Derek Taylor targets the “Forward Order” this week at €1.1350 on the Euro

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 €1.1350 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:

A top EU legal advisor has stated that Britain has the right to withdraw from Brexit. The General Advocate for the European Court of Justice published an opinion in which he said that the UK could unilaterally revoke Article 50.

The Pound roared up but then Mark Carney at the Bank of England said in a speech that:

  1. He hinted at his approval of the present EU/UK Brexit plan. The Bank sees the Pound rising in event of a smooth Brexit transition being secured.
  2. But, Bank of England policy makers have stood by analysis suggesting the British Pound is at risk of losing substantial ground in the event of a disruptive ‘no deal’ Brexit taking place in 2019.
  3. There would be more Sterling volatility.

EU producer prices came in better than expected this morning giving a small boost to the Euro.

We are easing our anticipated range slightly to GBP/EUR 1.1150-1.1350. But watch out for the political manoeuvrings’ leading up to the parliamentary vote.

Events for the coming week to watch out for:

Please note. As well as the G20 in Argentina, there is a lot of scheduled rhetoric coming from the US this week.

Tuesday 4th December 10.00 am EU Producer prices (came in better than expected).

Wednesday 5th December 10.00am EU Retail Sales. 1.15pm US Employment report.

Thursday 6th December 12.45pm ECB rate announcement, 1.30pm US Jobless claims and factory orders.

Friday 7th December 8.30am UK Halifax house prices. 10.00am EU employment and GDP. 1.30pm US Non=farm Payrolls.

Suggested level to buy holiday Euros.

We are easing our anticipated range to GBP/EUR 1.1150-1.1350. We think that buying holiday Euros above 1.1250 looks good.
