What if investors are wrong about the Pound?

Sterling’s nice little run has continued into this week.

As expected, Coronavirus and Brexit dominate the headlines.

While the vaccine progress is great news, the more pressing issue for the Pound is Brexit.

London and Brussels resume their negotiations this week.

Most investors believe a last-minute deal will get done.

It’s an interesting dilemma for the Pound.

A tilt to the upside is the most likely outcome.

But if investors are wrong (and it wouldn’t be the first time), then a “no deal Brexit” would send the Pound crashing down.

Is the Pound headed for new highs?

Pound Sterling has had a nice little run lately.

Against the Euro, the Pound has been trending up for the past 3 weeks.

And against the US Dollar, the Pound is getting close to 1-year highs.

No doubt there is optimism built into these rates.

The press is reporting that a Brexit trade deal may come as early as next week.

That would benefit the Pound more than the Euro, though both currencies would be expected to lift as a result.

But the gains may not last if the deal is thin on detail.

If all we get is a high-level ‘handshake’ deal (quite likely), then the reality is negotiations could continue for years to come.

That’s not going to do either currency much good.

Meanwhile, the US Dollar is grappling with election uncertainty.

We all know a smooth transition in the White House isn’t going to happen.

So expect a bumpy ride for global markets over the coming months.

Alert - Vaccine news lifts Sterling, but why?

The vaccine announcement from Pfizer is good news for the world in general.

It is also good news for the UK.

Pound sterling is expected to be a major beneficiary of a vaccine.

This is because the UK has struggled more than most with managing the pandemic.

Put simply, a vaccine could make a bigger difference to the British economy relative to other countries.

The Pound (GBP) is currently sitting near 1-month highs against the Euro and US Dollar.

Of course, nothing is static in currency markets.

On the horizon is the US election legal battle and the Brexit deadline.

They’re not going away…just simmering.

What should you do?

You may consider the rebound in Sterling as an opportunity to secure an improved rate and mitigate Brexit risk.

For those that need to sell Dollars or Euros, current rates are still at historically attractive levels.

Pound Sterling in a surprising uptrend

There’s plenty going on right now…

The US election takes centre stage over the coming days and it could be decisive, in which case the ramifications for currencies will be immediate.

Or it could be a cliff hanger and trigger months of legal action.

Like all big global events, the best thing you can do is be prepared to take advantage, should rates move in your favour.

Make sure to register with us, and then you are ready if need be.

It takes only a couple of minutes.

What's Going on in the UK.

The Pound has somehow avoided losses so far in reaction to Lockdown “Part Two”.

Both GBP/EUR and GBP/USD have gained ground in the past few sessions.

It certainly won’t help get a Brexit deal over the line.

The looming deadline will be less than a month away once lockdown ends.

It all seems to point to a volatile end to the year.

Protecting our clients against adverse market movements is part of our service.

Pound turns positive for the week

It’s a topsy turvy time for GBP to Euro.

The market seems to be ignoring economic news at the moment as we await Brexit developments.

With only 10 weeks to go, there is still hope that a last-minute deal can be struck.

Some analysts are stating that they see limited upside in Sterling even if a deal can be reached.

The wider problem is the outlook for the UK economy.

The Bank of England is considering negative interest rates.

But we have no historical example of a country combining negative rates with a large trade and budget deficit.

Investors are scratching their heads as to what currency impact that would have.

Do three negatives make a positive?

Lingering in the background is also the imminent US election.

That will also bring uncertainty for global politics and currency pairs going forward.

There is always an element of uncertainty in exchange rates, but right now we face an abnormal degree of complex events with unpredictable outcomes.

Amidst this situation, you may consider locking-in a rate for peace of mind.
