Sideways trend set to continue for the Pound

Hi everyone,

It will be more of the same from the Pound this week/month, as we await to see who the UK's new Prime Minister will be. Only then will we see some real volatility, which more than likely will be negative if Boris Johnson wins the votes. 

June saw a brief high of £-€1.1280 and low of £-€1.1130, the expected ranges for the month at an average of 1.12. This month is looking similar, but at a trade range 1% lower overall. £-$ rates saw highs of 1.2780 and lows of 1.2520, but so far this month we are trading well below that and so expect this currency pair to perform under 1.25.

On Wednesday & Thursday there are a number of key figures being released, that will trigger some form of response on the market. Recent data from the UK has been poor and the US has been good, the same trend looks set to continue.
