Euro rate falling as Bank hints at more QE

28 July, 2011


The Bank of England’s policy minutes, released this morning, show that the committee is discussing the possibility of further quantitative easing to stimulate the economy.

With the forthcoming economic cuts also looming, the Pound has started to fall significantly, losing 2.5c against the Euro already this week.

If further QE is implemented, we are likely to see further drops in the value of sterling, as was the case this time last year. Contact Currency Index if you are concerned about falling rates and would like to discuss the possibility of fixing a rate now for delivery later in the year.
