• US Dollar and Euro look to normality, for Sterling it is anything but

    Following Sterling’s boost late last week it’s a busy time for the Pound, the Euro and the US Dollar with some key events coming up, including the US interest rate decision, an important speech by Theresa May and the German election.

  • GBP/EUR, ECB Taper and Mario Draghi at Jackson Hole Symposium

    The biggest event this week looks likely to be the Jackson Hole Symposium which starts on Thursday and concludes on Saturday in Wyoming, USA. Does news from this meeting of central bankers have the potential to impact exchange rates?

  • Post-election exchange rates and Brexit talks

    With Brexit negotiations now underway and political uncertainty rife in the UK, the Pound has been struggling against many of the major currencies, especially the Euro and US Dollar. Expect significant exchange rate volatility around any Brexit announcements.

  • How will the French elections affect Euro exchange rates?

    The French elections are fast approaching and markets remain on edge to the potential victory for Marine Le Pen. How could this affect Euro exchange rates?

  • Best time to buy Euros in 2017

    The Pound reached its highest level against the Euro this year, as markets prepare themselves for a potential Marine Le Pen victory. These levels may not present themselves for long with the UK expected to begin its withdrawal from the EU in the coming weeks.

  • When is the best time to buy foreign currency in 2017?

    The potential for more US interest rate hikes next year has strengthened the position of the US Dollar, but with Brexit and the European elections still at play, exchange rates could remain volatile in 2017.

  • Is now the best time to sell Euros?

    Pressure is mounting on the Eurozone ahead of the European elections next year, could now be the best time to sell Euros?

  • Pound to Euro rates remain volatile on political uncertainty

    Pound to Euro exchange rates have been under mounting pressure following the EU Referendum in June, but with a series of European elections next year, the Euro could face further weakness.

  • President Trump & Brexit: breathing life back into the Pound

    With Donald Trump’s win in the US Presidential election and the High Court’s ruling on Brexit resulting in Pound strength, and the markets seemingly governed by politics rather than economic trends, further surprises are certainly not out of the question.

  • Brexit fears continue to weigh in on Sterling’s value

    Brexit uncertainty continues to weaken the Pound and with little plans from Government, further losses could be on the horizon. Whilst this could continue for some time, political events in Europe and the US could present opportunities for those selling Sterling.
