Grace Rae

Much like the looming rainy weather we are set to receive over the coming days, the markets could similarly be set for further doom and gloom in the coming weeks. Yesterday, rates traded fairly flat with GBP-EUR remaining within a half a cent range, providing no real swings or cause for excitement while the afternoons […]

Paul Newfield

After somehow angering many in the EU Brexit negotiating collective about breaking for Easter holidays, immediately after reaching an agreement over an extension, British MPs return to work after a short period away from the commons. There was nothing of note data-wise on Good Friday or yesterday on Easter Monday and this trend continues with […]

All Quiet On The Western Front

18 April, 2019

Samuel Roberts

Over the last few days, the market has slowed right down in its’ volatile nature. Partly because both houses (Commons and Lords) are on their respective Easter Break’s and Brexit has been pushed back until the end of October. Another reason is that the markets are relying more on economic data, something that they understand […]

Simon Eastman

Even with the Easter break in Parliament, the pound still can’t shake the doldrums it finds itself in, despite some fairly good jobs data. UK unemployment held at 3.9 percent, some of the lowest levels seen in years, as the rate of people within the UK without jobs continues to decrease. Average earnings also came […]

This said there is a good chance that in this Brexit lull markets refocus on some […]

Focus on Data as Brexit noise fades to background

15 April, 2019

Rob Bastin

Yesterday’s trading was relatively muted as markets await the outcome of last night’s emergency EU summit, to see if the EU would approve a requested extension, and if so to what end and what timeframe. Financial market’s have become understandably nervous as this approval goes down to the wire with just 24hrs left before the […]

Will the UK be leaving the European Union by default on Friday?

9 April, 2019

Grace Rae

Over the past few months rates have been sitting within a 2 cent range as the will we/won’t we exit the EU saga endures. However, rates against the Euro began to dwindle throughout the day yesterday, pushing towards the lower end of rate range as anticipation over the looming default Brexit day draws closer. With […]

8 April, 2019

Tom Arnold

As we have seen for the past few months, Sterling’s fortunes are almost entirely dependant on the ups and downs of the ongoing Brexit situation. This was no different last week, with the Pound enduring something of a rollercoaster as we saw a series of critical votes in the House of Commons give us the […]
