Pound Sterling Forecast, what we can expect for the pound?
Getting the best pound to euro rate is about being prepared and tracking key economic data and information.
“Hope”, is not usually a good strategy. Relying purely on “luck” and hoping that the market will magically go your way can often lead to disappointment.
Just because you cannot totally predict the direction on rates, doesn’t mean you should just give up and accept your fate.
To help my clients get the best rates, I take the time to fully understand:
– Their timescales. How long do you have?
– Their attitude to risk. What type of volatility are you prepared to accept?
– What are your goals? Do you have a target rate or budget, how realistic is it?
It is only be being honest about the answers to the above, and analysing the latest market intelligence, you can truly devise a strategy.
What events will move my rates ahead on pound sterling rates?
Tomorrow sees the latest Eurozone Interest Rate decision, with the decision at 13.15 GMT and the Press Conference due after 13.45.
