Comments:  Poor retail figures and further falls in house prices have knocked sterling and it has lost ground against most currencies. Not quite sure why the market should expect anything else given current economic conditions here in the UK.

Comments:  Sterling has enjoyed a good few days. The main reason seems to be worries about the Euro land economy not least in Germany where business confidence is beginning to suffer. The market is beginning to wonder when rather than if € interest rates will be reduced. A bit of stability for sterling over the last few weeks. Hopefully a base from which to build.

Note:  All rates are mid market inter bank and indicative at the point of publication.

Charles’s Thoughts:  A bit like last week sterling had a good end to the week. The major factor at the end of this week was weakness in German business confidence. Also the minutes of the last Bank of England meeting were released and they showed that two members of the committee voted against reducing UK interest rates which was a surprise. So relative to the last few months the last two weeks have seen a bit of stability for sterling. How long this will last or if this is the base for sterling from which to regain lost ground is too soon to say.

The US$ is getting support from the growing conviction that the Fed will stop reducing US interest rates after the end of this month. This is in contrast to the UK and Euro land where the expectation is for interest rate reductions whether in the short or long term respectively. Also there was an unexpectedly large fall in US jobless claims which has also supported the US$. The US is far from being out of the woods but the feeling in the market is that there is upside given the rapid action of the Fed in cutting rates earlier this year.

The € lost ground at the end of the week as a survey showed that German business confidence had deteriorated more than expected in April. Given that the German economy is the mainstay of Euro land this is a worrying sign for Euro land. The market has started talking about € interest rate cuts. This may be premature but when they do start the € will suffer.

Sterling had a steady week against most of the high yielding and commodity back currencies. New Zealand kept their interest rates unchanged although the expectation is to the downside. Canada has cut their interest rates given their reliance on the US.

Why is Currency Management So Important? Using a bank could cost you £3-4,000 per £100,000 transferred. Buying at the “wrong” time could cost you many £’000′s more as rates can move as much as 3% in a very short period of time. Then add in transfer costs that the banks charge for sending and receiving funds and you could be looking at additional costs of £10,000 per £100,000 transferred. By developing a currency strategy and by working with a specialist currency broker these losses could be minimised if not eliminated.

Smart Client Testimonial: “Thank you for making our currency transactions go so smoothly. As promised, our account was opened within hours. Your trading team were pleasant and efficient, and each transaction was very much at the exchange rate I expected…ie much better than the tourist rate, not a million miles away from the inter-bank rates and certainly much better than my high street bank could quote. All in all, an easy experience and we will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services to any of our friends buying property abroad.” Ian Pritchard

How much will a Property Cost? To estimate the cost of a property simply DIVIDE the price of the property by the appropriate currency rate noted above. But note this is based on the inter bank rate so the actual cost will be slightly more.

Comments:  Some interesting economic data out of Euro land which shows that businesses that export are beginning to suffer due to the strong € and weak economies elsewhere. So Euro land is not immune to the woes of the rest of the world. Also the minutes of the last Bank of England meeting showed that not all members voted for a cut in UK interest rates which means that further cuts are not a foregone conclusion.

Comments:  The fillip that sterling enjoyed at the end of last week was short lived. It seems to have been a case of buy on rumour and sell on the facts. On Friday it was rumoured that the Royal Bank of Scotland would raise £12bn through a rights issue and that the Bank of England would aid liquidity through the “buying” of £50bn in mortgage loans from the banks. These are now facts and sterling has lost ground. It is thought that the BOE will continue to cut UK interest rates and as such sterling is seeing one of its main supports slowly eroded.

Charles’s Thoughts:  Sterling had a good end to the week. A couple of factors seemed to benefit sterling. Firstly the Royal Bank of Scotland has announced a rights issue which indicates that UK banks have started to restore their balance sheets. Also it is thought that the Government is set to announce next week plans to ease tight conditions in the mortgage market which will help markets. Hopefully these positive factors will allow sterling to regain some equilibrium short term.

The US is enjoying the papal visit. However there has been no divine intervention as regards to the US economy and the expectation is for further interest rate cuts. Still significant economic problems which are weighing on the US$ as it closes in on US$1.6/€1. No relief short term.

The € had an interesting week. Euro land inflation is still at the top end of expectations which means that the European Central Bank will not cut the € interest rates in the short to medium term. However, there are ever rising concerns about the Euro land economy and the strength of the €. The € maintains its “safe haven” status which it has held for a while but pressure is continuing to rise in Euro land.

Sterling had a good end to the week against most of the high yielding and commodity back currencies. Concerns in New Zealand about a possible recession are rising and as such we could start to see weakness for the New Zealand $.

Why is Currency Management So Important? Using a bank could cost you £3-4,000 per £100,000 transferred. Buying at the “wrong” time could cost you many £’000′s more as rates can move as much as 3% in a very short period of time. Then add in transfer costs that the banks charge for sending and receiving funds and you could be looking at additional costs of £10,000 per £100,000 transferred. By developing a currency strategy and by working with a specialist currency broker these losses could be minimised if not eliminated.

Comments:  Sterling continues to slip away against the €. Trouble is the market thinks that sterling is still overvalued. The European Central Bank is unlikely to reduce interest rates any time soon as inflation is still their main concern and the Euro land economy, as a whole, is doing okay. This is in complete contrast to the UK where the expectation is that interest rates will be cut so as to help a faltering UK economy. So €1.20/£1 is a very real possibility.
