EURO/GBP Rate & Comments for 14th June 2012

EURO/GBP – 1.2314

Sterling had a poor day weakening off against the majority of currencies; but, remaining fairly flat against the US dollar. There is very little data released in the UK today; but, the Governor of the Bank of England who is speaking in the evening will provide some more insight as to the state of the UK economy. Call in now for the latest news and a live quote.

The euro was fairly stable yesterday and made gains against both sterling and the US dollar. The leader of the Greek Syriza party (the biggest ‘anti-bailout’ party) pledged to keep Greece in the euro yesterday; but, wants to renegotiate the bailout deal with the EU and the IMF. However, the bailout package is deemed to be non-negotiable; so, we will have to see what exactly this means going forward. Spanish bond yields remain high and an Italian 1 year bond auction saw its yields jump by 1.5% underlining investors’ concern in the region and for those counties in particular. Today we have an Italian bond auction of longer dated bonds and any significant increase in interest demanded by investors could be negative for sterling. Europe wide inflation data is the main release on the agenda today; but, the focus will remain on the run up to the Greek election on Sunday and any development that may occur in Spain and Italy.
