Euro falls, Dollar rises

28 July, 2011


The Euro has weakened significantly today, as the political problems in Ireland continue.

The main move has been between the Euro and US Dollar, which has been back in demand as a “safe haven” currency.

The result is something of a see-saw with the Pound stuck in the middle. We have improved rates for sending money in Euros, but worse rates for buying US Dollars.

Tomorrow’s UK GDP figures are likely to turn focus back to sterling, so if you need to secure Euros in particular you might like to contact Currency Index for a quote before the data release at 9.30 am.
