With the currency markets moving every two seconds, it can be vitally important to be aware of what is driving the currencies in or out of your favour. The below table shows the difference in Euros you would have achieved when buying £200,000.00 during the high and low points of the past 30 days.

With the latest EU summit set to take place tomorrow we could be in for a very volatile period ahead for the single currency, against both the Pound and the US Dollar.
Today we have the latest Industrial Production data for October, due to be published at 10:00am. The estimate is for 3.4% and we have seen a gradual rise during the last few months so any further rise could see some Euro strength vs the Pound later this morning. Also at 10:00am we have the latest Eurozone Employment Change data for the third quarter. Employment levels in the single economic area have been very strong recently and I think if we see further evidence of this I expect the Euro to strengthen against Sterling during today’s trading session.
Tomorrow afternoon brings with it the latest European Central Bank’s Interest Rate Decision at 12:45pm. Typically, this would result in a lot of movement for Euro exchange rates but owing to the EU summit taking place tomorrow I think that is likely to dominate the headlines.
A lot of focus has been placed on the UK recently and therefore the value of Sterling exchange rates but it is important to note that the talks are for the benefit of both parties. The discussions are being dubbed ‘phase two’ and hopefully trade discussions will go ahead with both sides looking to aim for a positive result.
Therefore, if the talks go well it is uncertain exactly which way GBPEUR exchange rates will go so expect the unexpected. However, what is for sure is that it will be the Brexit talks that are likely to dominate the rates to buy or sell Euros.
The likelihood however is that if the talks stall I think we could see problems ahead for Sterling so this may provide clients selling Euros with a good opportunity so make sure you’re prepared to move very quickly.
