Sterling forecasts – How to play the markets

EU Summit - March 2018

GBPEUR rates has returned back to a volatile trading pattern as the new month has started. This is due to the economic data cycle starting again with a lot of updates on the economic health of the countries around the world. We have already had PMI data sets for the UK’s manufacturing sector and Service sector. These were mixed with manufacturing worse than expected and the service sector exceeding what had been expected. This is one of the reasons why the GBPEUR rates have now moved by over 2 cents between the high and the low this week already.  It shows and highlights how quickly things can change making a dramatic difference to the cost of anything from a holiday to a holiday home. Here we provide a service helping our clients through the currency maze. Informing them of information pending, forecasts, and expectations for the market so they can make an educated decision on when to trade. PLUS with access to award winning exchange rates you can be sure to save money compared to your current provider; both bank or broker. Simply put if that was not the case we would not be in business!  Feel free to test our service by getting in contact with STEVE EAKINS via hse@currencies.co.uk

So what is expected for the rest of the week.  Well today we have potentially the largest data sets for the month with interest rate decisions being published by the banks on both sides of the channel.  Any change here could be hugely significant changing prices not just for this week but for the months ahead, so if you are readying this and don’t need to look at markets for a few weeks or months it is still worth following these releases. Personally I don’t expect any change in policy at a central level but we could quite happily see commentary from the Europeans this afternoon change market values. Mario Draghi, the head of the bank follows the release with a press conference which is when this could happen. With data missing expectation across the single currency, a large Portuguese bank needing a bail out along with 3 Greek banks in the last 30 days.

If you would like an update when this hits the press please register your interest by emailing hse@currencies.co.uk with a summary of your situation and contact details.

Happy trading!
