Pound up on reversal of panic
The Pound has climbed back up to 3-week highs against the Euro and Dollar.
It’s more a reversal of the panic selling than a shift in fundamentals.
In times of crisis, the Pound tends to get hit harder than currencies perceived to be safer, such as the US Dollar, Euro and Swiss Franc.
The recovery is far from convincing.
At present, the Pound is at the mercy of rotations between hope and fear.
One further implication of coronavirus is that it’s likely the Brexit transition period will be extended.
Both Boris Johnson and the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, currently have coronavirus.
Without a doubt, it’s highly uncertain times for individuals and businesses.
