The Icelandic currency isn’t one we typically look at very often. But the pattern during September was interesting enough to warrant a closer look on the currency converter to see how the exchange rate varied from the starting point of 185.060.

Unless you have been somewhere out of reach of the outside world in recent months, you cannot fail to have noticed that the Euro has never been in more trouble than it is at the moment. At the end of August the British pound was worth 1.1291 against the European single currency. But a lot happened during September.

The Swiss franc is often seen as quite a strong currency. It certainly has the air of standing its ground when the Euro seems to be approaching from all corners. But how did the British pound stand up to the Swiss franc on the currency converter last month?

We often take a look at how the pound performs against the US dollar. But what about the Canadian dollar – could it do well against this neighbouring currency?

Most people are aware that the British pound is lower in value than it has been against the Euro and the US dollar in recent times. This is to be expected since we have gone through a tough recession.

One of the biggest financial news stories to break in recent weeks has been the announcement of the US having its credit rating downgraded. You would expect the British pound to try and capitalise on this news by increasing its value against the US dollar.

At the beginning of June the pound was able to claim an exchange rate of 1.6495 against the US dollar. This seemed quite respectable and we were hopeful that we could at least keep up this kind of exchange rate on the currency converter for the remainder of June.

The Euro has been through many ups and downs of late, and arguably more downs than ups. So how would this affect the exchange rate with the British pound as the two went up against each other on the currency converter during June?

The picture between these two currencies was an interesting one – as ever – during May. The dollar was bagging 0.6729 against the Euro on day one, so the only question now was whether that would drop or increase as the month got underway.

When May got underway the British pound was holding a rate of 1.5814 against the Canadian dollar. It has been faring slightly better against the Canadian currency than it has against the US dollar, so it will be interesting to see whether the pattern of holding its own continued during May.
