GBP/SEK - 1 Year Trend

Outlook and forecasts for GBP and SEK

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the GBP vs SEK, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both British Pound Sterling and Swedish Krona:


British Pound Sterling (GBP) outlook

Nine straight days of losses against the euro in May took the pound to a 3-month low of €1.143, and similar losses against the US dollar meant quotes in the low $1.28s — also a 3-month low.

Sterling weakness has returned following a breakdown in the UK of cross-party Brexit talks, which has brought “no deal” back to life.

It seems nothing much has changed: PM Theresa May has announced that she will ask the House of Commons to vote again on her withdrawal deal in early June (the deal has already been rejected three times).

A fourth defeat for May’s plan is widely expected and would make no-deal much realer, with little time to organize any alternative before the October-31 exit date (unlikely to be extended). It remains possible, however, that Brexit is cancelled entirely.

Swedish Krona (SEK) outlook

2019 has been something of a shocker for the Swedish krona. The currency is the worst performing major currency by some margin, confounding the forecasts of analysts which suggested it would be among the best now that Sweden’s central bank has commenced with a policy tightening cycle (in December it hiked interest rates for the first time in seven years).

Between January and March-8, the krona lost 7 percent of its value against the dollar and slipped to a record low of kr9.5; it also lost 5 percent against the euro, to kr10.65—a six-month low. The krona weakened along with expectations for future Riksbank hikes, which themselves were dented as evidence of a global economic slowdown piled up.

Fortunately for those holding krona, in the week leading up to this report (March-17), the krona was especially strong, making back roughly 40 percent of the aforementioned losses. The rally was driven by speculation that the Riksbank would intervene in the market to strengthen the currency.

“We reiterate our bearish view on the krona,” ING said in February, and “we don't rule out a [EUR/SEK] convergence towards 11.00”—that’s a rate not seen in a decade.

Why can't I just get the GBP/SEK market rate I see online or in the media?

The GBP/SEK mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the GBP / SEK was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.
