GBP/EUR: Pound Tumbles vs. Euro As Brexit Project Fear Steps Up A Gear

The pound euro (GBP/EUR) exchange rate remains below €1.13, after booking losses last week.

The euro rose as recession fears eased thanks to falling gas prices and as China reopens after zero-Covid.

Today attention is on  German wholesale inflation, which is expected to fall to 13% YoY in December, down from 14.9%.

The pound is treading water after UK GDP unexpectedly rose in November. The economy grow 0.1% MoM, defying expectations of a -0.2% contraction. This raises the prospect of the economy avoiding a recession in Q4.

BoE Governor Andrew Bailey is due to speak later. Investors will be watching for clues over the future path of interest rates.
