Euro Reaches Three Week High Against The Pound

The Pound lost some of its gains on Thursday against many of its peers with a lack of UK data leaving the currency exposed to losses.

However, further losses were limited as optimism continued to grow over the economic recovery in the UK and the lifting of some travel restrictions which saw a surge in holiday bookings. As the day closed, the currency finished at 1.1639 against the Euro and 1.3787 against the US Dollar according to the Foreign Exchange Market.

The Euro pushed higher yesterday, eventually reaching a new three-week high against the Pound. The European Central Bank announced a new strategy with a new inflation target replacing its previous target of less than 2%. This new strategy is designed to offer more flexibility, although a lack of data today could see the single currency influenced by coronavirus news and risk sentiment.

The US Dollar weakened yesterday as it lost ground against the Euro. With a drop in market sentiment, the US Dollar does get some support from investors although poor US Treasury yield and weak unemployment data placed pressure on the Greenback.
