What can affect the GBP & USD exchange rate?

Developments in the political relationship between the UK and the US, as well as each country’s individual economic performance both have an impact on the GBP to USD and USD to GBP exchange rate.

Economic data for both countries is released throughout each month and provides a clearer idea of the economic stability of the country. Investors watch out for the economic data to decide whether to invest in the USD or to sell, while also listening intently to political leaders and influencers. This can affect confidence in whether to convert pounds to dollars and vice versa.

That is why keeping track of the upturns and downturns in the exchange rate is integral to ensuring your money goes as far as it can when making an international payment to the USA, making a business payment or making a personal transfer abroad.
