EURO/GBP Rate & Comments for 10th July 2012

EURO/GBP – 1.2606

Steady for sterling with no news either here or elsewhere to move sterling one direction or the other. Today we have a raft of UK data released covering retail sales, industrial production and trade balances. Expectations are not high as business confidence continues to fall across the world. It is probably a case of what happens elsewhere that will be key in determining sterling’s short term direction. Call in now to get a detailed update and the latest rates.

The key event in the Euro zone is the meeting of its finance ministers in Brussels who need to start implementing the decisions taken at the last EU summit. The implementation is not expected to be a quick process even though speedy action would be very helpful to economies throughout the world. With increased risk aversion we have seen the yields on Spanish and Italian debt continue to rise with the debt on the Spanish debt hitting 7% at one stage. The inverse happened to German government debt with yields becoming negative. I think this highlights clearly the contrasting fortunes within the Euro zone and the difficulties faced. Get the latest euro rate by calling in now.
