Brexit Talks, Inflation and European Union Summit – Impact on GBPEUR exchange rates (Tom Holian)

Pound vs Euro exchange rates have remained range bound during today’s trading session in anticipation of what could be a huge day on the currency markets tomorrow.

Both UK inflation and Eurozone inflation is due to be released tomorrow morning and this could cause big movements for GBPEUR exchange rates.

The reason for Sterling’s gains back in September was the rumours that the Bank of England may be considering hiking interest rates and so if inflation comes out high this could cause Sterling strength vs the Euro but if we see inflation falling I expect to see the Pound drop against the single currency as it means the BoE will be less likely to consider raising rates on November 2nd.

UK unemployment figures are due on Wednesday and like with the inflation data this could cause volatility on the markets.

To end the week the European Union will be holding a summit which will include the topic of Brexit and any trade deals that could be proposed between the continent and the UK so overall a busy end to the week for Sterling vs Euro exchange rates.

If you have a currency exchange to carry out in the coming days, weeks or months then you are more than welcome to speak with me directly as I will be more than happy to help you both with trying to time a transaction and getting you the top market rate when you do come to buy your currency.

A small improvement in a rate of exchange can make a huge difference so for the sake of taking two minutes to email me you may find you save yourself hundreds if not thousands of Pounds. You can email me (Tom Holian) on and I will endeavour to get back to you as I can.
