Pound (GBP) Falls after Government Ramps Up ?No-Deal? Brexit Contingency Plans Published: 19 Dec at 4 PM 2018

Pound Sterling (GBP) After a lacklustre start, the Pound has picked up and risen against most of its currency peers today including the Euro and the US Dollar. This appreciation follows reports that the EU will offer the UK a nationwide customs union agreement; this supposed offering could lead to a long-awaited breakthrough in Brexit negotiations.

Euro Exchange Rates Fall after Italian Budget Warning Published: 20 Aug at 4 PM 2018
Pound Sterling (GBP) The Pound (GBP) has risen against the Euro and the US Dollar today, thanks to a lull in Brexit-related warnings. A report from the Institute of Directors (IoD) has shown that business leaders are concerned about post-Brexit trade, but this hasn’t damaged demand for the Pound to the extent of the past two weeks’ warnings. Sterling could fall against the Euro and US Dollar on Tuesday, in the event that a forecast-matching slowdown in industrial orders damages GBP demand. Euro (EUR) Greece has...
Pound Sterling Struggles as New BoE Official Reveals Dovish Rate Hike Outlook Published: 26 Jun at 5 PM 2018
Pound Sterling (GBP) The Pound has fallen by -0.3% against the US Dollar today, in addition to trading tightly against the Euro. This disappointing performance has been caused by remarks from Bank of England (BoE) policymaker Jonathan Haskel, who will be starting work in September this year. Mr Haskel will be replacing hawkish policymaker Ian McCafferty but has been more dovish in his outlook, meaning that there may be few interest rate hikes over the coming years. Despite Mr Haskel’s approach to interest rates, Pound...

While the BoE was expected to leave monetary policy frozen – and ultimately did – more members of the BoE Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) than expected voted to hike UK interest rates this month. Policymaker Andy Haldane turned hawkish and argued that UK growth was bouncing back from the slow pace seen over the winter. As a result of the vote...
British Pound Weakened by Brexit Jitters as Euro Surges on European Central Bank Speculation Published: 7 Jun at 4 PM 2018
Pound Sterling (GBP) This week has seen the Pound put in a mixed performance against major rivals. While it was supported against some other currencies due to solid UK services data, Brexit jitters have been enough to drag it lower against others. On Thursday, fresh Brexit uncertainties left the Pound unappealing, preventing it from gaining even against its weaker rivals. Investors became concerned that divisions over how to handle the issue of the Irish border had worsened UK government fissures between soft Brexit and hard Brexit...
Euro Exchange Rates Slide as Italy Faces Fresh General Election Published: 29 May at 5 PM 2018
Pound Sterling (GBP) Excluding an advance against the Euro, the Pound has otherwise fallen or traded tightly against its regular currency peers today.

The next UK data to watch out for will be a consumer confidence measure on Thursday, which is predicted to show a potentially Pound-boosting improvement. Euro (EUR) With a few exceptions, the Euro has...
