Big Swings bring Big Opportunities

Pound Sterling has been having some big swings against the Euro over the past fortnight.

You can see why given the recent news.

The UK fuel crisis is a potential problem for Sterling, but the Euro has its own problems.

Germany, the EU’s biggest economy, is facing uncertainty with their political powerhouse, Angela Merkel, stepping aside on Sunday after a 16-year reign.

Volatility isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

It can provide an opportunity for both buyers and sellers of Pounds.

Looking ahead, the key news this week is the Bank of England meeting on Thursday.

There’s no expected move in rates, but the focus will be on rising inflation and the tapering of stimulus.

With volatility on the rise, timing matters more than ever.

As always, we are keeping a close eye on currencies, and can alert you to the best opportunities as they arise.

Pound in the spotlight this week

The Pound has started this week on relatively firm footing.

With Covid cases receding in the UK, investors are focusing on the recovery story.

The IMF recently revised its 2021 growth forecast for the UK up to 7% - which is the joint highest growth rate of the major advanced economies (along with the USA).

As things improve, both the UK and US central banks are making noises about tightening their ultra-loose policies.

Speaking of which, the Bank of England meets this Thursday for their monthly chat.

Central bank meetings can be big market movers even if nothing actually happens. That’s because ‘forward guidance’ (hints about the future) is a critical part of their mandate. This will no doubt put the Pound in the spotlight tomorrow.

With so much global uncertainty, there is plenty that could change in the weeks ahead.

For those with currency requirements, it pays to be ready to make the most of opportunities as they arise.

Our team can guide you on current market trends and the best rates available.

Pound Sterling jumps to 2 week high

The Pound has reasserted its relative strength this week.

Against the Euro and the Dollar, GBP now sits at 2-week highs.

The removal of Covid restrictions has flipped from a negative to a positive catalyst as receding new cases have provided support for the Pound.

With a slim economic calendar this week, we expect currency markets to focus on the spread of the delta variant.

It’s worth noting that sometimes you get surprising moves during lightly traded markets.

If you have upcoming currency requirements, it’s best to have a plan in place so you’re ready to take advantage of any opportunities.
