Imminent Cabinet Reshuffle Mars Sterlings Recovery
10 October, 2017
The Recent ongoing speculation of Theresa May’s imminent cabinet reshuffle has given Sterling an early boost as the market re-opened after the weekend. With the Pound losing ground against the major’s last week after Theresa May’s eventful speech in which several Conservative party member where thought to have said that she is not fit to run the party. However, over the weekend the Tory mp’s have backed Theresa May to remain the leader and thus has seen the pound make a steady climb throughout yesterday Morning.
In the afternoon the tide had somewhat changed and Sterling fell back to the levels of which the market opened. With once again political uncertainty marring Sterling’s recent gains it may be worth considering purchasing the Currency you require if you are selling Pounds. Brexit negotiations are still ongoing and are seemingly like a slanging match as both parties are desperately trying to come to an agreement with no real results.
