Following a fall in Sterling exchange rates yesterday we have seen the Pound hold firm against both the Euro and the Dollar which is good news for those clients looking to send money overseas. The political uncertainty in the UK and the lack of growth for the UK economy has meant that confidence in Sterling is low which has resulted in GBP-EUR exchange rates falling. However, it is difficult to see why so much confidence is flooding back to Europe, they have incredibly high unemployment and many of their economies are in recession so it is not unthinkable that Sterling Euro exchange rates could rebound back up however how long it will take for such a correction is unknown and of course like all things in the curerncy markets not a certainty!
