Pound Sterling - US Dollar Forecasting

The Great British pound sell-off continues as mounting Brexit fears weigh on the embattled currency. Trade negotiations have stalled heightening fears a “no deal” divorce will eventuate. With risk sentiment faltering and Brexit concerns escalating we expect the pound will remain under pressure as we move toward the self imposed October trade deal deadline.

Market analysts are predicting a possible drop to US$1.25 in the event of a ‘No-deal Brexit’.

How to get Best USD to GBP Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

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.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
