Pound breaks out to best rate of the year

A bit of good news can make all the difference…

Pound Sterling surged against all the other major currencies yesterday after the UK recorded a 6-year high in business optimism.

The knock-on effect is the Bank of England is likely to back away from any interest rate cuts – which is Pound positive.

Pound Sterling now finds itself at new highs for 2020.

It’s also a reminder that there’s more to life than Brexit.

But alas, we all know the issue of Brexit will be back in the news soon enough. And that means exchange rate volatility.

So what should You do?

If you need to buy Euros and would like to take advantage of the favourable move, consider locking-in a rate.

If you need to sell Euros at present, you need to weigh up whether you can afford for the rate to fall further.

Although the GBP/EUR rate has been higher, it’s also been a lot lower too.

Sometimes certainty is the easiest path.

Why the Pound is falling in 2020

The Pound has been losing value against the Euro in 2020 so far.

There are some worrying signs ahead that are making investors nervous.

Brexit looks certain to officially take place at the end of this month. It means trade talks with the EU will begin shortly.

The Chancellor, Sajid Javid, said on the weekend that the UK would not commit to sticking to EU rules post-Brexit.

That certainly won’t help get a deal done and has brought back fears of a hard Brexit.

The UK economy is also showing signs of weakness.

It’s got to the stage where there are rumours the Bank of England may have to cut rates soon. This could exacerbate the Pound’s decline.

We expect 2020 to be another year of Pound volatility, driven largely by Brexit news.

Negotiating a trade deal with the EU is likely to be tricky, particularly seeing Boris Johnson has set a ‘fixed’ 12-month transition deadline (it’s taken 3 years to get to this point!).

The PM may also be facing another battle on the horizon…

Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has requested the powers to hold another Scottish independence referendum. Boris has refused, but we sense this is the beginning, not the end of that battle.

There are always risks and opportunities in currency markets. It’s important to take advantage of the favourable moves while protecting the downside.

Volatility here to stay in 2020

Political events dominated last year and 2020 looks no different.

We enter the new year with the threat of war in the Middle East.

If the Iranian situation gets worse, we can expect the Pound to fall against safe-haven currencies such as the US Dollar, Japanese Yen and Swiss Franc.

No doubt Brexit will be back in the news again soon – adding to GBP exchange rate volatility.

While the election result eased fears, there is still the very real prospect of a no-deal Brexit.

Boris Johnson is determined to leave the EU at the end of 2020 – with or without a trade deal.

As always, we will look to help clients take advantage of opportunities as they arise and protect the downside.

Open from 7am – We are ready for anything tomorrow can bring

The Pound is like a coiled spring, waiting for any election news…

We are likely to get a steer on voting (exit polls) as the day goes on, but the real movement will happen when we wake up tomorrow.

Our team will be in from 7am on Friday to help you make the most of this volatile time.

While a Conservative win should boost the Pound, we suspect this has been largely priced in – unless it’s an absolute landslide.

A hung parliament remains the scary scenario that would see the Pound collapse again.

If you’re unsure what to do, you can speak to one of our traders on 01872 487 500.
