

It will allow you to continue with your own plans using a secured budget.

If you would like to discuss your options, you can speak to one of our experienced team on 01872 487 500.

Pound holds up despite lockdown risk

The Pound has been remarkably resilient this week despite the new lockdown measures.

It’s not good news for the battered UK economy.

The three-tier system will cause plenty of financial tears, the longer it goes on.

Why’s the Pound not crashing down?

It’s being supported by hope for a breakthrough on Brexit.

Hope being the operative word.

As always, it’s tricky to know what to believe with Brexit.

While the EU’s Michel Barnier says we are inching towards a deal, the French minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, says a no-deal Brexit looks likely at this point.

We would be more calm if the markets were more nervous.

It seems to us that there is a degree of complacency about the political risks hovering over GBP.

If you need to transfer money abroad, you may wish to protect yourself from the turmoil ahead by securing a favourable exchange rate.

Pound Lifts to a 3 Week High

Market sentiment has recently improved for Pound Sterling.

Yesterday GBP hit a 3-week high against the US Dollar and was hovering near a 3-week high against the Euro.

The buoyant mood is largely due to hopes of a post-Brexit trade deal with the EU.

Boris Johnson continues to play hardball.

It might just work.

Most analysts seem to think the pressure of a deadline will forge a compromise before time runs out.

If expectations are already optimistic, it actually tilts the risk-reward for GBP to the downside.

We’ve come to expect a political decision (or even rumour) can change the course of exchange rates very quickly.

How can we help you?

If you have a currency requirement, it may be useful to have a conversation with our trading department to discuss technical levels.

You can call us on 01872 487 500.

To protect your upcoming transactions against the risks of sudden market movements, you may consider securing a fixed exchange rate.

Sterling swings between hope and despair

We are in an opportunistic market.

This week the Pound has been attempting to recover in response to rumours of Brexit progress.

The keyword in the sentence is rumours.

At the start of September, it was all doom and gloom.

Now it seems there could be “light at the end of the tunnel”.

The point is the endless Brexit saga swings between hope and despair.

When there is hope, it can be an excellent opportunity for buyers of Euro or US Dollar to secure an elevate rate.

When there is despair, it can be a great time for Euro and Dollar sellers to lock-in their gains.

It’s why we consider this an opportunistic market.

Buyers and sellers get their chance.

Part of our service is to help our client navigate the inherent volatility in currency markets and work with you to achieve a better exchange rate.
