Yesterday sterling dropped half a cent against both the Euro and USD during the day’s trading, in part due to a complete lack of any positive domestic data releases but it was largely down to a mixture of continued ill-sentiment and continued sell-off of the Pound, off the back of the Tory party’s “dementia tax”, with polls suggesting the Conservative lead has been cut significantly and Mario Draghi’s speech, which he gave early yesterday afternoon.

On Friday we saw GBP-EUR rates continue to coast along in a downward movement as the trading day progressed. The currency pair has been trading in a tight range these last few weeks and currently experiencing the lower end of the spectrum. This is likely down to the comments made by the Bank of England following the vote by the MPC members which came in as expected to keep interest rates unchanged during this month’s monetary policy meeting.

Yesterday the focus was very much on the Bank of England and the decision of whether or not the interest rates will rise at all. With the result – a unanimous vote to keep interest rates as they are and avoid a rate hike as widely expected.
