Trade Forex as the Pound Hits Highs and the Euro Weakens
LONDON, May 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Trading forex with City Index enables investors to benefit from changes in the global currency market by taking a position on 37 currency pairs.
Towards the close of trading last week (Friday 27 April 2012), Reuters reported that the British pound had hit two-and-a-half-year highs as investors seeked solace away from the negative economic impact of the Spanish downgrade on the euro.
The pound was boosted towards the 80 pence per euro mark, which could suggest that investors in the foreign exchange market are finding the UK economy's double-dip recession less of an issue than the eurozone's ongoing debt problems and political uncertainty.
Alex Lawson, senior broker at Moneycorp, stated to Reuters: "There is an element of safe haven status for sterling now. If investors want to invest in Europe but don't want to risk Spanish or Italian bonds then the UK is a good proxy,"
