The Pound has been steadily gaining versus the Euro for the last week. The ECB President, Christine Lagarde, indicated in a press conference that the ECB might raise interest rates sooner rather than later. This caused an immediate weakening of the Pound although the rate reversed again a week ago and has been steadily climbing since. Today sees further speeches from the ECB President so it could be an interesting day for GBP/EUR.
Against the Dollar the Pound has been in a relatively tight range since the start of the year and with no scheduled news from the States today it's unlikely the rate will shift hugely.
