So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the DKK vs GBP, you should pay attention to both Danish krone and British pound sterling news and forecasts.
Danish krone (DKK) - Market news and forecasts
Being pegged to the euro, the Danish krone shares the same general trading patterns and outlook as does the single currency.
Like the euro, the krone had been one of the world's best performing currencies in 2017, rising to long-term highs, and it was broadly stable in early 2018.
In early 2018, USD/DKK was repeatedly pushed back from support at 5.93 as a result of EUR/USD simultaneously failing to rally through 1.25.
In February, Exante Data founder Jens Nordvig said that rallies in USD/DKK should be used as shorting opportunities (he expected further krone appreciation), although Nordvig declined from giving precise downside targets.
Against sterling, between October '17 and February '18, the krone did little. A GBP/DKK rate of 8.43 in late February was more or less identical to that in late September, five months earlier.
For 2018, based on forecasts for EUR/GBP, we can say that Danske Bank have predicted GBP/DKK at 8.65 at year-end, while UBS sees 7.83.
British pound sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts
Like most currencies, the pound was strong against the US dollar in early 2018. By late March, in line with the broader market for dollar pairs, GBP/USD had fallen back from January’s 19-month high of 1.434 to 1.4, but remained up 4% on the year and 17% higher than 2017’s low of 1.2.
Mirroring the standoff between UK and EU Brexit negotiators, the pound-euro exchange rate did little in the six-month period between October ’17 and March ’18. The pound continues to buy roughly 1.14 euros.
Like most other G10 currencies, the pound gained significantly in early 2018 against the Australian dollar and lost out against the yen.
According to a Reuters survey of FX analysts in March, the pound will end the year buying 1.41 US dollars (entering 2018, most analysts predicted rates between 1.3 and 1.35) and 1.12-1.14 euros.
