Pound under Pressure

Pound Sterling has been in a nervous mood recently.

A little surprising given we have a booming housing market, bumper business confidence and 50% of the UK adult population now fully vaccinated.

When a currency fails to make gains on positive news it can be a warning sign that the good news is already in the price.

There’s no doubt the Pound’s had a strong run.

Only last week, GBP hit a 3-week high against the Euro, over 3-year highs versus the US Dollar, and over 6-month highs versus the Aussie Dollar.

Perhaps it’s what’s on the horizon that’s worrying traders.

Brexit tensions are simmering and attention is now turning to the next stage of lockdown easing.

All eyes (and ears) will be on Parliament next Monday.

The announcement is likely to determine the direction of travel and direction of the Pound.

It’s an upcoming risk to be aware of.

What should YOU Do?

In the interim, if you would like to take away the stress and worry around exchange rate volatility, consider locking-in a rate.

Euro Jumps to 2 Week High

The Euro has had a good run lately.

The Euro has climbed to its highest levels against the Pound since the 10th of May.

It could prove temporary.

The unique differentiator for the Pound in the last 6 months has been the rapid vaccine roll-out.

At present, 72% of UK adults have had their first vaccine.

In comparison, it’s only 35% in Europe - less than half the UK’s level.

The expected economic benefits of this have boosted the Pound.

In fact, the Pound’s performance so far in 2021 has been second only to the Canadian dollar among the world’s 10 leading currencies.

So the recent wobble in the Pound may just be profit taking as restless traders await fresh economic data.

So what can you do about this situation?

As always, you never want to take favourable rates for granted.

Sometimes currency markets look far into the future and begin to adjust exchange rates well before new events occur.

In the latter half of 2021, the marginal advantage of the vaccine roll-out will shift from the UK to Europe, and the Pound’s gain could unwind.

If you would like some guidance on rates and timing, please get in touch.

Pound jumps to 3 month highs

After a few wobbly weeks, the Pound has regained momentum.

Against the US Dollar, GBP is sitting at 3-month highs and is within a whisker of 3-year highs.

While the current trend against the Euro is not as obvious, the Pound is right near the top end of its 1-year range.

Recently the Pound has benefited from data showing the UK economy is rebounding strongly.

The same can’t be said for the Euro, which has been weighed down by the fact that the Eurozone bloc slipped into a double-dip recession in the first quarter of this year.

While COVID news in the UK continues to be positive, we think the upside is already priced into the Pound. If anything, the Pound may be at risk due to growing concerns over the spread of the Indian variant of the coronavirus.

In contrast, the European vaccine programme has a long way to go – which sounds negative – but actually leaves plenty of upside for the Euro ahead.

So when should YOU Exchange your money?

We appreciate it’s never easy to decide on the right time to exchange your money.

There’s always an excuse to defer.

However, with all the uncertainty that lies ahead, you may consider locking in an exchange rate.

It will allow you to make firm plans, budget more effectively, and give you one less thing to worry about.

Are You looking beyond Covid

What’s driving exchange rates right now?

Investors are looking beyond Covid…

Most of the recent news about exchange rates is centred on politics or the economy.

In the UK, there is an immediate risk from the Scottish elections.

Talk of another Scottish referendum would be extremely damaging for the Pound.

In Europe, economic sentiment is at its highest level since September 2018, despite the threat of a third Covid wave.

And in the US, a string of positive data, including GDP growth and falling jobless claims, has given the Dollar a boost. The Federal Reserve is even considering an interest rate rise as the US economy could overheat.

Basically, there are signs of recovery across the board.

Currencies have gone from a race to the bottom to a race back up.

One thing’s for sure – the news never stops – which means exchange rates never sit still for long.

Make sure any upcoming transactions are protected against the risks of sudden market movements.

Call us on 01872 487 500 to discuss your requirements and levels to aim for.

Pound, Euro & Dollar face choppy markets

While the Pound started 2021 with a bang, the upward momentum has fizzled of late.

Against both the Euro and Dollar, the Pound has tumbled from it’s near-term peaks.

The Euros recent resilience has come as a surprise too many investors, given that Europe seems to be facing a third wave of coronavirus cases.

Despite seeing falls in Pound Sterling last week, it’s not all one-way traffic.

Even in the absence of economic news, you still see daily fluctuations driven by technical trading.

That can cause erratic movements with no obvious explanation.

The point is exchange rates never move in a straight line.

There are always opportunities for buyers and sellers over different time horizons.

It pays to keep in touch, so we can work together on the best approach for your currency conversions.

If an opportunity arises where the exchange rate moves favourably for you, then we can reach out to make the most of the movement.
