The British Pound (GBP) has experienced an uptrend over the past couple of months, with many analysts predicting further growth. The Pound has depreciated over the last few years due to political and economic uncertainty, but many analysts are predicting a reversal of fortunes as the current economic and political climate stabilises.
Latest: GBP/USD Stable Despite Trade Deal Concerns Many traders and investors are predicting that the British Pound will continue to rise against the Euro as more details of the forthcoming Trade Deal are announced. The pound may continue to rise against the Euro against the back of the current economic and political uncertainty.
Another factor which could contribute to the strengthening of the pound is the current economic outlook, which has seen the UK economy is performing better than most other European economies. This has meant that consumers are able to spend more money, which is not available to other European consumers due to the economic conditions in the UK.
In addition to this, the weak exchange rate of the Pound could also cause some currency investors to continue to increase their exposure to the British Pound, because the exchange rate is expected to remain relatively high, rather than dropping. If this trend continues, it could potentially lead to a rise in the value of the Pound, and a subsequent increase in the exchange rate.
However, the weakening Pound may be counteracted by the fact that many countries, particularly those which are already struggling to maintain their export levels, may be seeing an increase in the number of goods being imported into the United Kingdom. This may lead to an increase in the import bill, which will result in an increase in the exchange rate.
Many analysts expect that the Trade Deal will see the United Kingdom remains within the European Union and therefore remains in the European Economic Area, which has a major effect on the value of the pound. Other countries may see an opportunity to gain a foothold in the UK economy, which may reduce the role that the UK plays in the economy.
For this reason, many traders and investors have predicted that the Pound could continue to fall against the Euro. However, some analysts predict that a stronger economic outlook for the UK will keep the Pound stable against the Euro and may even increase its position against the dollar.
It is important to note that the strength of the Pound may be counteracted in the short term, by the potential impact of the Trade Deal on other countries. However, in the long term the pound may continue to strengthen against the Euro, and the UK’s economic position will continue to improve.
One of the factors that could determine the strength of the Pound against the Euro is the continued uncertainty surrounding the political situation in the United Kingdom. In this respect, the future role of the Prime Minister and his administration, and the overall government, may have an effect on the strength of the pound.
In summary, while a strengthening Pound against the Euro is expected, it is important to note that the trade deal may not have an impact on the value of the Pound. Some analysts predict that the pound will weaken against the Euro, and others predict that the UK will remain within the EU, but will remain in the single market.
