The pound's rise is predicated on a rise today in the interest rate.

Since June 24 2016 the reason has been Brexit. For one day only, it's
the interest rate rise. Now it's back down to €1.12 this morning.

In those terms, it has never been Brexit. Not once. Brexit hasn't
happened yet - as you like to tell us.

The fall in the pound has largely been due to the uncertainty of this
period of, er, uncertainty!

And the uncertainty is largely caused by the problems of getting out of
the EU. Fortunately, they are time-limited.

Surely one of the most severe cases of mental block denial known to society.

The pound went down 10% in the ten minutes after the leave result was announced in the wee small hours of 24th June 2016. No other factor could possibly attributed to this unprecedented decline. Despite the subject of this thread in well over a year it has NEVER recovered.

How you can possibly imagine that there is any other factor than Brexit was involved in this major long term change in the value of our currency beggars belief.

Just face it - virtually no one who actually has any money to invest has any confidence that Brexit will be positive for the economy and that is why the pound is in the dumps.

no that's my point

just because they are sure it will be bad for them does not mean it will be
bad for the hoi polloi. It is a fiction that it will be.

It will be bad for them because no longer being able to rely upon the
endless supply of minimum wage workers they will have to spend more on
attracting staff from the local population

This will push up their costs (meaning that they will bank lower profits)
but enhance the working condition for the lower orders

At least you've provided some sort of backup for your claim. And I am
quite willing to take it apart!

E.g.:

CBI urges business to back euro. 1998.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/120407.stm.

A majority of British companies wants the UK to join the European single
currency as soon as possible, says John Entwistle, the president of the
British Chambers of Commerce (BCC). 1998.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/113876.stm

They could hardly have been more wrong.

This is bollocks.

Rolling a dice would have snow in July as likely as December.

Weather has strong autocorrelation. The weather today is more likely to
be like the weather yesterday than like a random guess. Weather
forcasters outperform 'like yesterday'. Even out to a couple of weeks
they outperform.

Once you progress beyond the short term then you're talking climate
rather than weather. But any 'weather forcasting technique' that makes
the temperatures in June the same as December demonstrates real
incompetence.

Yes people who CAN think, think Brexit will be very bad for the UK.
No, they guess. They're as likely to be right as a weather forecast.
Weather forcasters have skill. They are more likely to be right than the
null hypothesis that it will be the same tomorrow as today.
for tomorrow's weather agreed

for 4-5 days hence, not

their track record for that is no better than, "if it's summer it will be
bright and clear, if it's winter it will be cold and rainy"

Plus, they also have some of the most powerful supercomputers in the
world, just as economists and other professional experts do.

And their "forecast" with regard to the outcome of Brexit is almost
universally stormclouds, extreme weather conditions and our prospects
for the future washed away.

Pound rebounds back above $1.31 against the dollar amid reports that
Theresa May will reassert her authority in a Cabinet reshuffle
With a cat o nine tails?
The pound's rise is predicated on a rise today in the interest rate.
So what? There's usually a reason for everything.
Since June 24 2016 the reason has been Brexit. For one day only, it's
the interest rate rise. Now it's back down to €1.12 this morning.
In those terms, it has never been Brexit. Not once. Brexit hasn't
happened yet - as you like to tell us.
No, but the referendum has happened, and that was enough to generate
uncertainty, trhereby causing the pound to fall in value. There is NO
other explanation for the significant fall just a few hours after the
result was announced.

The pound this year struggled to muster a 5p recovery against the
US dollar but that is 15p below pre-referendum rates.

The signs are that the pound will fall significantly against
the dollar by year end.

https://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=GBP&to=USD&view=2Y

No wonder Leavers have been recently declaring it's not about the
money. They conveniently choose to forget Leave's main slogan was
saving £350 million every week.

There are no patterns, no signs, and no signals in charts as charlatans
would have you believe. And you're incredibly naive if you think there are.

It's a market. There are as many buyers as there are sellers at today's
rate, and that rate factors in everybody's future expectations. The
next move will be randomly up or down.

If you think you're cleverer than anyone else or more prescient, you
could put that to better use than just arguing here.

But I'd advise against it.

It's your proposition. It's for you to prove if you want anyone to
believe it.

In any case, it's a well-known fact that fund managers selecting shares
do not generally do as well as a machine blindly following the relevant
Stock Exchange Index.

http://fortune.com/2017/04/13/stock-indexes-beat-mutual-funds/

That proves they do not have any magical powers or even any skill.

They'd like you to believe otherwise of course in order to justify their
hefty fees, but the truth is they can't and that's because share prices,
just like currency exchange rates, go up and down randomly.

If you toss a coin 5 times, once in every 32 trials on average you will
get 5 heads. When you do, it's not because you're great at tossing
heads, but because you've been average. One in 32 currency
'forecasters' will similarly be correct whichever way currencies move.
The difference is, they will swear blind it's because of their talent.

But it isn't. One in 32 kids tossing coins will be just as 'brilliant'.

The ones they pay high salaries to are just the lucky ones who happened
to guess right and have survived. But there's no logical reason to
think that their luck will continue. It's just luck, after all.

Go make your fortune then. Knowing the future is a
wonderful opportunity.
You can't use that as an excuse for failing to use Google.
Reports indicate that they detect signs the pound will fall
significantly against the dollar by year end.
If you completely disgaree with specialists' forecasts then
send them an email. Perhaps it's worth mentioning to them
you have no specialist qualifications yourself and no one
else believes your forecast. Post the replies here.
There are no patterns, no signs, and no signals in charts as
charlatans would have you believe. And you're incredibly
naive if you think there are.
It's a market. There are as many buyers as there are
sellers at today's rate, and that rate factors in
everybody's future expectations. The next move will be
randomly up or down.
It's not at random at all. You don't have a clue, do you?
Currency exchange rate movement is not a Markov process.
It is actually, but so what?
It is a Markov process? Please! Currency exchange rates vary
accoridng to a process which has, at any one moment, a
significant component of memory.

What next? The kids from the nursery picking Monday's
exchange rates at random as accurately as a professional
forecaster?
If they can toss a coin, they'll be as accurate as any
forecaster. The trouble with it being random is that some
forecasters are bound to be right, but that's not down to
skill, it's down to luck.
Currency rate 'forecasters' are probably as good as
stockbrokers are at selecting investments, where
three-quarters of them are beaten by purely mechanical passive
tracker funds.

If you think you're cleverer than anyone else or more

arguing here. But I'd advise against it.
Forecasters are better at their job than you (or your nursery kids).
Prove it.
It's sad to see such cynicism without an iota of proof to back
up your catcalling.
It's your proposition. It's for you to prove if you want anyone
to believe it.
It's always the same wriggling with you, isn't it? It is not for

In any case, it's a well-known fact that fund managers selecting
shares do not generally do as well as a machine blindly
following the relevant Stock Exchange Index.
http://fortune.com/2017/04/13/stock-indexes-beat-mutual-funds/
That proves they do not have any magical powers or even any
skill.
The performance of a tracker fund does not have anything to do
with currency exchange rate forecasts.

They'd like you to believe otherwise of course in order to
justify their hefty fees, but the truth is they can't and that's
because share prices, just like currency exchange rates, go up
and down randomly.
Ticker micromovements may be seemingly random on account of their
unpredictablity but they are a long way from being genuinely
random.

Any trends over a few weeks are far more Bayesian than you
suggest.

If you toss a coin 5 times, once in every 32 trials on average
you will get 5 heads. When you do, it's not because you're
great at tossing heads, but because you've been average. One in
32 currency 'forecasters' will similarly be correct whichever
way currencies move. The difference is, they will swear blind
it's because of their talent.
But it isn't. One in 32 kids tossing coins will be just as
'brilliant'.
That would help formulate a null hypothesis. But currency
forecasters get better results more frequently than such a null
hypothesis.

By your reckoning a 10 days' rise is likely once in 1,024
sequences which is every three years. In the real world, you
don't have to wait 3 years to see a 10 days' rise!

If currency movements (and their amplitude) were purely random
then the graph would not show the strong trends they do. These are
not occuring purely by chance.

Perhaps you should now write a letter to
companies which pay high salaries to currency forecasters to
let them know their money is wasted and you have a coin which
is as good as their forecasters are. They will think you are
drunk.
The ones they pay high salaries to are just the lucky ones who
happened to guess right and have survived. But there's no
logical reason to think that their luck will continue. It's
just luck, after all.
Simple persistence forecasting would give better outcomes than
your randomness. I wonder why currency futures exist at all if
the whole market is totally random.

You are out of your depth here. Maybe you watched a tv
documentary on probability and don't remember it properly?

Or maybe you once learned a little bit about probability but
didn't understand it properly and now misapply it here, just as
you did last week when you claimed rates of growth were a second
derivative. It's nonsense in both cases.

Pound rebounds back above $1.31 against the dollar amid reports that
Theresa May will reassert her authority in a Cabinet
reshuffle
With a cat o nine tails?
The pound's rise is predicated on a rise today in the
interest rate.
So what? There's usually a reason for everything.
Since June 24 2016 the reason has been Brexit. For one day
only, it's the interest rate rise. Now it's back down to
1.12 this morning.
In those terms, it has never been Brexit. Not once. Brexit
hasn't happened yet - as you like to tell us.
No, but the referendum has happened, and that was enough to
generate uncertainty, trhereby causing the pound to fall in
value. There is NO other explanation for the significant fall
just a few hours after the result was announced.

No wonder Leavers have been recently declaring it's not about the
money. They conveniently choose to forget Leave's main slogan was
saving £350 million every week.
If Brexiters wait long enouigh to start some serious negotiatin', the
£350 million will be worth a couple of wheelbarrows full of currency.

Since June 24 2016 the reason has been Brexit. For one day
only, it's the interest rate rise. Now it's back down to
1.12 this morning.
In those terms, it has never been Brexit. Not once. Brexit
hasn't happened yet - as you like to tell us.
No, but the referendum has happened, and that was enough to
generate uncertainty, trhereby causing the pound to fall in
value. There is NO other explanation for the significant fall
just a few hours after the result was announced.

Few minutes MM.
The pound this year struggled to muster a 5p recovery against the
US dollar but that is 15p below pre-referendum rates.
The signs are that the pound will fall significantly against
the dollar by year end.

No wonder Leavers have been recently declaring it's not about the
money. They conveniently choose to forget Leave's main slogan was
saving =A3350 million every week.
If Brexiters wait long enouigh to start some serious negotiatin', the
=A3350 million will be worth a couple of wheelbarrows full of currency=
.

I've always said we should just get on with it.

Pound rebounds back above $1.31 against the dollar amid reports that
Theresa May will reassert her authority in a Cabinet reshuffle
With a cat o nine tails?
The pound's rise is predicated on a rise today in the interest rate.
So what? There's usually a reason for everything.
Since June 24 2016 the reason has been Brexit. For one day only, it's
the interest rate rise. Now it's back down to €1.12 this morning.

No, but the referendum has happened, and that was enough to generate
uncertainty, trhereby causing the pound to fall in value. There is NO
other explanation for the significant fall just a few hours after the
result was announced.
Good. Very good! Now that you have (finally) recognised that the pound
fell due to uncertainty remember that _certainty will return_ as the
Brexit negotiations complete.

No wonder imported goods seem so expensive.

A devalued pound may be great for UK business which can export at
bargain basement prices (and then the bosses and shareholders pocket
the profits).... but it's not so good for UK consumers.

At this rate we will be able to afford only British-made goods.

I remember the crap goods we used to be offered back in the 60s.
The little Union Jack sticker on goods back then was a sure sign
they were inferior, had fewer features and were less reliable than
equivalent imported German or Japanese goods.

I hope we're not going back to the old days when UK manufacturers
could jack up prices for poor quality goods because they had
little competition and imported goods attracted punitive tariffs.

Back then, anything to do with products in the UK was likely to be poor,
as was anything to do with public services. Workers and unions were top
of the tree. The doctrine was that economic activity was to maintain jobs.

Since the "revolution", the top of the tree is now the customer. And
that's a good thing - a very good thing. It has led the UK from the
economic doldrums to the first of the trade winds. The genie is out of
that bottle and it's not likely to go back.

Brexit is nothing to do with patriotism (well not for me anyway). I just hate EU regulations. I hate all regulations. And having 30 countries impose rules on me is a lot worse than just 1.

No it fell around 1% - the rebound in the subject line - which way was it?

Uncertainty ahead of the vote, but more than half within ten minutes of the result.

I doubt the pound fell as much on 3rd September 1939, and that was a big foreign policy disaster.

I doubt the pound fell as much on 3rd September 1939, and that was a big foreign policy disaster.

Pound rebounds back above $1.31 against the dollar amid reports that
Theresa May will reassert her authority in a Cabinet reshuffle
With a cat o nine tails?
The pound's rise is predicated on a rise today in the interest rate.
MM
No it fell around 1% - the rebound in the subject line - which way was it?
"... inflation is above target - but the Bank argues that the main driver of that is sterling's 18% decline in value since late 2015, with the biggest fall coming directly after the Brexit referendum."
Mark Carney played a hand in the fall of the pound by lowering interest rates straight after the referendum in the erroneous belief that we were heading for economic ruin the next day.

Yes he did, as did Cameron by resigning, the pound fell another 10% in the days and weeks following the vote.

These secondary losses have now been recovered, but the 10% directly and immediately because of a leave vote is still with us, as every family going on a foreign holiday since can testify.

Indeed - although quite a lot for just one day. The point was that the pound fell on a rate rise, when the usual expectation is a rise. Something to do with lack of confidence due to the Brexit fiasco...

It's not quite a lot for a day if it goes up and down all the time with fluctuations. I wouldn't say "winter's coming" because my garden thermometer was 4C less than yesterday. It may well go back up again tomorrow.

More of Birdbrain Macaw's (now "James Wilkinson" LOL) sociopathic world:
"Most animals don't attack me, even though their owners tell me they're
dangerous. I had to laugh at one woman who ran out to tell me her dog was
going to bite my hand off, then saw me petting it. I once bought a parrot
that was extremely vicious. I walked into his house and picked it up, then
cuddled it. He said he'd never seen it do that in 10 years."

I do worry when people explain about short-term fluctuations. And
we are seeingmore and more such explanations in relation to
Brexit.

It's as if such folks believe no one in their working lives has
ever encountered the notion. It probably says more about the
speaker than anything else.

Did you mean it fell AFTER the new rate was actually announced? In the
morning the euro was at €1.14 to the pound. Now it's back to €1.12.

A 2 cent change makes a noticeable difference to what I receive in
sterling from my German pension. For a business, dealing with tens of
thousands of pounds a month, that difference can be huge.

But you prefer to make a joke about it.
