Weekly Currency Report

·Sterling lost ground last week amid mixed sentiment from the Bank of England, with the MPC Official Bank Rate Votes indicating that all nine members vetoed a rate rise, but Mark Carney eluding to an imminent shift towards a more hawkish response.

·GBP/EUR looks set to drop back below 1.40 Interbank if data continues to disappoint this week.

·Greek banks reopen as the country made payments of €2.05Bn to the International Monetary Fund and €4.2Bn to European Central Bank, effectively clearing their debt repayments for now.

·The Greek Parliament passed the vote on the second package of prerequisites for further financial assistance, which lead to sustained Euro strength filtering through to the market

GBP/EUR exchange rates have dipped by 3% since last week falling from 1.4410 to 1.3989. Although lower than where they have been recently, this level still represent excellent value, so we are still finding our Euro buyers are wanting to lock in rates sooner rather than later.
