Predicting currency exchange rates

Sterling continues to strengthen against the Euro and riskier currencies but declines against the safe havens like the USD & CHF
We have seen exchange rates

It has been a very mixed day for sterling exchange rates against a host of major currencies. While sterling has been strengthening to fresh highs against the riskier currencies (THREE AND A HALF YEAR HIGH AGAINST THE EURO, 2.0567 AGAINST THE KIWI DOLLAR, 1.6049 AGAINST THE AUSSIE DOLLAR, 12.9315 AGAINST THE RAND) it has weakened against some of the safer haven currencies(1.6066 AGAINST THE US DOLLAR, 1.4895 AGAINST THE SWISS FRANC)

Now for the pound, economic data seems to be making very little difference to how the exchange rate performs. Late last night retail sales data showed a decline over the course of the year. This had little effect on the excellent gains the pound has recently made. Most clients that have an imminent exchange are though capitalising on the improvement for sterling especially as we have another big announcement by the Bank of England tomorrow. We are not expecting much out of the interest rate decision but we must always be wary of the dreaded QE scenario. If more than 50% of the members do vote in favour of QE then sterling could weaken slightly. You may not want to take this risk with the excellent rates compared to a month ago and you are more than welcome to contact me at bma@currencies.co.uk before the decision so we can help you make a saving over your high street bank or any other broker that you may have used in the past. Just ask for Ben and I will make sure that I answer your enquiry as quickly as possible.

Aug. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Pacific Investment Management Co., which runs the world’s biggest bond fund, said the dollar will weaken as the swelling U.S. deficit erodes its status as a reserve currency.
The dollar will drop the most against emerging-market counterparts, Curtis A. Mewbourne, a Pimco portfolio manager, wrote in a report on the company’s Web site.
“Investors should consider whether it makes sense to take advantage of any periods of U.S. dollar strength to diversify their currency exposure,” Mewbourne wrote in his August Emerging Markets Watch report.
The Dollar Index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of currencies, has fallen 12 percent from this year’s high in March. China, the world’s largest holder of foreign- currency reserves, and Russia...
