Euro exchange rate

What are your predictions for the pound against the Euro will it rise or fall in 2021 my prediction is that it will rise and be at least at 1.25 by this time next year

Dream on...

Once any problems that might arise are apparent, perhaps a switch from U.K. to EU suppliers by EU based customers who are unwilling to pay any extra costs for bureaucracy the U.K. Economy may well reflect a loss of trade. If that is the case the £ will fall, perhaps to around 1.05€ or lower.....

I do hope that I am wrong and that there ARE sunny uplands....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I hope so, but I very much doubt it.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Unfortunately it won´t be what it was 15 years ago. We should have changed it all then, but who knew all the things in between were going to happen.

If you see what happens to it every time one of our politicians opens his gob, heaven help us.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Rather a long time ago we used to get 2.3 US Dollars to the pound...We also got 16.00D Marks to the pound.
Now 1.31 Dollars and prior to the Euro I think the D Mark was about 3.5 to the pound.
The downward trend has of course continued with the Euro.
After 60 years of the pound depreciating what magic formula will make it rise from the ashes?
Sad but true!
Perhaps I am a pessimist or is that a realist?

PS. Happy New Year

Yes the rate against the dollar is equally as important as the Euro rate as many things are priced in dollars and judging Sterling against the Euro is not the only yard stick as the Euro will also be effected by Brexit just not as much as the pound will be.

I don´t know how old you are Ted, but I remember when there were 3 US$ to a £

When we came here it was 1.49-1.50 € to the £

Jan that was my guess for about the end of 60s when I nearly purchased an American car. Obviously tax free in Germany!
