Comments:  Sterling made small gains as the market opened yesterday and rose against the euro and US$. The gains have been widely attributed to ‘profit taking’ by traders who have made so much money out of sterling’s fall, they want to bank some of the gains. Eurozone trade balance figures released yesterday were slightly down on expectations but with more grim news on the UK economy and the forecasts for how the fall-out of the financial crisis will effect employment over the next few years limited the upside for sterling.

Charles’s Thoughts:  Sterling is in the pits. The constant stream of increasingly negative data over the last year as well as the gloomy outlooks on the year ahead have left a sad picture of the UK economy. The recent flurry of well publicised job cuts and the ever growing sense of an impending recession (that may or may not have ‘technically’ started already) has new, unwanted benchmarks being set by sterling daily. The hope that monetary policy will be of any help against the current woes in the short term and this within a financial system already proven to be flawed is perhaps over optimistic. So don’t any upside for sterling in the short term. Further downside seems more likely.

The €’s price against sterling is flattered by the total decimation of the pound. Against the US$ however, the euro has itself lost an awful lot of ground in the past six months. The fact that earlier in the week Germany officially fell into recession was countered by news that the French economy has bucked the current trend and actually grown fractionally in the last quarter kept the single currency treading water. Interest rates in the eurozone may well be lowered over the coming months but the sharing of the burden amongst the Europeans has arguably helped some individual nations from the perils now affecting the UK economy.

The US$ and its movement against sterling over the past months has been relentless. The wave of optimism brought about from the promise of President Elect Obama leading the nation away from the current crisis and an end or at least a relenting of worldwide unpopularity has filtered quickly through to the markets. The continuation of risk averse investors returning to the US$ as a safe-haven asset and the notion that the US may be ‘over the worst’ of the credit crisis has certainly helped. How accurate this notion is however will be tested over the next few months.

The commodity backed and high yielding currencies continue to loss credibility as commodity prices fall and yields are cut but the problem is that sterling has lost even greater credibility.

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 transactions go so smoothly. As promised, our account was opened within hours. Your traders were pleasant and efficient, and each transaction was very much at the exchange rate I expected…ie 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

Comments:  Sterling fell for the third consecutive day to record-low prices against the euro. Losing ground to almost all major currencies sterling also hit its lowest price against the US$ for 6 years. The increasingly ‘dovish’ stance demonstrated by the Bank of England in their quarterly inflation report, out yesterday, solidified the belief that interest rates could come down by another whole percent by the end of the year. This news came only an hour or so after jobless figures in the UK were shown to be at their highest level of increase since 1992. However, German GDP data already released early this morning has shown contraction within the German economy meaning that the nation has officially entered recession. This and similar news over the coming year may well be sterling’s best hope for any significant improvement.

Comments:  In spite figures which showed the deficit in UK trade was not as bad as expected in the month of September sterling closed lower against the US$ and only fractionally higher against the euro. The recent trend against the US$ is raising speculation that prices could well move lower than the US$1.50/£1 by the end of the year which is almost 30% down from only one year ago. There will be significant releases regarding the health of the UK economy later today, most notably unemployment data as well as the Bank of England’s quarterly inflation report.

Comments:  Sterling fell marginally against the US$ and closed relatively unchanged against the euro having yesterday, and for the second week running, set itself a new record low price against the single currency. The release of poor UK retail sales figures and inflation reports did little to lift sterling away from what many may feel should be rock-bottom. However the possibility of prices falling below the 1.20euro/£1 is growing with the likelihood of further cuts to interest rates in the UK.

Charles’s Thoughts:  The Bank of England’s move to slash interest rates in the UK this week from 4.5% to 3% was surprisingly well received by the markets and it is hoped the decision will shock the flagging UK economy back into life. Despite rates being at their lowest for 53 years, there were suggestions following the announcement that further cuts may be on the cards in the early part of the new-year. Much of this speculation is owing to the fear of inflation coming in under the Bank of England’s targeted 2% in the coming months. However despite the news of the aggressive cut in rates being seen as a positive move for the UK economy, sterling fell to new record lows against the euro on Friday morning and closed the week marginally lower against the US$.

The economy was sited as the main factor behind how the US electorate voted this week, according to exit polls. So having made history by electing Barack Obama as the new ‘leader of the free world’ the pressure from the American public will undoubtedly mount for the new president elect for a clear plan of action for steering the US out of the financial crisis. A slight shift to the left politically in a time where de-regulation has been largely blamed for the global economic crisis should be something as a positive for Senator Obama. However, consistently grim US market data and low consumer confidence will test the performance of the US$ which has drawn so much strength from the investors seeking risk aversion and for having to return funds home.

The European Central Bank also cut their rates this week. A rather more conservative cut of half a percent to 3.25% that was largely expected did little in terms of market movement for the euro. Concerns parallel to those of the UK regarding the potential undershooting of inflation targets have left some to speculate that rates could well be reduced further in the next few months.

The Reserve Bank of Australia also made a larger than expected cut in interest rates this week. Cutting from 6% to 5.25% the markets’ reaction was positive enough to see the Australian dollar strengthen against most major currencies in the immediate aftermath. However, the commodity backed and/or high yield currencies in general have continued their trend to weaken along with the worldwide demand for commodities.

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.

Comments:  A shock cut of 1.5% in interest rates from the Bank of England yesterday saw sterling wobble briefly but then recover to just above its opening levels against the euro and the US$. The move to bring rates to their lowest levels in 53 years, with many expecting a cut of either half or three quarters of a percent, drew surprisingly little reaction from the markets. Since the general rule of thumb would be to see sterling weaken off the back of an aggressive cut in rates, the fact that the markets reaction was to the contrary and somewhat muted gave further testimony to the chaos and uncertainty of global markets. However, the pound is still in near-record low territory against the euro and losing ground against the US$. We await non-farm payroll figures to be released later today in America which will give guidance on how the US economy is doing and how difficult a job Barrack Obama has taken on.

Comments:  Following a day of mixed market data yesterday, sterling closed relatively unchanged against the euro and marginally up on the US$. The mixed UK data consisted of weak – but no weaker than expected, industrial production figures, disappointing manufacturing production figures but higher consumer confidence for the month of October than was previously expected. The rule book is out at the moment and standard market reaction to events such as an interest rate cut does not have the usually predictable outcome of weakening the respective currency. The market is perhaps more concerned with future growth rates and so as with the Australian dollar earlier in the week, a cut from the Bank of England today could well provide a much needed boost for the pound.

Comments:  The build up to the US election seems to have drawn attention from consistently weak US market data and although the US$ fell marginally against the pound and the euro, the US$ is still showing strength. Reactions to the results of the election and the direct implications on the US$ may not show on the markets instantly but the policies installed by the new ‘leader of the free world’ will be scrutinised over the first 100 days in office.

Against the euro Sterling fell further still yesterday and came close to hitting its all time low of earlier this year. There is a growing sense of anticipation towards the meeting of the members of the Bank of England on Thursday and anything less than a half percent cut in interest rates could well be seen as an under-reaction to the steep down-turn in UK productivity. The Reserve Bank of Australia made a larger than expected cut of three quarters of a percent in interest rates on Tuesday Morning which has lifted the Australian dollar against most currencies as the move was seen as a necessary action to limit the effects of a pending recession.
