GBPCHF rates hit near 3-month highs

ECB decision fails to inspire the Euro

The European Central Bank (ECB) has today confirmed the expected news that yes ultimately they will be looking to taper their QE program. There is a strong belief that the ECB will in the future withdraw the stimulus that they have been injecting into financial markets which have been essentially propping up the Eurozone. With high unemployment and low growth the ECB were forced to act, is now the right time to be scaling back though? In essence the ECB have been very positive today...

Will GBPEUR hit parity?

This is the big question at the moment on investors lips as the pound continues to struggle and the Euro continues to gain in value. Overall there is an expectation that the pound will eventually rise but with the strength of the pound being inextricably linked to the developments on Brexit, we could be waiting quite some time! In the absence of any new news the pound will likely continue to remain weak, investors will be very cautious over the UK and the pound until...

What can we expect next for the GBPEUR exchange rate?

The pound will likely remain on the weaker side now as the market braces itself for the next developments with Brexit. We know already that the pound is struggling to make many gains, it really does appear that things could get worse before they get better. If you have a transfer to make then getting the best rate is key to maximising your position. So just how can I maximise my position and what should I be doing to ensure I don't get caught...
GBPEUR rate remains steady as markets await the Autumn Budget

Come on the pound!

It is really getting quite annoying now just seeing the pound lose value week after week. I mean don't get me wrong, we know why it is happening, but it just seems to have a real dampener on the general mood in the UK! Of course this is great news for anyone holding Euros (or another currency) and looking to buy sterling. But with the UK being a net importer (we buy more from overseas than we sell) a weaker pound has a net...

What can we expect next for GBPEUR?

The GBPEUR exchange rate has been sliding ever since the UK election result and quite frankly there has been very little on offer to help any Euro buyers, the only news to help was the prospect of the UK raising interest rates. This has now been firmly quashed by the Bank of England and the only thing really for Euro buyers to look forward to is something unexpected. If you need to buy Euros with pounds I think you need to be carefully analysing...

GBP/EUR – Is parity a possibility? (Daniel Johnson)

MPC vote change weakens Sterling Sterling continues to fall in value against the Euro. The latest catalyst in it's fall, the UK interest rate decision. The interest rate is closely linked to inflation. Inflation is currently a major concern for the UK at one point bordering on 3%. Since then we have seen a drop to 2.6%, some believe this to be a negative for the UK economy. I however disagree, inflation is only beneficial if average wage growth is moving at a similar pace,...

What can we expect for the rest of the week on the GBPEUR exchange...

Tomorrow is a vital day for the pound to Euro exchange rate as we get closer to understanding a bit more news form the Bank of England. Expectations are for a very busy day for the pound as markets digest exactly what we can expect from the outcome. There is a belief in some quarters the pound could rise rise but ultimately the recent fall in Inflation I feel makes any positive news for sterling much less likely. The rates could move quickly in either...

Super Thursday set to cause volatility on GBP/EUR (Daniel Johnson)

Sterling is a very bad spot at present. I find it particularly annoying considering how strong the UK economy was before Cameron's gambit to hold a referendum. Politicians with their own agendas has caused this monumental fall for the pound. May and Boris are also responsible for the current situation. Inflation is now a major concern, at one point it was as high as 2.9%. The latest data showed a drop to 2.6% which caused the pound to fall in value. I am of the...

Sterling has little chance of Strengthening (Daniel Johnson)

Pound Problems Sterling is in a terrible spot at present, languishing in the 1.11s on GBP/EUR at present. There are so many catalysts for Sterling's weakness it will be very difficult to see any significant rally. We are now starting to witness the damage caused by the vote to leave the EU. Inflation in the UK has been on a rapid rise of late hitting 2.9%. There was the chance that the Bank of England were going to raise interest rates should the rise continue....

Inflation data causes Sterling weakness (Daniel Johnson)

UK Inflation influences GBP/EUR Investors are showing concern at the rapid rise in inflation. The uncertainty regarding Brexit negotiations has made  GBP/EUR drop to 1.1170 of late. The weak value of Sterling has caused imports to become more expensive. Importers are then raising the value of their goods up and these price increases are then passed on to the consumer. If consumers become reluctant to pay these higher prices this is when we could see a slow down in the UK economy. It is important to...
