Exchange Rate Forecast

Today is the last day of the month and it is another quiet day for economic data with the noteable German Retail Sales already announced and showing worse than expected by some considerable distance which has pushed Sterling Euro exchange rates back over the 1.23 mark on the interbank level. The rest of this morning is likely to remain quiet with the main focus this afternoon on the other side of the Pond with Canadian Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures released at 13:30 and then speaches from 3 members of the Fed later in the afternoon which may have an impact on the US Dollar. However, next week the new months brings with it the new cycle of economic data which is likely to increase the volatility which means while the exchange rates are so strong for Sterling it may be worth making the most of the current levels.
