Will the Pound crash on negative rates?

Desperate times for call for desperate measures.

The UK economy has shrunk by 24.5% according to the ONS – a scale never before seen before in history.

As a result, the Bank of England is now considering the mindboggling: “negative” interest rates.

This could have serious knock-on effects for the Pound.

Falling interest rates weaken a currency. Negative rates are far more extreme.

The Pound has been resilient recently as Coronavirus data has improved. However, economic reality awaits.

But often sitting back and hoping for a certain rate in the future can be counterproductive and costly.
