Friday 14th November
The sterling sell off continues this week, as expectations of an interest rate hike in the UK are pushed back. The chart below shows how the rate has moved over the last few days:
There hasn’t been any further data to cause the drop, and the fall is purely investors continuing to dump the Pound due to the fact interest rates are not going up any time soon, as I outlined in my last post on Wednesday.
The drop has been quite significant. Purchasing €250,000.00 today compared to Friday morning would cost you £4,400.00 more, purely due to exchange rate movements over 2 days. This demonstrates how quickly things can change, and how important it is to get your timing right with regards to when to fix your exchange rate.
