Is the pound facing an existential crisis?


Recommended Posts

Pound v Dollar

Kamal Sharma, a foreign exchange strategist based in London said: “Sterling's fall from grace has been epic given last year's euphoria and in many ways has caught the investor community by surprise.

‚ÄúThis has resulted in a confusing communication strategy: hiking rates against a sharply slowing economy is never a good look for any currency.‚ÄĚ

The Bank of England continuing to hike interest rates won’t be enough to rescue the pound, strategist Kamal Sharma said in a note.

The pound has been on a steady decline since June 2021 versus the dollar.

Is ‚ÄėPoliticization of policy‚Äô undermining the pound and is the pound the third-worst performing major currency this year ?

Has the European migration back triggered the pound fall? Did Brexit come to late? Is the current migration, labour needs, integration and sentiments just a few factors that balances major FX pairs? There will be times when places will end the constructions started decades ago and other places will still be under reconstructions for many years ahead leading to a possible zero rate of unemployment, is it known the bottom while the movement and markets movement are influenced by negative news?

    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?¬† for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has ¬£30 billion market cap, i get the same error.¬† 1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
