Foreign Exchange Daily Market Update 07/02/2018

Wed, February 07, 2018

Pound falls to its lowest level in more than 2 weeks.

Sterling fell for the third straight day against the dollar to the lowest level in more than two weeks as a deep slump in stock markets had a knock-on effect on the currency markets.

Sterling weakened, after it had rallied 5% in January, its best start to a year on record, amid expectations of a smoother Brexit and a hawkish message from the BOE on Thursday.


Sterling fell by as much as 0.9% to $1.3836, the weakest level since Jan. 18, before bouncing back to $1.3873 against the dollar yesterday afternoon. The pound weakened 0.3% to 1.122 against the Euro.
