EURO/GBP Rate & Comments for 19th June 2012

EURO/GBP – 1.2446

Sterling strengthened by 1 cent against the euro yesterday as the mild euphoria surrounding the Greek election results on Sunday quickly faded away. The main news on the UK’s economic calendar today is inflation data in the form of the Consumer Price Index (CPI). It is expected to be less than 3% as petrol prices have fallen. This level of inflation would make it easier for the Bank of England to increase the UK’s quantitative easing from its current level of €325bn. The G 20 meetings also continue today with investors hoping that some foundations are put in place before the summit in Brussels at the end of the month that will help the global economy and the Eurozone in particular.

Spanish benchmark 10 year bonds yields hit a euro era high of 7.285% stoking fears that a full Spanish government bailout may be required. German and Eurozone economic sentiment figures are released today; whilst Greece and Spain both have bond auctions which will give a clear indication of investors’ confidence in the two nations.
