Pound Sterling has had a nice little run lately.
Against the Euro, the Pound has been trending up for the past 3 weeks.
And against the US Dollar, the Pound is getting close to 1-year highs.
No doubt there is optimism built into these rates.
The press is reporting that a Brexit trade deal may come as early as next week.
That would benefit the Pound more than the Euro, though both currencies would be expected to lift as a result.
But the gains may not last if the deal is thin on detail.
If all we get is a high-level ‘handshake’ deal (quite likely), then the reality is negotiations could continue for years to come.
That’s not going to do either currency much good.
Meanwhile, the US Dollar is grappling with election uncertainty.
We all know a smooth transition in the White House isn’t going to happen.
So expect a bumpy ride for global markets over the coming months.
