2010 for the Economy and the Currency

It's a new Monday, and a new year to boot. So what will this year have in store as far as Britain's economy, politics and its currency are concerned?

Quite a lot, as it happens...for one, there is a general election in store which could see the first new party for 13 years - a fact which is in itself likely to affect markets and the economy.

2009 was a roller coaster year for the country, with the pound reaching near parity with the euro - a stance which has not altered much and indeed many currency experts are now gathering their views on what is in store for sterling in the year ahead.

Will it reach parity and beyond, falling behind the euro? Or will it start an upward climb once more?
