    Euros before article 50? 20th Mar 17 at 7:46 PM
    We're heading off on Honeymoon mid-April. Is it worth getting Euros before the Article 50 stuff that's been announced for 29 March in case the pound tanks?

    Forgive me if this is well trodden ground, if it's not an invoice for something wedding related in the last two months, then the chances are I won't have read it.

    Not again! Anyone who can predict currency movements doesn't need to post on MSE. They are too busy deciding which of their private islands they'll sail their yacht to next.

    Just keep an eye on this site http://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=GBP&to=EUR&view=1M If you see a trough like the one that happened between 10 and 13 March, hang tight for a few days until it rises again. If you're only changing a couple of hundred GBP, don't worry.
