Exchange rate from pound to euro: the Brexit can: sharp appreciation & # 39; cause HIGH in GBP 6 months

The pound is supported by Brexit optimism, as the hope swells that a deal is coming.

Analysts believe that a Brexit deal would lead to a substantial rally in the pound.

James Athey, Money Manager at Aberdeen Standard Investments said: "A deal would mean that the next two years would be subject to EU-equivalent conditions, and it has the potential to generate the highest valuation in a long time."

Brexit news has helped to have the upper hand & # 39; on the dollar and the euro, said Laura Parsons, currency analyst at TorFX.

The pound is currently trading at € 1,148 against the euro, according to Bloomberg.

"The GBP / EUR exchange rate came up shortly above € 1,150 when the week came to an end despite some disappointing British housing data," said Parsons.

"If today's growth data makes an impression on the pound, the week may end at a high level, but an under-result may show Sterling the recent steps."

The appreciation against the euro came earlier this week when Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, 44, responded with a "thumbs up" when he was questioned about the outcome of a crucial Brexit Cabinet meeting in Downing Street.

Raab and other supporters of the Brexit Cabinet are expected to support the plan to leave every proposed Irish backstop with a notice period of several months.

The last trade balance of Germany was published yesterday by the German statistical office Destatis.

The data showed that German exports had a significant hit at the end of the third quarter, shrinking 0.8 percent and expectations were stagnating by 0.3 percent, as tensions in world trade seemed to be decreasing demand.

Carsten Brzeski, chief economist ING Germany explains: "The trade data end a disappointing week for the German industry, with available monthly data indicating that the economy has achieved its worst quarterly performance in 3Q since the start of 2015."

Looking ahead to today, GBP / EUR exchange rates can test the waters of € 1.15 after the publication of the UK's latest GDP figures.

According to economists, Friday's data will show a marked rise in British economic growth in the third quarter, with GDP expected to rise from 0.4 percent to 0.6 percent, as warmer weather during the summer encouraged consumers to spend more.

Meanwhile, a slowdown in eurozone data may make the euro vulnerable to further losses, especially if the markets remain bearish relative to the single currency.
