UK Prime Minister told Sky last week that she didnt want to keep bots of the EU which confirmed she plans to remove the UK from the single market. The pound has been in a steep decline since. The PM has blamed the press for the pounds demise however I believe if she continues with her tone exchange rates will fall.
She is set to hold another press conference Tuesday, with the agenda simply Brexit. Many leading economists and CEOs of businesses within the UK have warned the PM that she needs to give clear direction in the upcoming weeks. HSBC leading officials have gone one step further and warned the PM that her actions could push the bank to move their headquarters to Paris, which means many jobs would be lost for the UK.
As for UK economic data since the turn of the year, figures have been strong however the pound has declined. It just shows that politics/ Brexit is outweighing economic data releases.
If you have a foreign currency to buy this month I would recommend getting in touch to discuss your options as I expect the pound will fall in value once more after the PMs press conference Tuesday.
When buying or selling the pound you also need to understand the factors that will be impacting the other currency.
