    It looks like the real impact of Brexit will start to show £14bn loss of trade with Europe.

    Its in the UK and BOE interest to maintain a strong currency due to being a net importing nation. Brexit gives us the wider agilty needed to keep it strong even if its artificial like china

    Rule Britannia!

    It appears that the US vaccination programme has nearly caught the UK now and will surpass the 100m in 100 days significantly.

    Hello,I recently invested in a UK firm (I am American). The value of GBP/USD is at a all time high of 1.38, compared to the 1.2 in the pre-pandemic time. So I got a pretty #$%$ deal, right of the back.In 2 to 3 years, when I sell the UK firm, and I want to return the assets back to USA. In the future, the dollar becomes stronger and the GBP/USD is 1.2.If the stock price is the same now, as it is in 2 years, would I have lost 15% just because of currency exchange?

    I am sure one of you geniuses will tell me what are the strengths underlying the £ against the $. Apart from a slightly faster rollout of the vaccine I can’t see any. Look forward to your comments.

    It is so hard to invest in US stocks when your fighting a losing battle with the exchange rate.

    Sold all my US stocks and converted it to GBP yesterday 1c difference in less than a day. I thought the rising US Bond yields would increase the Value of the Dollar.

    Give it time, it’s all just stimulus/pandemic optimism that’s rising this. Eventually it should calm down and come back down to reality

    Uk economy craters by 10% in 2020 and it looks like post furlong it is going to fall by as much if not more this year plus Billions of £‘a in investment leaving the economy now.
