Default Scare Story Headline Errors

The Mallorca Daily Bulletin yesterday reported, "Sterling hits 17 month low".

It didn't.

For a short time it went to just a fraction under 1.12; it was lower than that in September and August.

Its value is still within the range it has been since 2016 when Sterling was over-valued in the run up to the Referendum. For the record, it has NEVER been at parity although it got close ten years ago.

I saw that, just as I got an email from moneycorp saying the pound was on a high....

Just sitting high wondering whether to chuck a wedge over to last me a few years...

I suspect rates could go either way but a big and only temporary turn for the worse is possible. I shipped a load over at 1.15 a while ago and felt smug.

Friday's are always a tricky day on the currency markets but, if I needed to, I'd take a small to medium-sized amount today as a hedge and then wait until after the Commons vote.

Underlying, European economies are actually more of a worry to the dealers.

Then again, I've heard good things about the second favourite in the 3 o'clock at Sandown ...

Just for the record the money changing sharks at airports, especially Gatwick, have often paid, and still do, below parity at the desk. Get Revolut, Monzo or whatever but never change currency at UK airports

Surely the only people who use them are money launderers?

Yeah I managed to send over some when it was on the 1.15 mark recently, but only enough to pay a few bills unfortunately. Still, I think it will only go one way, once we get through all this brexit nonsense......whenever that will be!
