  • Important week for Sterling exchange rates

    Following news that the EU repeal bill has been passed, the Pound has more to come this week, with a raft of UK economic data that has the potential to move Sterling exchange rates.

    With the Brexit withdrawal bill being debated today, inflation data and unemployment figures due over the next few days, and the Bank of England’s latest interest rate decision, this week could be busy for Sterling exchange rates.
