Inflation seems to be on everyone’s lips at the moment.
Only yesterday, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey predicted “hyperinflation” was on the way.
And the Bank of England recently confirmed it will “have to act” on inflation.
How does that effect currencies?
Well, exchange rates are very sensitive to interest rate changes.
Since the 1990s, we have had very little movement in interest rates. It’s almost become a ‘forgotten risk’.
But with the Bank of England dropping hints about rate rises, it’s giving the Pound a lift. Higher interest rates lift a currencies value.
Against the Euro, the Pound is sitting near 20-month highs.
Against the US Dollar, the Pound has also made gains in the last few weeks, but the overall trend is less clear as the US Federal Reserve is also talking about inflationary risks ahead.
