Pound at its lowest against the Euro in 19 months, and 37 years against...

The pound is notably weaker today following the release of the latest UK Retail Sales numbers showing a surprise fall of 1.6%, which makes the economic slowdown anticipated, and likely recession ahead seem much worse than thought for Britain. As I write, GBPEUR levels have dropped to a 19-month low, with the day low at the time of writing 1.1399 on GBPEUR and 1.1350 on GBPUSD. The cable level is a 37-year low, the worst for sterling since 1985 against the US dollar. I am...

Pound rebounds following lighter than expected inflation figures

Wednesday’s trading session saw the pound on the front foot, gaining back some of the losses from the past week against a basket of currencies. Inflation data released in the morning showed price growth slowed in July for the first time since September 2021. Could this be a signal that the cost-of-living crisis has begun to ease in the UK? The Bank of England stated last month that they expect inflation to peak at 13%. The drop in price growth does pose an interesting question...

It might be argued that all this has done is stem the tide of a majorly depreciating...

Sterling exchange rates have continues to drift to kick start a new trading week, as the cost of living crisis dominates headlines across UK media.

GBP to EUR Forecast: Will Sterling See Further Losses Against the Euro?

Sterling exchange rates continue to slide – How low can the pound go?

Sterling exchange rates have seen further losses against both Euro and Dollar over the course of the trading week, as investors and speculators alike have made it clear there is a lack of confidence in the Pound at present. With the cost of living crisis bearing down on the UK economy and a prolonged recession on the cards we have started to witness a move away from the pound and it appears that it is being treated much more like a riskier currency rather than...

Pound to Euro exchange rate forecast: Sterling rates continue to suffer from Brexit uncertainty

GBP/EUR exchange rates continue to suffer due to Brexit Uncertainty The pound to euro rate has hit a 23 month low this week. This can largely attributed to the higher probability of a no deal.

Boris will now have difficulty passing through any changes in legislation as the Conservatives lost to the Lib Dems in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election. Boris now only has the majority by...

Will the pound rise or fall tomorrow? (Dayle Littlejohn)

Over the last 6 weeks GBPEUR exchange rates have risen an astonishing 6 cents when many of the leading investment banks including HSBC, Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan predicted parity would occur at some point in 2018. To put this into monetary value for clients that purchased €200,000 today compared to three weeks ago they would have paid £10,000 less. Tomorrow UK Prime Minister Theresa May is set to steal the headlines when she delivers her life after Brexit speech. The pound has increased in...

Will the pound to Euro rate rise or fall on the German election?

Expectations for the Euro are that it could well rise further on the back of the German election but of course there are no guarantees of what lies around the corner. We did expect the pound would rise on the back of the UK election but it did in fact fall and there is always this kind of element of risk with any political situation no matter how likely or unlikely an outcome is. Therefore if you are selling Euros and hoping the pound will...
