All the results proving that Sterling was climbing against the EUR/USD – further to the morning data unemployment rates came in below setting a fall for the Dollar.

Overlooking the other major data releases last week included Euro-zone inflation dropped year on year to 0.8%, causing the European Central Bank to worry about a potential deflation scenario. Still this did not the European leaders signing off the next set of the Greece €8.5bn bailout package.
As we look much closer to home we have already this morning see the release of German Industrial data and Swiss inflation has come in above the expected which has given the Euro some small gains against the GBP/USD.

Below is the International Payments team’s likely volatile data, which could affect you when sending money abroad.
