In the late weeks of 2007 short-term interest rates extending over the year-end (into Stage 2) could become highly volatile and reach large positive or negative levels--depending on expectations regarding the opening level of the pound against the euro.
Gradually through Stage 2 households would dispose of their euro banknotes to a large extent in exchange for florin banknotes--in anticipation of Stage 3 when mandatory requirements for dual pricing would come to an end (and florins would be the conventional denominator for most retail trans actions).
The whole proceedings from start to finish would be smoothest where there were strong and widespread expectations that the florin would trade at around parity with the euro both during Stage 2 and beyond.
