If you’d like to know when to buy Euros, it may interest you to know that, yesterday afternoon, the Pound to Euro rate hit day highs of around 1.1580, after seeing a slight upturn as the day progressed.
The reason behind the climb in the Pound’s value against the Euro, as well as against many other major currency pairs, can be put down to Prime Minister Theresa May’s position remaining safe, at least for now.
Recently, there have been calls from a grassroots level to amend a longstanding Tory Party rule, allowing for another vote of no-confidence regarding Mrs. May’s position. Yesterday, the 1922 Executive Committee of backbench Conservative MPs voted against amending the rule, so May will remain safe for now.
However, they have asked the Prime Minister to outline a timeline for her departure, after she previously mentioned that she doesn’t intend to stay on, once a Brexit deal has been arranged.
Pound Euro exchange forecast
Economic data is light for the remainder of the week so, like yesterday, politics will likely remain the key driver of currency fluctuations involving the Pound for the remainder of the week.
Next week on Thursday could be when economic data releases impact GBP exchange rates. This is when the Bank of England’s interest rate decision will be announced, along with a raft of other data releases and speeches regarding the economy.
