Monthly exchange rate of British pound to U.S. dollar 2015-2019

British pound sterling (GBP) to U.S. dollar (USD) monthly exchange rate from January 2015 to August 2019

Monthly exchange rate of British pound to U.S. dollar 2015-2019 The month end exchange rate of the British pound (GBP) to U.S. dollar (USD) between January 2015 and August 2019 has seen an overall decrease from 1.5 USD to GBP in January 2015 to 1.22 as of the end of August 2019. The sharpest fall in the exchange rate during this period was seen after the United Kingdom (UK) held a referendum on its European Union membership in June 2016.
What affects an exchange rate

There are several factors that can affect an exchange rate. In terms of the current situation, the political and economic standings surrounding Brexit is probably the largest driver in the current form of the British pound. Other factors include inflation and interest rates, public debts, deficits as well as the country's export prices to import prices ratio.

British pound to Euro

Since the United Kingdom (UK) held a referendum on its European Union membership in June 2016, the British pound's (GBP) standing against the Euro has been taking a downward slide. As of the end of August 2019, it appears that the British pound's positioning has matched the lows seen in August 2017 due to the growing uncertainty of a no-deal future. The increased risk of a no deal Brexit is likely to see the pound fall even lower in the coming months and may have a knock-on effect for inflation rates.
