Are You looking beyond Covid

What’s driving exchange rates right now?

Investors are looking beyond Covid…

Most of the recent news about exchange rates is centred on politics or the economy.

In the UK, there is an immediate risk from the Scottish elections.

Talk of another Scottish referendum would be extremely damaging for the Pound.

In Europe, economic sentiment is at its highest level since September 2018, despite the threat of a third Covid wave.

And in the US, a string of positive data, including GDP growth and falling jobless claims, has given the Dollar a boost. The Federal Reserve is even considering an interest rate rise as the US economy could overheat.

Basically, there are signs of recovery across the board.

Currencies have gone from a race to the bottom to a race back up.

One thing’s for sure – the news never stops – which means exchange rates never sit still for long.

Make sure any upcoming transactions are protected against the risks of sudden market movements.

Pound, Euro & Dollar face choppy markets

While the Pound started 2021 with a bang, the upward momentum has fizzled of late.

Against both the Euro and Dollar, the Pound has tumbled from it’s near-term peaks.

The Euros recent resilience has come as a surprise too many investors, given that Europe seems to be facing a third wave of coronavirus cases.

Despite seeing falls in Pound Sterling last week, it’s not all one-way traffic.

Even in the absence of economic news, you still see daily fluctuations driven by technical trading.

That can cause erratic movements with no obvious explanation.

The point is exchange rates never move in a straight line.

There are always opportunities for buyers and sellers over different time horizons.

It pays to keep in touch, so we can work together on the best approach for your currency conversions.

If an opportunity arises where the exchange rate moves favourably for you, then we can reach out to make the most of the movement.

Pound attempts recovery after 2-month lows

The Pound has found some support again in recent days.

It comes after an April sell-off saw the Pound fall to 2-months lows against the Euro.

For a while now, the GBP/EUR rate has reflected the ‘race of the rollout’.

Opposing forces are driving the Euro. The vaccine rollout is being ramped up, but that is being offset by the third wave of the virus.

The Pound is in a different place.

The UK has already undergone a rapid rollout, and the market now expects a swift economic recovery from here.

It means investors will increasingly be watching economic data coming out of the UK (jobs, growth, inflation etc).

That’s what investors used to do before Brexit and a global pandemic took over the market.

The risk for the Pound is whether it’s ‘priced for perfection’ and is susceptible to any setbacks – such as a rise in infections as rules are relaxed and people come out to play.

I would expect a bumpy ride ahead.

These are far from ordinary times!

If you would like some guidance on rates and timing, why not get in touch.

Euro jumps to 8-week high as Pound stumbles

The Euro has finally staged a comeback.

Over the past week or so, it’s enjoyed its best run against both GBP and the Dollar so far this year.

It’s not a coincidence.

Two key pieces of news were released.

A report from the EU stated that most member states will have “sufficient vaccine supplies to immunise the majority of people by the end of June”.

What’s more, minutes from the European Central Bank’s latest meeting stated that the eurozone is recovering “faster than expected”.

Given the Euro’s poor performance in recent months, any good news is significant because of the negative expectations built into the exchange rate.

Of course, the UK and US continue apace with their vaccine rollout – but that’s effectively already baked into current rates.

Given the movements in rates over recent weeks, working with us closely can be beneficial in terms of optimising the rate you achieve.

Make sure any upcoming transactions are protected against the risks of sudden market movements.

Get in touch with us on 01872 487 500 to discuss your specifics.

Pounds jumps to a 12-month high

A bit more volatility has crept into exchange rates lately.

Market data in the UK over the last week was a mixed bag, leading to opportunities for both buying and selling Pound Sterling at different times.

Some divergence in leading currency pairs is also developing.

Against the Euro, the Pound has the upper hand, sitting at a 1-year high.

But against the US Dollar, the Pound is losing ground, hovering near a 1-month low.

Part of our service is to monitor news and currency forecasts; where risks or opportunities could arise.

Together we can discuss a plan and find a solution to suit your situation.
