Some experts have shared this could have affected the exchange rate today.
Michael Brown, currency expert at Caxton FX, spoke exclusively with Express.co.uk to share his analysis.
He said: “Sterling starts the day, and the week, on the front foot against its G10 peers.
He continued to say there are no events likely to drastically impact the sterling at the beginning of this week.
However, it is expected to stay similar to where it is in the coming days, Michael added.
He added: “The day ahead is quiet, though given the momentum-driven nature of today’s markets, we can expect sterling to remain rather well-bid.”
Last week, the strength of the sterling changed immediately after the elections took place on Thursday May 6.
It was also impacted by the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, which took place on the same day.
Michael explained those events caused the sterling to go down.
On Friday, Michael commented: “Sterling lost ground, modestly, against the common currency, despite a bullish set of forecasts from the Bank of England, as a ‘buy the rumour, sell the fact’ trade played out.
Last week, the Government confirmed travel can take place from May 17 meaning Britons could be looking to exchange money soon.
Transport secretary Grant Shapps listed 12 countries those in England can travel to from May 17 and confirmed those we can not travel to.
Portugal, Gibraltar, Israel and Australia were all named as ‘green list’ locations which can be visited from next week without the need to quarantine.
Other countries have either been put on the ‘amber’ or ‘red’ list.
Those on the ‘amber’ list means Britons who travel back from the will need to quarantine, and people are urged not to travel to ‘red’ list countries.
