In recent days the Euro has strengthened across the board and especially against the US dollar as political uncertainty in Italy was removed when the EU commission reached a compromise in regard to the Italian budget.

The news came earlier in the month, but key to note shortly after French President Macron made concessions to the French people after the riots in Paris. Many analysts are suggesting that the EU commission gave Italy some slack as they would have to do the same to France in the upcoming months as France’s own budget deficit is set to exceed 3%, which would also be breaking the rules. However, for the time being the EU are set to live another day but this debt problem isn’t going away and I expect will be back in the spotlight towards the back end of 2019. However, for the time being, I expect a period of euro strength especially against sterling.
January is going to be a crucial month for the pound against the euro. With MPs set to debate Theresa May’s Brexit deal the first week back and a meaningful vote to follow a week after, If the Prime Minister does not have something up her sleeve, I expect she will lose and her time as PM to come to an end. My personal view is that a General Election could be on the horizon, however a no deal Brexit or another referendum are other potential outcomes.
They all bring further uncertainty and therefore that’s why I believe its going to be a tough start to the year for the pound against the euro.
From the moment I spoke with Dayle he was very friendly and explained how Foreign Currencies Direct operated. He also explained about the fluctuating Sterling/Euro market. Would definitely use the company again & recommend them to family & friends.
I’ve dealt with Dayle Littlejohn for over a year now and can honestly say I’m completely satisfied. He has always been totally efficient and has never failed to deliver consistently excellent service. I shall continue to use him and the company for currency conversion for this simple reason. Well done.
Brilliant company, well organised, helpful and Dayle who I deal with is extremely professional. I highly recommend this company who I have been dealing with for the past 2/3 years.
