British Pound (GBP) Forecast: GBP/USD Unmoved in Early Trade as U.S.  Celebrates Juneteenth

GBP/USD FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

Last week’s rollercoaster ride for FX markets is unlikely to extend through to today as the Juneteenth holiday in the U.S. should come with lower market volatility. Through the Asian session, price action on GBP/USD has been muted with no significant news/announcements from the weekend.

Earlier this morning the UK’s Treasury Minister Simon Clarke did mention that they do no expect a recession which may have given rise to cable’s marginal rise shortly after the statement.

A reminder of the upcoming events this week include inflation data for the UK on Wednesday (see calendar below) along with fed Chair Jerome Powell’s testimony. Both could influence GBP/USD as well as the current central bank (Bank of England (BoE) and Fed) narratives. A stronger inflation print may well prompt the BoE to hike by 50bps in August which they have left open for consideration (mentioned in last week’s BoE rate decision).

Later today, we do have the BoE’s Mann and Haskel speaking with discussions around last week’s rate decision and associated risks being addressed.
