Brexit Chaos - What now for Pound Sterling?

It’s the biggest defeat for a sitting British government in history…

Theresa May’s Brexit plan is dead and buried. Her own party made sure of that.

But what now?

The fact is there are so many different scenarios that could unfold from here.

Even if the PM survives today’s vote of no confidence, there is no clear path ahead.

The EU seems unwilling to compromise.

Labour is pushing for a second referendum.

Her own party is deeply divided.

Volatility in the Pound is inevitable against a background of huge uncertainty and increased risk.

We could be facing some big moves in the coming weeks and months.

A no-deal Brexit is perhaps the biggest threat of all. ING predicts Sterling would hit parity with the Euro if that happens.

Or politicians could do what they do best – and kick the can down the road – extending the deadline.

While a delay in Brexit would buy time, it will further damage the UK economy.

For those with GBP exposure, we are closely watching events and market moves throughout the day.

With so many possibilities, Pound Sterling faces a period of unprecedented uncertainty.

One thing we can do however is help you secure a rate of exchange and mitigate your ongoing currency risk.

The Quiet before the Storm

Markets are eerily quiet today (the quiet before the storm).

Thinking of buying or selling abroad soon, then it may be a good idea to set up an 'automatic limit order' given we do not even know when the result of tomorrow's vote on May's Brexit bill is going to be announced.

In the hours after we may see some sharp volatility whilst the London markets are closed but there is a solution for you.

One way to protect yourself from any adverse movements or indeed, capitalise on any sharp positive movements is through the use of 'automatic limit orders', a bit like setting a limit when bidding on E-Bay for something you want but only at a certain price.

Put simply, there are three types of limit orders available in the market:

Limit Order:

Target an exchange rate higher than the current rate and we’ll make your transfer automatically if the market reaches that level.

Stop Loss Order:

Control the risk of an exchange rate suddenly falling by setting a 'worst-case' rate.

An OCO Order:

A combination of a limit and a stop order. The first one to hit the target rate triggers the order in its entirety.

Sterling set for a wild week

The Brexit saga continues…

Tomorrow evening Parliament will vote on Theresa May’s Brexit plan.

It is widely expected she will lose.

But what happens next is anyone’s guess.

Delay in Brexit?

New Prime Minister?

Second referendum?

Brexit never happens?

With so many possibilities, Pound Sterling faces a period of unprecedented uncertainty.

One thing we can do however is help you secure a rate of exchange and mitigate your ongoing currency risk.

Enabling our dream to become a reality

We have just completed on a holiday home in 'Pays de la Loire' and are most grateful to the support and advice offered by Sharon at Cle France.

Our initial contact was enquiring about two properties and Sharon was most prompt in arranging weekend viewing for us with the two different French estate agents.

We instantly fell in love with one of the properties and quickly had our offer accepted. Sharon suggested speaking to Key Currency and we followed her advice. They provided a prompt and efficient service and with the fluctuating money markets, gave us peace of mind that we'd know exactly how much the property would cost (with our funds safely looked away in a holding account.)

During the buying process Sharon quickly answered emails with clear and useful answers to our queries. In fact friends have been so impressed with our "lack of stress" in buying a house in France and the service offered by Cle France that they have started conversations about doing the same as us. Obviously I'll be passing on Sharon's contact details.

Many thanks for your advice and support and for enabling "our dream" to become a reality.

Sarah Turner.

Psst - Have you seen our "Meet the Team" page?

Buying a Chateau, Manor House, Farmhouse, Cottage, Holiday Home, Lake or just a Plot of land in France is easy with Cle France, You can do the same, it is easy for you because WE guide YOU through the French Property Buying Process from the very start to completion and beyond!

And as several of our clients say "Follow your heart and make the move"!

Thank You Cle France

Currency News – Sterling Outlook for 2019

Sterling begins 2019 at an interesting juncture.

While there is plenty of pessimism already priced in, there are also some clear risks that lie ahead.

The fact is no one really knows for sure how Brexit will play-out from here.

The bookmakers are always an interesting source of insight as people back their opinions with their money.

Interestingly, the odds show that the UK is highly likely to go ahead and leave the EU this year but also that Jeremy Corbyn is most likely to be Britain’s next Prime Minister!

If both of these significant events unfold then Sterling is in for a volatile ride in 2019.

It seems currency markets still crave the idea of Brexit not materialising. Any news that suggests a soft exit or no exit at all, is taken as good news for Sterling.

But is this realistic? Or is it just the City of London desperately trying to hold on to its dominant position in European financial markets?

What we do know is that some major decisions are fast approaching.

The Parliament’s Brexit vote is scheduled for the week of 14th January (next week). Surely, this is the do-or-die moment for Theresa May’s premiership?

For those with GBP exposure, it’s important to keep up with the latest news and events.

Please get in touch as we can help structure a plan that mitigates your currency risk.
