What happened?

Well, after Brexit and now with Donald Trump as the future president of the US, it seems the currency market has been in turmoil. On the evening of the vote, sterling actually made gains against the dollar. However, as the first result rolled in, the pound immediately went down around 12%. The following morning, GMT time, that pain went even further with the a pound only buying $1.35. There was further turmoil, with some speculators saying it would drop further, and they were right (eventually). After a few comments from the new prime minister, the pound against dropped and right now, in November 2016, it's hovering around 0.80 against the dollar. Who knows what will happen in the future, but one date to watch out for is post-inauguration of President Trump and those first few days in the White House. Only time will tell!

UK Pound weakening?

We live in interesting times, those of you who follow the movement of the US Dollar to the UK pound will notice from the exchange rate graph, specifically the 3-month view, will see that the pound has been weakening against the dollar and also other major currencies. It recently crossed the 0.65 US dollars to the pound threshold for the first time since around January 2012, which is fairly significant. This could be as a result of the perception of the weak UK economy and the technical recession which the UK is currently experiencing. Time will tell how the pound fares.
