Currency Market News - Pound Collapses on Brexit Chaos

The PM’s much-awaited Brexit plan is in turmoil:

The pound has plunged today against both the Euro and the Dollar.

After more resignations from her Cabinet, Theresa May’s is losing her grip on power.

It is rumoured Conservative backbenchers may be about to force a vote of no-confidence in her.

Looking ahead, volatility in the Pound is likely to intensify as the political storm unfolds.

In fact, a leading analyst has forecast that the Pound could fall by a further 4% from here.

If you have GBP exposure, doing nothing in times like this is speculation.

If you would like to mitigate your risk and secure a rate of exchange before further news is released, please get in touch today.

Sterling Hits 5 Month High

Just a Quick Heads-Up For You…

Yesterday the Pound spiked against the Euro to its highest level in 5 months.

In fact, since the beginning of September alone you are 4% better off.

On a £100,000 transfer, that’s a gain of £4,000.

Of course, given the volatile nature of currency markets, the situation may change quickly.

At present, the Pound continues to be held hostage by Brexit. We live in highly uncertain times.

If you are looking to buy Euros with Sterling, you might want to take advantage of recent movement and secure a favourable rate of exchange.

GBP: Sterling rises on rumours

According to the Sunday Times, Theresa May has come up with a new plan to break the Brexit deadlock and allow the UK to remain within the EU customs union.

The government has officially claimed the report is simply “speculation”.

Any deal with Brussels would need to win approval from the British Parliament – a difficult task as politicians on both sides remain deeply divided.

With a light calendar this week, the Pound will be highly susceptible to Brexit rumours and speculation.

EUR: Coming unstuck?

It’s only 2 months before the European Central Bank is meant to begin winding down its bond-buying programme – a remnant from the financial crisis.

But traders are starting to wonder whether this is actually going to happen. The EU has lost economic momentum and there is growing friction with Italy over its proposed budget.

Speaking of Italy, the war of words continues. Over the weekend, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker threatened the Italians saying “For the first time someone is saying the (EU budget) rules are of no interest to us. That will have consequences”. The longer this drags on, the more it will damage the Euro.

USD: Chinese whispers

The Dollar has been seesawing on rumours surrounding a new China-US trade deal.

The usual Trump-style negotiations are taking place – a combination of opportunities and threats (the old carrot and stick). The President said a lot of progress has been made so far but also got one of his spokespeople to warn he would “pull the trigger" on additional tariffs on China, depending of course on how talks go.

Meanwhile the US is focused on mid-term elections, so this week is all about politics not economics.

Beaujolais Nouveau Time is Almost Here

Like Wine? You Gotta Try the Beaujolais Nouveau!

It’s November, and for those of us in the know, the 3rd Thursday of the month is a big deal. This day marks the release of the Beaujolais Nouveau wine!

South of Burgundy is a wine region known as Beaujolais. The climate is a bit warmer than Burgundy, so the Pinot Noir grapes popular in Burgundy don’t thrive so well in Beaujolais. That’s ok, though – there’s another grape described as a cousin to Pinot that grows very well in the area: the Gamay grape.

The Beaujolais region had always produced a wine celebrating the end of the harvest – basically, they’d make a wine, and it would be aged only a few weeks before being consumed. It wasn’t until World War II that this young wine could be purchased outside of the region. Marketers saw the potential in selling this wine elsewhere, and in the 1970s, the release of the wine had attracted a lot of media coverage. By the 1980s, the wine could be purchased in other countries in Europe, and in 1990s, it made its way to North America and Asia.

Beaujolais Nouveau

Fun fact: La récolte (the harvest) of these grapes is all done by hand! This can take up to 35,000 people working 15-20 days!

I know what you’re thinking – wine gets better with age, so why bother having some that’s only sat for a few weeks? The shorter the wine’s fermentation process, the fruitier it will be. Plus, this quick process means the wine will be less tannin. Qu’est-ce que c’est ? (What’s that?) You know how sometimes when you drink wine, your mouth tastes a bit dry afterward? That’s tannin.

These two characteristics combined produce a drinkable wine that pairs with almost anything. I was in Whole Foods the other day with my friend, and in the wine section, they were passing out samples of this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau. Another customer tried it and commented on how well it went down and how normally he doesn’t like wine. This makes a very nice intro wine!

I’ll drink to that.
