A Head to Head for the British Pound and the US Dollar

Posted by Allison on 16 July 2011, 15:25

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?

Posted by Allison on 14 June 2011, 14:02

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.

Did the Pound Do Well Against the Canadian Dollar in May?

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.

This is always a curious evaluation to make because you just don’t know whether the pound will be able to get the better of the Euro anytime soon. At the end of March the British pound had a rate of 1.1316 in place, so how would it fare during April?

It’s easy to look at the exchange rate between the British pound and the US dollar more often than not. After all the US has the biggest currency in the world, a reserve currency that is strong and usually quite robust.

When February came to an end this year, the British pound was bagging a nice rate of 1.1726 against the Euro. This was good news for anyone wanting to head over to some part of Europe for a weekend break in the near future.

The Pound Battles Against the US Dollar

If we wanted to see a good result here we would certainly have to work for it. By the time the markets closed on the 1st February the British pound was worth 1.6114 US dollars. So could we try and improve on that or would we see disappointing figures on the currency converter?

Is it Downhill for the Pound Against the Euro?

Posted by Allison on 18 March 2011, 10:37

On the 1st February the pound ended the day on 1.1715 against the Euro. The picture between these two has been nothing if not interesting over the last few weeks. You can never quite tell which way the seesaw will tip next.
