“However”, continued Laura, “investors are expecting the ECB to reiterate its purpose to keep policy loose for the foreseeable future.

If that proves to be the crate, Sterling might be able to claw back some losses.”

If, as suggested by investors, polices are slackened, the pound may be able to rise up against the euro.
