Buying euros opportunity? (Steve Eakins)

GBPEUR rate remains steady as markets await the Autumn Budget

GBPEUR rates have rallied today over a month high on the back of better than expected data from the US.  Some are suggesting that the data has been lifted in the run up to the election, but as the data shows a better picture for the US, risk appetite builds.  So traders in the market have been happier to take risk and have been buying riskier currencies.  This change in habits has created strength for the likes of the NZD, AUD and GBP.

In summary this week GBPEUR rates has had a high/low movement of 1%, resulting in an extra cost of over £2,000 on a €200,000 purchase. Even though this sounds like a lot, this week has actually had a smaller FX range than the last 3.  Next week many experts predict a range closer to 2.5%, so anyone with a euro need should note that buying poorly in the next 7 days could cost you an additional £5,000 compared to buying €200,000 well.
