Low Fuel Prices See Pound Dip

The slight kerbing of inflation due to low fuel prices should have been welcome news to consumers, but it turns out this inflation dip has actually weakened the pound even further.

Low fuel prices see pound dip

It was revealed that inflation had dropped 0.3 per cent in the last month. This was caused by lower fuel prices, which took a little pressure off consumers. Or so it was thought, but the announcement actually saw the pound drop even further in value, due to worries that this news would harden the Bank of England’s stand on holding interest rates where they are.

A volatile market

For the past few months, our traders have been saying the same thing over and over – Avoid trading on the pound. It’s volatility, showcased by this latest drop, is all the proof anyone would need to say that trading on the pound could be a headache.

Protecting yourself

For those who insist on trading in a volatile market, it’s imperative that they have a robust risk management system in place. If they were to trade without a stop loss and a currency shifted as the pound did, they could lose a lot of money. A stop loss can protect more than 98 per cent of your trading fund.
