Currency Forecasts

British pound

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.
