Gbp/eur Today

Recommended Posts

With all the goings on today I was expecting sterling to take a battering, yet it was hardly affected.

Anyone care to take a stab as to why?

Personally, I think that there must be some really bad news about to come out of the Eurowone!

The euro is a fake blown up bubble.

They know they need to cut rates more (eurozone) but they are trying to keep a strong currencie. FALSE ECONOMY/FALSE CURRENCY

I know it's easy to dismiss them, but Ireland are included. Its PIIGS. An acronym in use for nearly a year now and I must have seen 100 examples of it being quoted as something a bit more tasty, admittedly.

So now it's back to the end of march for parity, is it?

What happened to parity on January the 14th?

GBP dropped a bit against the CHF today but not much. I don't think the Swiss want the CHF to increase too much against the euro though - these 2 seem slightly linked together.

Spain's credit rating was downgraded. Isn't that bad enough?

GBP/USD has been testing 52 week lows for most of the day. If it breaches the support level at 1.444 or thereabouts, it could mark the start of a major move downwards for the sterling...

PS: Mods, could you possibly freeze my post count??

The euro has had a bad day, losing almost three whole cents against the dollar.

I think for the immediate future, sterling and the euro are going to be like two drunken old women pulling each other's hair in the gutter outside the gin-house, each one to weak to gain any visible advantage over the other clapped-out old hag. There might be a slight advantage for Madame Euro, because she is slightly bigger, though this could make it an even harder fall for her when she takes a head dive onto the concrete.

RB says he thinks that cable is going to be in the $1.45 to $1.55 range, but for the life of me right now I can only see it moving in one direction, slowly down towards the mid-30s.
