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:
Another week and another change in fortune for the Pound. On Friday Boris Johnson’s brother Jo Johnson resigned, prompting fears that the whole “Brexit Deal” championed by Theresa May, was failing to find support and would be therefore impossible to push through Parliament.
Britain and the European Union have been edging toward an agreement after 16 months of talks, with the aim of getting a deal wrapped up at a summit in November. But as domestic opposition builds, momentum seems to be fading for getting a deal done quickly. The pound fell.
We are keeping our anticipated range up to GBP/EUR 1.1300-1.1500, even though Sterling is looking a bit weak.
Events for the coming week to watch out for:
Tuesday 13th November 10.30am UK Unemployment and earnings data.
Wednesday 14th November 10.30am IUK Inflation and PPI. 11.00am EU GDP and Industrial production. 14.30pm US Consumer Price Index.
Thursday 15th November 10.30am UK Retail Sales. 14.30pm US Jobless claims and Retail Sales.
Friday 16th November 11.00am EU Inflation. 15.15pm US Industrial output.
Suggested level to buy holiday Euros.
We are keeping our anticipated range at GBP/EUR 1.1300-1.1500. We think that buying holiday Euros above 1.1400 has been a good level all year.
