The exchange rate between the pound and the euro has indeed fallen victim to volatility created by ongoing Brexit discussions that have happened in recent weeks.
However, despite growing concerns over whether the United Kingdom will manage to successfully come to an arrangement, the pound has remained relatively unaffected and is managing to hold on to its current position.
Late last week, Boris Johnson made the decision to walk away from trade talk negotiations according to the BBC. In spite of this, leaders in the EU have stated that it is willing to increase talks in order to try to achieve a deal.
In a recent tweet, the European Commission’s Head of Task Force for Relations with the United Kingdom Michel Barnier said: “As stated by President @vonderleyen on Friday, I confirmed that the EU remains available to intensify talks in London this week, on all subjects, and based on legal texts.”
Despite a lack of a secure deal, however, the British pound has remained steady against the Euro in the last 24 hours of trading. Michael Brown, a currency expert at Caxton FX has given his insight into the current GBP/EUR exchange rate, by saying; “Sterling ended the day unchanged against the euro yesterday, largely ignoring the continued to-in and fro-ing over Brexit, taking the bluster from both sides for exactly what it was, and just plodding along without a care in the world.”

On the technical side of things, the analysts over at UOB expect the currency pair to continue on the current trajectory and trade between 1.2845 and 1.3050 over the next few weeks. Last week they held the view that the British pound is likely to trade on a slight defensive mode with the 1.3050 level acting as a strong resistance.
Right now the key things to look out for are whether county-wide lockdowns begin to ease, so local businesses can reopen and inject money back into the economy, which will show strength causing the pound to rise back to stronger levels.
