Derek Taylor, our very own foreign exchange expert, is recommending that Travel Money Club members buying Euros this week should target their “Forward Orders” at €1.1300 for a great deal.
The “Forward Order” feature is exclusive to Travel Money Club and allows members to automatically buy currency when their target exchange rate is reached. They simply tell the us what currency to buy, what exchange rate to buy at, and the payment card to use. Then if and when the target exchange rate is reached, we automatically execute the order and deliver next business day* (for orders completed by 1pm). As it all happens in the blink of an eye, even if your target rate is only achieved for a couple of minutes, we will still execute your order!
Derek told us:
The UK premiership race, drags on, while UK economic data out this week is expected to show our economy slowing down. The Pound eased off in anticipation.
But we are holding our range at GBP/EUR 1.1100 1.1300.
Events for the remainder of the week to watch out for:
Tuesday 16th July – 9.30am UK Unemployment data. 1.30pm US Retail Sales.
Wednesday 17th July – 9.30am UK Inflation CPI, RPI and PPI, 10am EU inflation, 1.30pm US Housing starts.
Thursday 18th July 9.30am UK Retail Sales. 1.30pm US Jobless claims.
Friday 19th July 9.30am UK Public Sector Borrowing.
Suggested level to buy holiday Euros.
Our anticipated range for GBP/EUR is now 1.1100- 1.1300. A good target to lock in your holiday Euros would be anywhere near GBP/EUR 1.1200. Personally, I am advising friends to buy half their Euro’s now and the other half closer to their travel date.
