UK Pound Crashes – Lowest Level vs Dollar in 7 Years!

money-roll

Fellow gamers – that means the time to buy UK goods for Americans – IS NOW!

Stock market data with uptrend vector. 3d render.

You all may not be following international affairs but there is a lot of economic and political drama in Great Britain at the moment.

uk-eu

The UK is holding a referendum on whether to stay or leave the European Union.  It’s a HUGE deal with enormous ramifications regardless of which way the vote goes. The date has now been set for the UK to vote on whether to stay or leave the EU.

On June 23rd, foreign exchange markets are forecast to see dramatic movement, with the GBP/EUR and GBP/USD exchange rates likely to become very volatile depending on the outcome.  In the meantime there is a lot of financial uncertainty and that has been pulling the exchange rate of the Pound vs the US dollar ever lower.

Pound to Dollar - CRASH

As of today, the pound is trading at $1.39 USD to 1 Pound – The lowest it has been in 7 years!

But as the old saw goes, one man’s loss is another man’s gain.

For anyone with US dollars in pocket wanting to buy UK goods in Pounds, the time to strike is NOW!

So whatever your fancy from Forge World, to Mantic, to Warlord Games, Prodos, Hawk, Spartan and dozens more – do your buying sooner than later while your US Dollars are at a peak of buying power.

~Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking!

    “Leave Europe,” Farage said.

    “It’ll be fine,” he said.

    • wibbling

      Arguably we must leave the EU. The EU is causing so much damage we do ourselves – and the rest of Europe – no good remaining in.

      • Shawn

        Isn’t all the money of the EU interrelated so much that if one countries economy fails, then the rest will follow suit?

        • euansmith

          Nope.

        • Me

          I am no expert, but I think (operative word) that because the UK kept the British Pound instead of going to the Euro, the performance of each is at least somewhat insulated from the other.

          • Shawn

            Thanks Me. I’m not expert on politics, especially European, but I was under the impression that such a vast economic infrastructure was interelatted and if one country had problems, so too did the others. And, from what you’re telling me Britain was smart enough to keep the pound around, so they’re not as bad off as they could be.

        • Michael Bradbury

          The opposite. The point of the EU is that if one country fails then it helped out by the others.

          • Shawn

            Gotcha. That worked out “real good” for Greece then didn’t it?

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        look at the incredible mess our governments make of the things they are in charge of. Its only the fact that some things are run from Europe that means the UK is even habitable!

        But you want to leave and let the Tories rule us forever without any supervision?

        • knightsanguis

          This. Both Labour and the Tories have brought this country to its knees in just about all aspects, but mostly economically and socially. However, I’d trust Labour way more than the Tories simply because they’re at the very least tolerable. The Tories are and always have been a party for the super-rich. They’ll let massive corporations get away with billions of pounds worth of tax each year, while still expecting smaller British businesses to pay through the roof in their bills – which inevitably leads to a lot of them closing down. I’m no expert on economy, but I like to think I have a basic understanding of how it works and forgive me if I’m wrong here, but less businesses open means less jobs going, which means more people unemployed and on benefits. Couple that with billions of pounds of tax evasion and you’ve set yourself up for a really crappy economy.

          On top of it all, they have the audacity to privatize everything and tell the sick and disabled, as well as the working class people that they rely too much on these services and their benefits – all whilst giving themselves a nice 10% pay rise.

          Don’t get me wrong – I am in no way a fan of the EU. I think their government is also corrupt as hell. But I think we’d be better of sticking with the devil we know in this case. I can’t even begin to imagine what a Britain under complete Tory rule will look like.

          Sorry about the political rant here. I just despise our government so much because of its blatant corruption and hypocrisy.

          • Thomas Gardiner

            +1

            The EU has problems and there are plenty of legitimate reasons to leave. But I don’t want to leave on the Tories’ terms. I’d rather reform Europe to make it more transparent and democratic, not throw the baby out with the bathwater and end up in a Tory-dominated country with no Human Rights act, no worker’s protections, no common environmental approach etc.

    • euansmith

      I know that the market is based entirely of confidence rather than anything objective, but it is rather alarming that this drop is coming off the back of the announcement of the date of the referendum; the mind boggles what will happen if the nation actually votes, “Yes”!

      • Slaanesh Devotee

        I think the drop is on the prospect of the UK voting ‘no’ to staying in the EU

        If, when the referendum date was announced, there could have been a cast iron guarantee that UK would vote ‘yes’ to stay, the pound wouldn’t have fallen like that..

        • Jason Brown

          Wait is it yes to stay or yes to leave? – Houston, we have a problem here….

          • Slaanesh Devotee

            The UK government has awarded the positive ‘yes’ campaign to the pro-EU side by wording the question as ‘Should Britain remain a member of the EU?’.

          • Nicholas Hartley

            It’s actually worded “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?” with the options being ‘stay and ‘leave’ (so neither side has the ‘positive’ campaign)

          • Slaanesh Devotee

            Oh, so they changed it. Well I think that’s much fairer.

          • kensaix

            no problem, we are not U.S.-stupid over here

          • Sputnikwriter

            Ha! Good one.

      • wibbling

        This is where Cameron has deliberately not explained the process of leaving and what he would get when we vote to leave. It creates incredible amounts of FUD which only adds to the ‘in’ camp.

        • Ross Allan

          Except Farage and Co can’t even agree what Britain outside the EU would do. Why? Because a lot of anti-EU sentiment is simply racism over immigration.

          • August P. Bjørkeng

            Not wanting to become a minority in your own country and cities is racist. Got it.

          • Benjamin E

            And there they go! Hey there, UKIP party member! Tell us how great fascism is and how scary minorities are.

            I’m kidding, don’t. Get the hell out.

          • August P. Bjørkeng

            To be honest, the eastern europeans would need to leave as well. Not because of racial or cultural incompatabilities, but their cheap labour harms native workers.

          • Henry Faulkner

            the cost of labour is in control of employers. if they paid a fair wage it wouldn’t matter. not only that, a high percentage of immigrants start their own business, bringing more money in to the economy, even employing people. britain has the largest amount of citizens living in other countries in all of europe. we are a nation of immigrants, people come and go a lot. who cares what nationality the person is who is doing the job? anyone can go for any job, the competition is fair. if the wages aren’t fair, or nationals aren’t willing to work for it, that isn’t a problem with immigrants, but with the system as a whole. whatever happens in europe, it will affects us massively, so we may as well have a say in it instead of leaving and having to follow their rules with no input whatsoever.

          • Me

            The cost of labour in most non-leftist countries is a product of supply and demand. High supply (more people willing to take a job) means lower pricing (wages). Low supply (fewer people willing to take a job) means high prices (higher wages). That is why it is called a labour market.

            Can employers buck that trend? Sure, but it puts them at a competitive disadvantage that they have to make up for somewhere else.

          • Marky

            Your idea of a closed system does not work in reality… Crime pays.

          • amaximus167

            “…but their cheap labour harms native workers.”

            We hear this same line of complete BS here in the states. Minus the ‘u’ in labor of course.

            If the UK’s situation is anywhere close to the US’s, then the immigrants are taking the jobs that the snobby US citizens do not want. Why do the snobby US citizens not want them? Because they do not pay enough for how much they citizen values themselves. Because the job seems plebeian. Because they would rather, more likely than not, NOT be employed than work such menial jobs!

            The real reason most people here say “…but their cheap labour harms native workers.” is as a smoke screen for racism and cultural differences.

          • August P. Bjørkeng

            It does harm native workers, and it stops automatization.
            The “menial” and “plebian” jobs can be easily automated.

            This is a low wage agriculture worker without illegal and legal worker immigration: http://si.wsj.net/public/resources/images/IV-AA249_ROBOT2_P_20121010130229.jpg

            this is fast food worker http://fabiusmaximus.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/minwagememe.jpg (minimum wage meme, but you should get the point)

          • Shawn

            I’ts not racism. What the problem is that Americans are UNWILLING to work labor jobs to earn money. They think they’re too good for those low-end hard working jobs. They want the high end paying jobs, but are unwilling to work hard to achieve them. Many think they’re too valuable for such work and then cry that they can’t survive because the minimum wage is too low. Many immigrants know the value of hard work and are willing to take low end jobs because it’s a start in a new country and will lead to better things.

          • amaximus167

            So, you and I agree completely on what is happening in the US. So explain to me how these same people that are unwilling to work labor jobs yelling about how immigrants are stealing these jobs that they don’t want isn’t racism?

          • Me

            Racism implies a motive based on race.

            While I mostly agree with Shawn, part of it also has to do with what people are willing to pay, which in turn is a result of the labor market. The presence of additional workers in any field of work drives the wage down in that field.

            If there were not as large a labor force, the employers would have no choice but to raise the wage to get enough workers. Ultimately, this is something consumers would pay for. No matter how hard or nasty a job is, if you offer enough money to do it, you will get people willing to take it on. Asbestos removal is an example of this.

            I do not have any problem whatsoever with immigrants from any country. I do have a problem with illegal immigration because I do not think anyone who breaks the law should be rewarded for it. Note that most illegal immigration is from overstaying visas, and that involves all kinds of ethnicities. I also blame our government more than that group of immigrants. Lastly, I wouldn’t deport them or even arrest them for the most part. I would throw the people who hire them in federal prison for a long time.

            My problem with your statement is that you ascribe motives with no evidence to back it up. When I look at someone else, I do not care what they look or sound like. All I see is a human being. I try to think about what I would do if I were in their place, and hope that they would do the same for me. As someone rather harshly mentioned in a post above, calling someone a racist (or any other ad-hominem attack) is generally 1) factually incorrect and 2) just a way to try and shut them up as opposed to arguing the merits.

          • amaximus167

            My point is, that the immigrants are not taking any jobs from the native citizens as the native citizens don’t want them. Also, I disagree with your assessment of ‘offer enough money’ as I has seen plenty of decent paying jobs only get filled with immigrants as the US born citizen just plain doesn’t want to do the work. There are a ton of mexican and russian immigrants doing back breaking tile and flooring jobs that the majority of pampered US kids will often not do. Not to say that there are not US kids willing to do it at all. Just not enough to fill those positions. That pays really well but most of them say, ‘to hell with that’ and quit after less than a week. There is a cleaning company at the place I am currently working. The majority of their employees are also immigrants. The pay is above average but the pampered kids don’t want to clean for a living, even if it is just a stepping stone. How many white guys do you see out doing landscaping? Not too many, they would seem to rather be inside, in the A/C, at a cube. Last I checked that wasn’t a shabby check.

            So then using that as a reason to say ‘we need to get those immigrants out,’ is a false reason. If you want immigrants out, then you must have other reasons. The majority of the people that I know that use that excuse also just plain don’t like the immigrants because of their race. Spend enough time with them and it will come out. Sure, my ‘evidence’ is anecdotal, but it is something that I have seen way too much for me to believe that it is only within a small bubble that I somehow have the misfortune to inhabit. And let’s be honest, 100%, these kinds of people are not going to go on record and say that they want a group of immigrants to leave because of racial issues. Hell no! There would be a crap tempest to weather. So they grab onto things that seem less about race and more about economy. Now, I am not trying to imply that anyone that prescribes to the idea that ‘immigrants are stealing out jobs’ are racists. But being that it is demonstrably false, or more complex that that simple statement, they are certainly being somewhat ignorant of the complexity of the issue.

            Let’s be honest again, the bigger issue is not immigrants coming to our country and taking jobs we don’t want, it is our companies moving to other countries to pay employees less for the jobs that our people DO want.

          • Me

            “they are certainly being somewhat ignorant of the complexity of the issue”
            Yes sir. People are lazy, and that includes of thought. In a country where a lot of people get their hard news from Comedy Central and are much more versed on “reality TV” (I HATE that moniker) than on reality, we certainly have our share of stupidity.

            It is also not completely about exporting jobs or illegal immigration. There are people testifying this week in front of congress about training their foreign born replacements (I think it was at Disney World). I do not in this case blame the immigrant or the company, but again our politicians.

            For your last statement… If both the cost of labor and taxes are lower, I can understand why they do that. I do not like it, but I understand it. They have a fiduciary responsibility to increase profit. The best way to keep that from happening is to lower corporate taxes. We are the third highest behind only Chad and the UAE.

          • amaximus167

            I too LOATH reality TV’s moniker.

            I certainly understand what you’re saying and agree some of it.

            Any real change to what is happening currently will have to be through multiple channels across many fronts. It is not as simple as ‘send them home!’ or in some cases even as simple as ‘raise the wage.’ All of these ‘one slogan’ solutions are worthless if not in tandem with actual workable solutions.

          • Marky

            How do you know the natives don’t want them? Have you visited a reservation to ask?

          • amaximus167

          • Michael Bradbury

            True, but one key difference is that for all their faults UKIP actually mean it, whereas Trump is only going down that road because he thinks its a vote winner.

            kick all the foreign workers out by all means, just don’t complain when you have to wait a week in casualty before a doctor sees you.

          • knightsanguis

            Yep. And given Jeremy (C)Hunt’s new contract, don’t expect to see many British doctors either.

          • Haighus

            I upvoted this as soon as I got to ‘(C)Hunt’, but the rest of your comment is valid too…

          • Haighus

            To be fair, most doctors in the UK are still British (at the moment… see Jeremy (C)Hunt comment below…), although a significant chunk of UK doctors are second/third/fourth generation etc. from immigrant parents, which I think still confuses some people. Still British, certainly as far as I’m concerned.

          • euansmith

            Indeed, I struggle to sympathies with people we think that simply being born in a country gives them more of a right to the advantages of that nation than someone who has had to risk everything upping sticks and moving to the country.

            I was born in the UK and my family has been here for hundreds of years, and yet I don’t begrudge someone the opportunity to come over here and chance their arm. I am actually very grateful for them having the balls to give it a go. 😉

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation
          • Haighus

            Doesn’t invalidate my statement, although the figure is higher than I thought 🙂 It would be one hell of a shock to the system and would make healthcare pretty untenable if all of them left (although a good chunk won’t be EU and therefore the referendum won’t affect them especially).

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            it wouldn’t be just a shock, the system would collapse as British doctors all left because of the increased workload.

          • Jooster

            I don’t think you understand what the word “minority” means. Because the native population is still far and away the most numerous.

          • euansmith

            No, not wanting to become a minority in your own country and cities is cheap populist political rhetoric.

          • Marky

            And it assumes segregation of groups is based on birth country… Which it isn’t for me. I am a gamer and I am a mountain biker…. That’s the group’s which I relate to.

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            a couple of million refugees in a Europe of 300 million people is hardly making anyone a minority.

          • knightsanguis

            Why are you so scared of becoming a minority? You’re acting as if they’re treated badly here. Oh wait…

          • Marky

            Yip, you have got it that statement does indeed make you a racist (even though we r the same race)

          • Benjamin E

            It’s the classic UKIP party line of ‘First we leave the UK, and then we through out all the indians, africans, eastern europeans, jews…’ It’s all very BUF, I’m sure Oswald Mosley would be proud of them.

          • August P. Bjørkeng

            Im pretty sure Mosley (PBUH) would be more proud of the lads in National Action, than Nigel Farage, but that wouldnt be very polemic wouldnt it?

          • euansmith

            I know its a typo, but the idea of Farage saying “First we leave the UK…” seems highly unlikely. 😉

          • Marky

            And he will want to keep Scotland in there so there is somewhere to get cheap Labour and put dangerous stuff.

          • NunUfYourBeeswax

            Ah racism. The fallback for idealogical bigots and small minded cowards who feel they have to attack the person instead of the position on its merits. “My half of the argument sucks, so I’ll just call them racist/bigot/whateverphobe and shut them down.”

            While they really exist, racists are a teeny tiny minority of people who are generally ostracized by society at large.

            You must indeed have special powers to be able to read the hearts and mind of such a large group of people you’ve never met.

          • Michael Bradbury

            “racists are a teeny tiny minority of people who are generally ostracized by society at large”

            If you think bigots are a minority then try walking through Glasgow or Belfast in a rangers or Celtic strip at night.

          • Muninwing

            i’ll argue that most of racism is either small-minded hate or one manifestation of class/economic indicators… but if you sweep the huge amount of race-related statistics under the rug because it’s inconvenient to look at, then you’re part of the reason why those statistics are allowed to perpetuate.

          • amaximus167

            I’ve met them. And oddly enough they all use the ‘immigrants stealing our jobs’ line as way of making their intolerance seem justifiable.

            It is small minded cowards that refuse to admit that systemic racism is at the heart of a lot of this. Saying something is based on or steeped in racism as a whole is not calling each individual a racist.

            Also, hilarious that you chastise people for ‘criticizing the person’ while in fact criticizing people yourself.

          • Muninwing

            listening to some people, it seems only the US has that going on.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        it genuinely worries me. I sell about 1/3rd of my instruments to Europe. Europe is where most of my competitors are. If people have to pay import duty on my instruments then they will most likely go elsewhere and my business will be badly hit.

        Plus I travel to work in Scandinavia every year, that will become impossible without work permits so that part of my business will also be destroyed.

        Lastly I love Scandinavia and would like to live there once my parents are gone and don’t need looking after. Again this will be impossible.

        The UK, especially a Tory dominated UK, will feel terribly claustrophobic if we can’t go and live elsewhere should we want to.

        We are all Europeans, we belong together.

          I fear that many people will be swayed by the staunchly anti-European “newspapers”. It will be odd for Viscount Rothermere as he is the head of the Daily Mail and General Trust plc and yet also is French for tax reasons.

      I’m going to have to advertise from more mules… um… innocent tourists to fulfill my upsurge in orders.

            Spiky Dark Eldar and Chaos models cost extra to smuggle.

    • wibbling

      Ditto – we’re seeing more spending from US customers too. This is a good thing. Trade makes everyone better off.

    • WHAT THE HELLS GOING ON?!

      same here!

  • Slaanesh Devotee

    I remember the time when I spent a month staying in US, and my pound bought 2 dollars… I felt so rich while I was there that time. That was fun.

    This could be bad news for Kickstarter projects like Mantics Walking Dead, which is finishing soon.

    • GRex

      You are right, they haven’t even come close to their funding goal.

      • ted1138

        I’m pretty sure they have.

      Fixed that

    I would like to vote for Cameron to leave the EU.

      At least give the poor man a dead pig to keep him company

      • Muninwing

        does the pig have to be dead? how did that ep of Black Mirror go?

        • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

          if his animal handling skills are anything like his interpersonal skills the pig will have to be dead for it not to try and kill him.

          • Thomas Gardiner

            This thread is the best =D

    • euansmith

      I’m sure this and the the thread above aren’t at all what Larry was expecting when post an article saying, “Wow, look at this exchange rate! Cheap GW goodies, people!” 😀

  • GRex

    Man it would be nice to order some GW from retailers in England right now.

    • DeathBy SnuSnu

      Yeah it would right? Except of course GW’s policy of royally screwing anybody in a market not in the US or the UK. Their local NZ prices haven’t reflected economic reality in terms of exchange rate or shipping costs for over a decade now.

      • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

        can you not buy from Ebay.co.uk ?

  • Sean

    I’ve noticed some of my FW orders don’t necessarily use the exchange rate that you can pull up each day in google. Does anyone know they way the exchange works? Is it on a week delay or do they get their exchange rate from somewhere else?

    • vlad78

      I think you can deliberatly use the pound currency, according to your type of payment card, your own bank will make the change.

  • Defenestratus

    A devalued currency has a lot of benefits as well. The price of exports falls, inventories get shipped overseas. With fuel prices so low its ridiculously cheap to send something across the ocean these days (incidentally I just read a shipping article about how fuel for the ships is so cheap, that they’re opting to go around the cape of good hope instead of the suez right now)
    At any rate, there’s a silver lining to devalued currency. Not all will see it, but believe me the guys in the Jaguar and Land Rover HQ office are seeing opportunity. (Sigh, about to sign on the dotted line for a Range Rover Sport. I’m betting the parts that fall off of it will be of the finest British quality)

    • Deacon Ix

      My Father in Law has one – just don’t fill it with the wrong fuel – £12k bill to repair…

      • Defenestratus

        Well its the wife’s vehicle and she’s been forewarned. 😛

          They were boasting about 8.2 mpg? What’s the tradition? Terrible fuel economy?

          • euansmith

            It is one of a number of running gags in “Robocop”. 😉

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            I’d buy that for a dollar!

      • Marky

        I had a jeep once, got bored replacing headgaskets 🙂

        • euansmith

          I liked your replies to my comments that got deleted.

  • James Tompsett

    This drop in value is a good thing. Have you seen our industrial trade deficit? There’s been a race to the bottom which we’ve been losing recently. Ignore the headlines, this is far from disasterous.

  • Jonathan B.

    Maybe it’s time to buy that Primarch.

  • Benderisgreat

    Okay, but GW stuff is still overpriced.

  • Xodis

    Ok, maybe you guys are right. GW reported a loss because of the strength of the Pound, so they broke it…..wow GW has the power!!!

  • WellSpokenMan

    Heading over in April. Thanks guys, I appreciate it.

    • Azhrarn

      Same for me in June, please keep this up a little longer. 😛

  • Shawn

    Uh, this isn’t really news. Well, the financial uncertainty in Britain is news worthy, but the pound had been at 1.40 USD for months. I’ll wait and see what March brings. If it goes lower, then that will be the time to buy.

  • JimOnMars

    The prices (in US Dollars) are not floating! Buying now only makes a difference if you pay in Pounds, which isn’t allowed if shipping to the US. GW Keeps the exchange gain.

  • Richard Mitchell

    To bad I mostly buy and play American. AMERICA! F’YA!

  • Chris. K Cook

    Now if only Abbott hadn’t flushed the Aussie Dollar down the Toilet I’d be buying all of the Forge World….
