The Week Ahead: 13th – 17th November 2023

Overview for the Week Ahead 

The Euro has ascended to a six-month peak against the Pound Sterling, capping off a week with consistent gains as the EUR/GBP pair approached 0.8750. This rise comes despite mixed economic data from both the European Union and the United Kingdom, where the UK’s figures have notably underperformed even when exceeding forecasts. 

At the close of the week, the Euro’s strength was evident as it nearly hit the 0.8750 mark against the Pound. The upward trajectory has been consistent since August, when the EUR/GBP saw low closes around 0.8520.  

Looking ahead, a suite of key economic indicators is set to be released in the coming week. On Tuesday, investors will eye the UK labour and wage data alongside the EU’s third-quarter GDP figures. Wednesday will see the UK’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation data and the EU’s Industrial Production numbers come to light. The week will conclude with Friday’s announcements of UK Retail Sales and EU’s Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (HICP). 

Investors and analysts alike will be closely monitoring these releases for indications of economic health and potential impacts on currency valuations in a market that continues to weigh mixed signals from two of Europe’s leading economies. 

In other news, Bitcoin has dropped by 0.3% in the past 24 hours to trade at $36,989.32 currently. Compared to last week, however, it is up by 4.94%.
