Pound Sterling Forecast – Could the Pound Fall Lower Still?

Sterling Forecast and What to Expect this Week

“Called off” Brexit Trade Talks End Pound to Euro Rally

Pound to euro surged 2 cents from Monday’s low to end the week just shy of 1.11 but the pound’s advances were once again halted by Brexit. The currency pair started the week at a fresh 3 month low after Boris Johnson confirmed in a telephone conversation to Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki that the UK would accept a bare-bones Australia type deal. This immediately sent pound to euro lower as Australia does not have a Free Trade Agreement with the EU. Australia and...

Pound Sterling Forecast – GBP Bounces Back But For How Long?

Last week saw the pound sterling forecast rebound from the most recent lows, with a dip and rise against the Euro down to 1.09 on the interbank rate, and rising back to 1.11 interbank rates. On GBPUSD rates, we have seen a decline down to the 1.2256 mark, but then a rebound back over the 1.25 level too.

Pound to Euro Ends Week Higher

Sterling ends the week higher breaking over 1.11 for pound to euro and 1.2470 for pound to US dollar after an initial poor start to the week.

Pound Sterling Forecast – Will GBP continue to bounce back?

The pound sterling forecast has continued to rebound off some of the more recent lows rising to 1.1095 so far today on the GBPEUR interbank rate, and 1.2505 on the GBPUSD interbank rate. Such levels seemed very distant only a few days ago when fresh lows of 1.09 on GBPEUR and 1.2256 GBPUSD were confirming the fears and expectations that sterling was not performing well. Whether this recovery is the beginning of a fresh spike or a taking of profits by investors, following many weeks...
Pound Forecast: Will GBP Keep Climbing Next Week?

Pound Sterling Rates Rally on Month End Flows

Pound to euro and pound to dollar rallied almost 0.5 percent during yesterday’s trading as month-end flows caused a rebalancing in the market. Fund managers typically look to rebalance their books at month-end, and this often leads to excessive movements in currency pairs. Pound to euro surged above 1.10 and pound to dollar above 1.23 on the interbank exchange, and both pairs have consolidated above those levels this morning. Sterling has been sold quite heavily over the past couple of weeks and yesterday saw some...
Pound to Euro Rate Remains Vulnerable

Why is the Pound Falling Today – Currency Forecast

The sterling exchange rate has once again started falling against most major currencies, which has begged many to ask the question and to why the pound seems to be so out of fashion at present? If you look at the core principles surrounding currency strength there is an almost immediate answer, in my view a currency moves off of two key factors; economic performance and political stability. You could argue that acts of terror and acts of god also have an impact but not so...

Pound to Euro: COVID-19 Fears and Brexit Talks Weigh on GBP

The pound to euro and US dollar rate is once again under pressure, as global sentiment appears to be in decline and the risks of a second wave of Coronavirus appears to also be rising.

Pound to Euro Falls Below 1.10 Amid Brexit Uncertainty

Pound to euro slipped below 1.10 during Friday’s trading as Brexit uncertainty and the prospect of an L-shaped recovery weighed on the currency pair. Pound to euro had remained rangebound between 1.10-1.11 but as investors turned their focus to UK domestic issues, the pound slid.

Brexit was always going to be an Achilles heel for...

Pound Sterling Forecast: will COVID-19 Keep GBP Weak?

The pound has finished another week testing lower points and on the back foot, as a continued range of uncertainties weigh on sentiment toward the pound sterling forecast. First and foremost, the lack of clarity surrounding Brexit and an underlying viewpoint that no-deal is a real possibility. And further, a continued deterioration in the global economic outlook as new cases and deaths at the hands of the Coronavirus sees spikes in the numbers, causing global confidence to falter.
