Sterling crashes as negative sentiment surrounds the Pound, will it’s value continue to decline? (Joseph Wright)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The 52 week lows for Sterling exchange rates have deepened further during today’s trading session, and in the early hours of today’s trading session the marketplace was unsure as to exactly why.

Most are pointing in the direction of trading algorithms, or automated trading to put it simply, after in the early hours of this morning the Pound was sold off extremely heavily before correcting somewhat, although not back to the levels we saw prior to this almost unprecedented move.

The drop against the dollar was the second largest in history after the drop in the immediate aftermath of the Brexit vote earlier this year back in June, so that’s 2 historic sell off’s in this year alone.

Many reading will be wondering whether the Pound will continue to fall from these levels, and it’s looking like there’s a good chance that it will because the fundamentals coming out of the UK suggest the economy is healthy, even improving economic output since the Brexit vote (which the weaker Pound has assisted in some cases). Despite the healthy economy, weak sentiment is driving the Pound down, and investors are quick to react negatively to bad news out of the UK.

The are a number of key financial institutions forecasting a weaker Pound in the upcoming months and years, with HSBC today adding to a number of major institutions with predictions of GBP/EUR parity at the end of 2017. There’s quite some distance to go yet some for those working to a budget or timescale, it may be an idea to remove the risk from the currency exchange.

If you want to be kept up to date on the markets and you would also like to ensure that you are getting the very top levels of exchange for an imminent currency transfer or even a longer term one then I can help you with this.

    This is really likely to continue since the pressure just tells and things are really not going to get any better at all, it’s very much obvious to all. I believe we should try to take advance and make sure to mostly have short trades. However, I don’t mind doing buying either due to been a scalper and it’s easier too due to OctaFX broker using their low spreads, high leverages and all such stuff, It’s really stunning conditions available to work with!
