I don’t need to tell you what’s dominating currency markets.
As you would expect, all currencies have become highly sensitive to the latest Coronavirus developments.
In relative terms, the Pound has not fared well.
Last week it fell to 5-month lows against the Euro and US Dollar.
That might come as a surprise given Europe has been hit harder by the virus than the UK.
But in times of turmoil, investors look for safe places to park their money.
The US Dollar, Euro, Swiss Franc and Japanese Yen are considered less risky than Pound Sterling.
That’s the perception anyway. And perception becomes reality.
It’s impossible to predict how bad things will get or when things will recover.
There are signs of stability in China – which offers hope. But it may be too late to prevent a global recession.
We appreciate that many people still have currency requirements and may be looking for guidance and support.
