WHAT IMPACTS THE EUR/GBP EXCHANGE RATE
EUR/GBP, also known as the Euro Pound, is among the most popular currency pairs traded in the forex market. Although it is not included in the list of the majors, it is considered to be a minor forex pair, and also sees significant activity in the markets. The exchange rate of the EUR/GBP is influenced heavily by important economic data releases, monetary policy decisions by the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of England (BOE) and political developments. Among the economic data releases, the ones that drive the highest price action in the EUR and the GBP include GDP, employment rate, inflation, trade balance, manufacturing and services activity, retail sales, business sentiment and consumer confidence.  EUR/GBP also sees significant volatility whenever the ECB or the BOE announces any changes to their monetary policy decisions, including changes to interest rates and announcement of stimulus measures. Central bank decisions are closely watched to assess the strength of a nation's economy and currency. When a central bank hikes interest rates, it indicates growing confidence in economic conditions, strengthening the currency and vice versa.  Key political developments also have an important role in determining the exchange rate of the Euro Pound. One of the most significant issues in recent years that has driven volatility in this currency pair is Brexit. For instance, worries of a no deal Brexit drive this pair higher while progress in negotiations between Britain and the EU turns EUR/GBP bearish.
