GBP posts gains but Euro sees losses on volatile days trading

AUDGBP Bounces After Setting Lows for the Year

Sterling exchange rates posted small gains against the Australian dollar as the Euro experienced heavy losses bringing levels close to 1.24. As my colleagues have discussed in previous posts, the uncertainty surrounding Cyprus has created a great deal of market volatility and uncertainty heading into a busy trading week. With the Australian dollar still classified as a riskier currency this may well cause some big swings for the Aussie as investors will often shy away from the dollar in times of uncertainty. Tomorrows minutes from the Reserve Bank of Australia may also lead to some short term volatility and anyone with an interest in the Australian dollar should watch out for this release for any insight as to the banks stance on monetary policy, any hint towards future interest rate cuts and we could see the dollar weaken, likewise if the bank have not discussed monetary loosening then watch for dollar strength.
