Another fairly quiet day on the markets today for those with an interest in buying or selling Sterling, however tomorrow I would expect to see a little more volatility.
The last working day of the month can lead to sharp movements without warning as we see month end flows…. basically companies and funds netting off positions in advance of a new month. Quite often on the last working day of the month Sterling can become quite volatile against all major currencies as we see this happen , so it is important if you have a fairly imminent transfer to make that you keep in close contact with a proactive broker.
Here at Pound Sterling Forecast we do not only give you up to date market information but we can help you with exchanges too. We can get the very top levels of exchange on the markets due to our vast buying power and we pride ourselves on helping our clients with the timing of when they exchange their currency. If you would like me (Daniel Wright) the creator of this site and a Director at Currencies.co.uk to help you with a transaction or merely to give you a quote then feel free to email me personally on email@example.com and I will be more than happy to get straight in touch.
Economic data of note tomorrow is European inflation data, out at 10:00am (expectations are for a jump to 0.4%) which may give the Euro a little boost if matching that figure. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it fall short and to offer an opportunity to purchase Euros at a slightly better rate.
Later in the day we have U.S Growth figures – These are due out at 13:30pm and expectations for this is a level of 0.8%. This release can impact all major currencies as they may alter global attitude to risk.
For those with a Canadian Dollar interest we have growth figures for Canada at exactly the same time so be aware we may see a little volatility shortly after this period.
If you are looking to exchange any currency in the near future then it is well worth getting in touch with me. You can call me during U.K office hours on 01494 787 478 (Please ask for Daniel Wright) or you are welcome to email me with a description of what you need to do on Djw@currencies.co.uk and I will be more than happy to put together a game plan together with you.
Sterling has had a fairly negative day against most major currencies during trading today even though there was very little for the markets to feed off in terms of economic data.
To be honest there is not a huge amount out during the course of the week which would generally lead to a quieter and range bound market but due to much thinner levels of trading and lots of positions being closed off for the year this is and will not be the case for the next week or so.
Late December can be a tough time for anyone looking to buy or sell foreign currency for their business or to deal with a property purchase or sale as the markets can swing quite rapidly without warning which of course can end up costing a large sum of money.
Large funds or companies may well net off their positions to end the year and even smaller tranches of money moving around can have a much bigger impact on exchange rates as the levels of trading are just so much thinner than usual.
One of the reasons for today’s movements may be down to London fixes – This is where benchmark rates and gold prices are decided (usually at 4pm London time) and can have an impact on exchange rates shortly before and after the time it is agreed. More information on this can be found by clicking here if you are interested.
If you are looking to buy or sell foreign currency in the coming days, weeks or months then it is well worth having not just any broker on your side, but a proactive one. We help clients exchange anything from £1000 to multi million Pound transactions all around the world day in day out and not only offer rates better than elsewhere but we also keep our clients well aware of any opportunities that come their way should we see a big shift in their favour or against them.

All the writers on this site work for a currency brokerage with a turnover of half a billion pounds a year that has won numerous awards both for rates of exchange and customer service so we thought we would make you aware in case you didn’t know.
I have personally had nearly 5000 new clients get in touch with me through the site over the years and for anyone exchanging over £10,000 there has not been one that we have not been able to make a saving for, so if you are in the process of buying a property overseas, emigrating, buying a car or your company carries out large currency exchanges then it would be well worth you contacting me personally even if you feel you are currently getting a good deal through another broker as more often than not you can still do a lot better.
If you are using the bank then it is essential that you get in touch as it is very rare a banks exchange rate is anywhere near what we can offer as a company.

Sterling is performing well as UK GDP pointed to further improvements in the UK economy and we get back to pre-crisis levels. The unbalanced recovery is a concern and it appears unlikely the pound will just keep rising!
With the uncertainty surrounding Greece now removed from the market attention has shifted to wider concerns on interest rates and economic recovery. Personally I cannot see the UK raising interest rates any time soon but the pound appears likely to reach to the data as it has done in the last week.
I think it is really important to understand your options when buying currency with us so here is the information!
1 – Store currency safely in a client account. You don’t need a foreign bank account to buy foreign exchange with us! You can buy Euros and we can keep them here until you need them sending out perfect for business or overseas property investors who don’t yet have a foreign bank account. You can split payments too. eg buy 200k euros and send out 20k euros for deposit leaving remainder here until a foreign bank is open or you need sending out. This means you can buy whilst rates are good not just when you need the currency or have opened a foreign bank account.
2 – We can offer a forward contract to fix today’s rates for up to one year in advance useful for business and anyone buying a large volume of currency. You pay a deposit and choose how far forward. Eg you could fix 300k euros for 3 months and draw it down after 8 weeks if you needed them earlier. Again you don’t need a foreign bank account open to buy with us and can buy or lock in to a price whilst rates are good.
3 – Limit Order’s target a rate you wish to buy currency at in the future. eg 1.60 on GBPUSD. You give us a firm order and we place it into the market. Once the rate is achievable we buy at your desired rate.
If you need to buy or sell the pound understanding all of your options and what is going on in the market is the best way to minimise your exposure. For more information at no cost or obligation please speak to me Jonathan on email@example.com. Just email a quick outline of your position and your situation and I can hopefully offer some useful information to help you get a better deal.
I look forward to hearing from you!
