British Pound Breaking News: UK PMI Heightens Hawkish Bets, GBP Strengthens  Against USD and EUR


UK PMI’s revealed both sectors (composite) exceeding estimates despite manufacturing coming slightly below forecasts – see economic calendar below. This print comes on the back of significant misses in the eurozone earlier this morning by way of France and Germany.

Yesterday’s UK inflation print coupled with todays UK PMI numbers may open up the possibility for the Bank of England (BoE) to move towards a 50bps rate hike in the next meeting. The economy may not be teetering just yet and could help in the inflation fight.


Initial market reaction shows GBP bulls coming to the fore as hawkish bets increase on both GBP/USD and EUR/GBP charts respectively.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
