The last time we saw how the UK pound was doing against the US dollar, it finished the week on 1.5820. It started to perk up a tiny bit as the new week got underway, ending Monday evening on 1.5832. It reached a week long high of 1.5972 on Thursday evening but unfortunately it dipped back down on Friday to close out the week on 1.5854. It was still a small improvement however.

The pound did well against the US dollar last time, finishing on 1.5715 as we went into the weekend. There was good news as the week kicked off, as we improved our standing to 1.5847. It would be an up and down week but thankfully we ended on a good note, finishing on 1.5820 as the week went into the weekend.

The last exchange rate we had for the pound versus the US dollar was 1.5626. As soon as the new week got underway the rate immediately went down to 1.5595. This dipped further to 1.5518 on Tuesday evening but luckily that was as low as it went.

There was certainly an increase on Wednesday evening as the pound reached the heights of 1.5546. It improved yet again the following day and claimed a rate of 1.5621. The rate of improvement slowed down for the end of the week but the pound still closed on 1.5626 on Friday evening. Would this be a good result that was emulated elsewhere?

Let’s begin by taking a look at the British pound against the US dollar. The opening rate for the week was 1.5454, but by the time Monday’s trading had ended and everyone headed home, the figure had gone down to 1.5400. This meant just over half a cent’s loss in a single day, so what would happen on Tuesday?

Could we do the same against the Euro though? Our opening rate here was 1.2025 and by Wednesday evening this had changed to 1.2164, so it was good news to start with at least. But we followed the same pattern we had seen against the US dollar when we fell to 1.2109 the following day and then finished in a better state on 1.2144 on Friday night.

Our opening figure against the US dollar this week was 1.5403, after a slight increase over those last three days of that week. However by the time Monday was out of the way we were staring at a figure of 1.5358 instead. It wasn’t the best start and unfortunately for us it got worse too.

The first sign was encouraging as we ended Wednesday evening on a figure of 1.5402 instead. It was only slightly better, but better than nothing for sure. Thursday took us back in the opposite direction though, giving us a reduced amount of 1.5392 instead. Could we salvage the week and perk up again on Friday?

Things looked more promising on Thursday as the pound finished the day on 1.5554. But if we started to get a little more optimistic we were soon left feeling disappointed again. That’s because Friday blew what little we had gained on Thursday out of the water, leaving us on a sorry 1.5373 to end the week and the month.

The final figure achieved by the pound against the US dollar on Tuesday was a dismal 1.5518. But would it slide even more or could we actually do better than that by the end of the week?
