Derek Taylor targets the “Forward Order” this week at €1.1400 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 €1.1400 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:

There is an interesting situation developing in the Courts. The High Court will make a ruling before Christmas as to whether Brexit should be declared legally “void”. The National Crime Agency (NCA) has been conducting a probe into suspicions of multiple criminal offences committed by Aaron Banks and the Leave EU campaign. The case looks to be heading to a full hearing in the High Courts in December. Ewan McGaughey, a senior law lecturer at Kings College London has written that “The order by the Prime Minister to trigger article 50 and negotiate to leave the EU could be declared void”.

The EU have given the go-ahead for Theresa May’s Brexit Bill, but the real test will be when she tries to get it through Parliament on December 12th. Some people say “no chance”.

The Italians appear to be reaching some compromise over the budget situation that has been causing concern around Europe- good for the Euro. But the Russians have snatched three Ukrainian warships near the annexed Crimea and the Ukrainians are threatening to introduce martial law. – bad for the Euro. So the net position is offsetting.

We are raising our anticipated range slightly to GBP/EUR 1.1200-1.1400. But watch out for the political manoeuvrings’ leading up to the parliamentary vote.

Events for the coming week to watch out for:

Monday 26th November 1.30pm US National Activity Index.

Tuesday 27th November 3.00pm US Consumer Confidence.

Wednesday 28th  November 3.00pm US New home sales.

Thursday 29th November 10.00am EU Business confidence. 1.30pm US Jobless claims.

Friday 30th November 10.00am UK Nationwide house prices. 10.00am EU Inflation.

Suggested level to buy holiday Euros.

We are raising our anticipated range to GBP/EUR 1.1200-1.1400. We think that buying holiday Euros above 1.1300 looks good.
