Will the Pound get Stronger against the Euro ?

Pound-to-euro forecast

Back on Nov 19th ,the Pound to Euro exchange rate rose to its highest level in 2021 at €1.1910 – this came after UK inflation beat expectations.

Since then – the Pound has weakened again and risks slipping back toward early November’s lows in the €1.1630 range.
There could be some response to October’s UK GDP data due out on Friday morning, which will provide insight into the status of the UK’s economic recovery early in the final quarter.
The new Omicron Covid variant has caused stock markets and Sterling to weaken in December – but it looks like the newest strain of Covid might not be as severe as first suspected.
However – Markets now anticipate a Uk interest rate hike in February, but the risk posed to the economy by the UK government’s response to Omicron might soon see investors lower the odds – or expected scale – of a February rate hike. This would add further pressure to Sterling.

In October ABN AMRO forecast a Euro to Pound exchange rate of £0.85 for year-end, £0.84 for the end of quarter 1 2022,£ 0.83 for the end of the second quarter, £0.81 for the end of the third quarter and £0.80 for the end of 2022. (So a gradual fall in the Euro Vs GBP). This was based on the expectation of a November UK interest rate rise.

The above figures translate into Pound to Euro forecasts of €1.1764 for year-end, €1.19 by the end of the first quarter of 2022, €1.2050 by the end of the second quarter, €1.2324 by the end of the third quarter and €1.25 by end of 2022.

Fluctuations in Exchange Rates can make it a nerve-wracking time if you are planning to change large amounts of Sterling or Euro in the near future.

Using a Currency Exchange company can remove some of the uncertainty if you are wondering “is now a good time to change euros to pounds or “when is the best time to buy euros”. Crucially, a currency transfer specialist can enable you to fix an exchange rate as much as 12 months in advance of a transfer.
For example- if the current exchange rate suits your future house purchase budget it would make sense to fix the rate now.
You can also place automatic orders – so that when a rate hits your target rate – the exchange is automatically carried out for you.
