A good week for GBPEUR exchange rates

This week the pound has gained momentum against all of the major currencies and in particular the euro. GBPEUR exchange rates have been trading close to a 6 month high and many of my clients have taken advantage.

Early in the week average earning numbers exceeded expectation which was a big surprise as the Bank of England have been predicting that average earnings would continue to fall in the months to come. The problem the Bank of England have been facing is that inflation numbers have been outpacing average earnings.

Earlier today UK GDP numbers have also impressed. The consensus for the quarterly figures were 0.4% and the numbers were released at 0.5%. Furthermore the yearly numbers were set to be released at 1.4% and the number was released at 1.5%.

Central levels of exchange have finished in the 1.14s and for any client buying euros this is a window of opportunity that you may want to take advantage of. In the last 3 weeks, exchange rates have improved by 3 cents and I cant see how we are going to see any further improvements short term.
