Welcome Sterling Rally

GBP / EURO - Carney causes sterling rally

The pound jumped during Wednesday’s trading following Bank of England (BoE) Governor Mark Carney speaking at the European Central Bank (ECB) Forum on Wednesday in Sintra, Portugal. 

The central bank mogul had previously stated that now was not the time to begin adjusting the UK’s monetary policy following a 5-3 vote to keep interest rates on hold at the June MPC meeting. The vote took markets by surprise who had only expected one lone wolf to call for higher rates.

Now it seems as if Carney has had a change of heart, stating: ‘Some removal of monetary stimulus is likely to become necessary if the trade-off facing the MPC continues to lessen and the policy decision accordingly becomes more conventional. When the MPC last met earlier this month, my view was that given the mixed signals on consumer spending and business investment, it was too early to judge with confidence how large and persistent the slowdown in growth would prove. Moreover, with domestic inflationary pressures, particularly wages and unit labour costs, still subdued, it was appropriate to leave the policy stance unchanged at that time.’

As a result, the pound jumped by around 1.15% against the US dollar to levels of 1.2956, while the pound to euro exchange rate climbed by 0.76% to levels of around 1.1385.

Interest Rate Hike Could be Good News for Your Spending Power

Pound Jumps on Renewed BoE Rate Hike Hopes

In a surprise move for markets this week, the pound enjoyed a rally following comments from Bank of England (BoE) Chief Economist Andy Haldane, who suggested he may call for an interest rate hike ‘relatively soon’. 

This comes just a day after BoE Governor Mark Carney dampened markets with his Mansion House keynote speech where he stated that now is not the time for interest rate increases. The announcement from Carney came shortly after the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) voted 5-3 to keep rates on hold – a move that shocked investors that had expected only one hawkish policymaker to call for adjustments to the bank rate. 

Haldane said in a speech in Bradford on Wednesday: ‘Having weighed the evidence, I think that the balance of risks associated with tightening “too early”, on the one hand and “too late” on the other, has swung materially towards the latter in the past six to nine months.

‘A partial withdrawal of the additional policy insurance the MPC put in place last year would be prudent relatively soon, provided the data come in broadly as expected in the period ahead. Certainly, I think such a tightening is likely to be needed well ahead of current market expectations.’ 

Sterling v Euro Trend

The pound sterling to euro (GBP/EUR) exchange rate was trending around 0.24% higher late in Wednesday’s European session, at levels of 1.1367. GBP/EUR had reached daily highs of 1.1400.

Ahead of The Queens Speech

BoE Governor pours cold water over the pound… 

The main topic of the day was GBP reacting to comments from Governor Mark Carney in his Mansion House speech early yesterday morning. He stated that UK interest rates would not be raised any time soon, stating that ‘anaemic’ wage growth was the key factor behind this. The rally in the GBP we saw after the vote split last week was reversed and more as a result. 

With very little on the economic calendar today – any breakthroughs with ongoing talks between the Conservatives and DUP could affect the pound, however with reports suggesting the DUP have threatened to walk away from talks, this could take some time.

Watch for reactions from the Queens Speech today...

How Will Brexit Negotiations Effect the Exchange Rate

It has been another rocky week for Sterling exchange rates, with inflation on the rise and the UK still politically unstable, it really remains unclear about what happens next. Current UK PM, Theresa May is still yet to formally announce her deal with the DUP (though there seem to be rumours about talks with the Lib Dems now as well), I don't think the Pound will rebound until the Queen's speech takes place (this Wednesday). 

Bank of England's interest rate decision

Earlier last week, the Bank of England's interest rate decision caused the Pound to gain about 1% against major currencies after BoE members 5-3 on keeping rates on hold, (Expectation was a 7-1 vote)- the translation of this vote basically means that we now seem to be closer to a rate hike than ever. The reason for this is the current inflation rises we are seeing in the UK and the lackluster wage growth alongside it. My only concern is that we will be raising rates solely to curb inflation, not because our economy is stable enough for it, and this could end up badly in a year or so from now- But I will write more about this as we get closer to an actual hike. 

So... How Will Brexit Negotiations Effect the Exchange Rate

Onto this week, the most important event (Apart from Wednesday's Queen's Speech) will be Brexit negotiations formally starting on Monday. Now, the Prime Minister has explained previously she will not be constantly updating the public about how negotiations are going, however, I feel that the EU will do the complete opposite. This means that we may start to see pretty biased news coming out about these negotiations, obviously in favour of the EU, which could cause the Pound to weaken from time to time. Now it is also important to point out that these negotiations will take at least 2 years, so Monday is not a one-day event- it is ongoing volatility. 

FC Exchange

Short term, we will see the Pound move around 2-3% up or down due to political events and economic data, however, the long-term move really does rely on Brexit negotiations, so the Pound will be extremely sensitive to any news that comes out surrounding this. 

This could potentially be a positive week for the Pound, (Ignoring Brexit headlines), however, it is exactly these headlines that could keep Sterling subdued even if the Prime Minister manages to organise her Government effectively. 

So if you need to buy or sell sterling and would like to be kept up to date with all the latest data releases and exchange rate movements then feel free to contact myself Ben Amrany. If you are buying or selling a house in France we will make sure your monies are in the right place at the right time, we work hand in hand with you and Cle France.

Weekly Currency Market Report 19.06.2017

UK | Sterling

BoE Policymakers Split on Interest Rates

Last week, the pound began under pressure following Theresa May’s failure to win a majority vote at the UK general election. With Brexit negotiations about to begin, there is a cloud of uncertainty and fear that internal conflicts of interests between parties will hinder the UK’s ability to agree favourable new terms with the rest of the EU.

UK retail data also disappointed but the pound enjoyed a more positive end to the week after the Bank of England (BoE) meeting on Thursday. The UK left monetary policy frozen at its loosest levels on record but there was a highly unexpected level of disagreement amongst policymakers. Following the previous 7-1 vote, UK inflation levels have continued to soar. With pressure on the BoE to act, three members voted to hike interest rates, leaving a 5-3 split. Thanks to hawks Kristin Forbes, Ian McCafferty and Michael Saunders, the central bank saw its closest voting split in almost a decade which has helped to support the softer pound.

The week ahead is quiet in terms of economic data, meaning a lot of the market’s focus will be on the Brexit negotiations which begin today. 

Europe | Euro

Single Currency Performing Well on GBP and USD Softness

The euro has performed well of late and has been the main benefactor of USD and GBP weakness. Last week kicked off with the release of better than expected German ZEW data, Wednesday saw German inflation data remain at 1.5% but Eurozone manufacturing data did drop from the previous reading. A light data week for Europe ended when Eurozone inflation numbers printed in line with expectations. 

With a quiet week ahead in terms of eco-stats, all eyes will be on the Brexit negotiations between the UK and Europe. 

FC Exchange

USA | US Dollar

Will Trump Developments Cause USD to Fall?

The greenback performed well last week and recovered part of its recent losses against the pound and euro. The main-focus was firmly on Wednesday’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting which saw the US raise interest rates for the second time this year despite a drop-in inflation. The rate hike was largely expected and therefore priced into the market, but it does keep the US on track for the three or four rate hikes forecast for 2017 which are largely built into the dollar’s value. There was also a drop in oil inventories which helped to support the dollar.

A light week again in regards to data could the see focus back on Donald Trump who has endured a bumpy start to his presidency. He has seemingly survived the testimony provided by former FBI director James Comey, but the fallout could be fatal and shadow his presidency for years to come. Any further allegations towards the president could cause additional volatility for the greenback.

Other

GBP/NZD Tumbles 7% 

The GBP/NZD rate has fallen over 7% since reaching 1.9 last month. The antipodean nation has performed well considering the overall drop in commodity prices and all eyes will be on this week’s Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) interest rate meeting on Wednesday. Most analysts expect the rate to be kept on hold as the RBNZ will be fearful of the currency appreciating whilst commodity prices remain under pressure.
