Sterling sell off pauses this afternoon, but for how long and how far will the GBP/EUR rate decline? (Joseph Wright)

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

Sterling’s sell off has paused this afternoon as the GBP/EUR pair have found strength at the 1.1300 mark.

The sell off was initiated by comments from Theresa May over the weekend at the conservative conference, as she stated that the invocation of Article 50 will occur in March of next year and this has dampened investors spirits as I covered on Monday.

Despite some positive figures from the UK construction and manufacturing sectors we’ve seen little of a fightback, and i’m putting today’s pause of the sell off down to bargain hunting day traders buying the Pound on the cheap.

Moving forward I think that we could see the sell off recommence, and i’m not alone as number of major financial institutions have outlined weaker sterling forecasts in the upcoming months.

Probably the most prominent is that of UBS, who have a outlined an end of 2017 forecast at 1.00 for GBP/EUR and 1.20 on GBP/USD.

With such weak predictions for the Pound in future it may be an idea for those working to a time limit, or a budget to consider making their conversions sooner as opposed to later as many are predicting further falls.

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.

Not only do we give clients up to date market information but we all work for one of the largest and longest serving currency brokerages in the U.K, so even if you have dealt with your current broker or bank for a long time I would be surprised if I could not show you a saving over what they are offering you – You can email me (Joseph Wright) directly on and I will be more than happy to contact you personally to discuss the various options we have available to you
