Market Report: March 2018

FX Monthly movement

  • US$/£ 1.39 from 1.38
  • US$/ € 1.23from 1.22
  • £/€ 1.13 unchanged

The weak US$ has impacted on most export prices in past weeks, but obviously the opposite impact is the more favorable rates for conversion into Euro’s and Sterling. Otherwise the markets are somewhat starved of news. Speculation around Brexit talks, and Trump administration auction of $ 250 billion of US government bonds and who has bought them. Of course, the endless chain of resignations, and speculation around the administration also adds gossip to market tendencies.
