Charles’s Thoughts: Sterling has had a good week. It started positively when the Chairman and CEO of Barclays Bank wrote an open letter to the market saying they were doing better than the market thought. This brought a bit of stability to the UK financial market which is a key part of the UK economy. Then the International Monetary Fund weighed in saying that of all industrialised nations the UK was likely to suffer the greatest recession due to this dependence on finance. The rest of the week showed sterling gain steadily against most currencies which seemed to stem from disquiet elsewhere rather than what was happening here. I think we are still in stormy waters for sterling, e.g. Honda start their 4 month shut down on Monday, so I would suggest people don’t get their hopes up for significant strengthening in the short term.

The US$ has lost a bit of ground against sterling. The new President has been working hard to get his stimulus programme accepted by the both Congress and the Senate. It is sorely needed as US economic output contracted 3.8% in the last quarter of 2008, the biggest contraction for 26 years. Still one significant benefit is that the US$ is viewed as a safe haven currency and as such I don’t see it losing significant ground against sterling in the short term.

Euro land suffered the most. Riots in the streets of Paris as the populous view the treatment of banks as unfair and preferential. Various countries increasing their rhetoric as to whether or not they should stick with the euro. When times are good one size can fit all. In times like these governments want/need more direct control over their monetary policy. However for euro land this is controlled centrally by the European Central Bank who have to look at the overall economy which means that Germany balances out, say Spain or Italy. So a week of weakness for the euro against sterling.

Are there any more high yielding currencies given the New Zealand’s governments cut in interest rates by 1.5% this week. If there are I suspect they are not worth holding. The New Zealand is going to be under pressure following this cut.

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

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

Comments: Sterling enjoyed a better day yesterday gaining ground against both the euro and the US$. Probably due more to disquiet elsewhere rather than any underlying strength for sterling. The number of countries saying they are thinking or would like to leave the euro is increasing. The problem lies in the fact that they cannot control their economies directly as all monetary policy is conducted centrally with one size fits all. Okay when times are good but when times are bad like now there are a huge number of diverse requirements that have to be dealt with and central control makes this very difficult if not impossible.

Comments: Sterling gained a bit of ground during the day against the euro and lost a bit of ground against the US$. This was on the back of mixed news. The International Monetary Fund has predicted that the UK will suffer the biggest recession of all industrialised nations. Not a real surprise given the dependence of our economy on the financial sector and the ever expanding public sector. The upside was a more positive view on the UK banking system by city analysts which brought a bit of confidence for sterling. We wait to hear feedback from the current meeting of the Fed in the US and what affect this will have on exchange rates.

Comments: Sterling held its own against the US$ and the euro. In fact it gained some ground during the day as there was some significant buying of sterling by investors who have decided to take advantage of its weakness. As the health of the global economy worsens it seems as if the euro is the currency that is losing credibility. Not quite sure why but it does seem that the level of bad news coming out of Euroland is showing a significant increase daily. This is probably as a result of their economy holding up best in the stages of the credit crisis but now with German exports falling off a cliff and industrial production contracting rapidly the full extent of the problems in Euroland are becoming apparent to the rest of the world. But don’t expect a sharp reversal in sterling’s fortunes. It could happen in this very volatile climate but I suspect there is more bad news here in the UK waiting to dampen our hopes.

Comments: A better day for sterling against the US$. Two reasons for this. The first is the Fed meeting later this week and the market beginning to speculate about what is likely to happen [ the US$ lost ground against most currencies including the € ] and the second is the open letter from Barclays Bank saying they are doing better than thought [ and especially after Gordon Brown's tirade at the start of last week about UK banks ]. It doesn’t surprise me the banks are doing better day to day as they have certainly increased their profit margins [ the difference between what they borrow at and what they lend at ] on my mortgage very significantly. It’s the past they have to sort out. The € was the main gainer yesterday.

Charles’s Thoughts: In another poor week for economic data sterling fell across the board as concerns for the health of the UK financial sector and the depth of the current down-turn persisted. On Monday the biggest names in British high-street banking all announced record losses. RBS share price fell approximately 60%. The newly proposed bail-out plan put forward by the UK government at the start of the week was intended to encourage the major banks to start lending again having seen little improvement in credit availability since interest rates had been slashed to historic lows. However, the initial reception of the package was clearly negative and confidence in UK business fell further. Remaining under pressure later in the week due to an increase in UK unemployment as well as evidence of the economy contracting 1.5% in the last quarter of 2008, sterling dropped to near record low levels against the euro and its lowest price against the US$ in almost 30 years. No respite for sterling.

There was very little in terms of significant US market data in what will be remembered as an historic week for the USA. The inauguration of Barak Obama as US President dominated headlines as a new wave of optimism swept through the blue half of the American populous. The monumental task facing the relatively inexperienced President of rescuing the US economy from the jaws of a massive recession will be, by popular opinion, the president’s toughest test as leader of the free world. We wish him well.

Marginally better-than-expected business confidence data was one of the only highlights in a quiet week for significant Eurozone economic data. Despite positive gains against sterling the euro fell approximately 4% against the US$ over the course of the week. Competing European exporters are concerned with the unfair advantage that UK exporters have thanks to sterling’s current weakness and this will apparently be a topic for debate in the next G7 meeting.

There was little to report regarding the high-yield and/or commodity backed currencies this week although interest rates in Canada were cut from 1.5% to 1% as its economy braces itself for a significant downturn over the coming year.

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: On a day with very little significant market data released sterling closed relatively unchanged against the euro and the US$. Mildly disappointing figures regarding US unemployment and US housing data did little to effect exchange rates as sterling kept to its lowest levels against the US$ since the Plaza Accord (1985) was introduced to help cap the US$’s strength on the markets. On the flip-side of this, the weakness of sterling has apparently drawn the attention of the G7 members. The ‘unfair advantage’ of UK exporters against their competitors will be a topic for discussion at their next meeting.

Comments: Concerns regarding the health of the financial sector as well as the ever-increasing government debt in the UK saw sterling continue its downward trend. Figures released showing a further increase in UK unemployment (now approaching 2 million) also helped bring sterling to its lowest levels in over 20 years against the US$ and close to record lows against the euro. The Bank of England (BoE) minutes from their meeting earlier in the month were released on Wednesday but gave little away regarding future policy on interest rates. The BoE reflected more on the reasons for their last decision, apparently opting for a cut of 0.5% rather than 1% so as not to “surprise the market or undermine confidence”, and so sterling continues to be under pressure.

Comments: Sterling continued to slide on Tuesday. As the markets opened the pound fell across the board but steadied through the afternoon. Sentiment towards the UK government’s new bail-out package as well as data showing the year-on-year increase in UK inflation weighed on sterling but by close the pound recovered some of its losses and closed roughly 1% down on the Euro and the US$. Attention tomorrow will turn to the Bank of England once more, as the minutes of this month’s meeting are released and any hints of future intentions with cuts to UK interest rates could be key to sterling’s value on the market over the next few weeks.

Comments: On the opening of the markets on Monday sterling lost immediate ground against most major currencies including the euro and the US$ as “quantitive easing” (or the printing of more money) was considered the general upshot of the newly delivered bail-out plan by the UK government. By lunch-time several high-street banks such as Barclays and Lloyds TSB had lost approximately 1/3 of their share value with the biggest losses posted by RBS whose share price fell by approximately 60%. There were disappointing figures regarding European production output released in the morning but, this had a negligible effect on the euro’s price against sterling. An ominous start to the week the pound closing about 1% down against the euro and 2.5% down against the US$.
