Derek Taylor targets the “Forward Order” this week at €1.1300 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 €1.1300 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:

Last week saw Sterling pressure on two fronts, both economic and political. A week ago, strong EU economic data boosted the Euro at the expense of Sterling, and then just as the Pound showed signs of recovery, reports of 40 Conservative MP’s signing a no-confidence vote have created political turmoil throwing the PM’s leadership into doubt. This led to a direct negative impact on the Pound.

Watch out this week for news around Theresa May’s premiership pressures!

Events for the coming week to watch out for.

Tuesday 14th November, 9.30am. UK inflation data, both CPI & RPI – indication of further crate hikes to come

Tuesday 14th November, 1.30pm US Producer Prices

Wednesday 15th November. 1.30pm, US Retail Sales

Thursday 16th November. 9.30am UK Unemployment data. 1.30pm US Jobless Claims.

Friday 17th November 1.30pm US Housing Starts.

Suggested level to buy holiday Euros.

Amazingly our previous suggested range holds intact at GBP/EUR 1.1100-1.1300, although expect currency volatility. Buying holiday Euro’s above 1.1300 still looks favourite.
