The Brexit door is open but could yet slam shut

When Parliament votes on the Brexit deal on the 11th December, its decision will cause instant reaction across the currency markets. Whether tha reaction is good bad or ugly will depend on your position, but whichever way it goes it should be the stabilising finish to the Brexit process.

With markets sitting on uncertainty it means many investors are making huge bets about what way currencies will go. Whilst these choppy waters continue, it will be a rather turbulent time for anyone buying or selling currency. The trick to buying and selling at the right time is….there is no trick. You have to try to foresee events and reach a general conclusion about what way the wind is blowing rather than analyse every tiny detail of world events.

It is very rare that markets will shift so significantly to cause you massive gains or losses in the short term and so you should continue to buy and sell when it is necessary for you. You can be a little up or a little down, but usually it will remain roughly level within a 24 hour period.

The key is to watch for those events on the horizon that history tells you will make an impact. The Brexit debate on the 11th is one of those events.

So on the 11th keep your eyes and ears on the event itself, don’t wait and see what’s happened on the 10 o’clock news that night because by then it’ll be too late.
