Ashley Finill

As September comes to a close and we enter the month of October which brings us closer to the Brexit deadline at the end of the month on the 31st. Boris Johnson has been very adamant that the UK will be leaving the European Union with or without a deal. With the new law put […]

27 September, 2019

Grace Rae

This week markets have continued to provide some good buying opportunities for those with sterling in hand looking to buy foreign currency. On Tuesday morning courts ruled and the Prime minister had been unanimously agreed that his suspension of Parliament was unlawful, which gave Sterling a little leverage although only short-lived. With the Brexit countdown […]

Bradley Ronan

This week we finally have the result that the Prorogue of Parliament was unlawful. This was heard earlier yesterday from the Scottish Supreme Court.

23 September, 2019

Rob Bastin

Last week’s trading was another positive one for the pound, with its 6th consecutive week of gains against the Euro after hitting a 2 year low in August. Market sentiment has fast shifted away from no-deal fears ever since the legal bill to block this outcome was proposed and passed through the house of commons. […]

Base Rate Instinct

20 September, 2019

Sam Roberts

What a bumper week it has been in the Soap Opera that has become Brexit. We had Boris Johnson meeting with Xavier Bettell to discuss a way forward, only for Boris to suddenly ‘worry about his safety’ because of very loud ‘shouty’ protesters. So instead of an open-air press conference where the two gentlemen could […]

Yesterday saw sterling edge up against most major pairings in the afternoon as the recent negative sentiment towards UK financials appeared to ease.

Looking back over the last week we have seen some consistent gains for sterling with a 14 week high for GBP/EUR and an 8 week high for GBP/USD.

Parliament Suspended

11 September, 2019

Ashley Finill

This week Sterling has enjoyed a rally on the Euro gaining over a cent on the Euro since Monday opened for trading. As we have seen previously with any gains for the Pound these gains can be short lived. Members of parliament have now managed to legislate against a no-deal Brexit whilst also denying the […]

Sterling strength as No Deal Brexit fears diminish

9 September, 2019

Grace Rae

Safe to say this past week has been a bit of a mess for UK Parliament. Multiple Tory sackings, opposition parties not backing the Prime Minister’s attempts to bring forward a general election ahead of the EU October summit, rumours of an election pact, and the House of Lords passed a bill to prevent a […]

Uncertainty is the name of the game

6 September, 2019

Tom Arnold

What a week it has been on the markets… The tumultuous goings-on in Westminster have completely dominated the markets this week, and have for the most part been kind to the Pound. Having reached near multi-year lows against both the Euro and the US Dollar in the last couple of weeks, this week has seen […]
