British Pound Latest – GBP/USD Pushing Higher on US Dollar Weakness

Jul 29, 2022 | DailyFX

  • The Bank of England (BoE) looks set to ratchet rates higher next week.
  • GBP/USD daily chart looks positive.

Cable is going into the weekend in a fairly upbeat mood and has just printed a fresh one-month high around 1.2245. While Sterling has picked up a small bid over the last two weeks, the driver of the move this week has been a weaker US dollar. The greenback, a one-way trade since June last year, is losing its shine post-FOMC after chair Powell suggested that the Fed may pause rate hikes, when appropriate, the first time this view has been aired. The US dollar has noticeably weakened across the board over the last two days.

    • Look ahead to 31/5/23: China PMI; France GDP; Germany CPI Economic data is key on Wednesday. It starts in Japan with retail sales, followed by Chinese PMI.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 30 May 2023  IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the chances that the Chinese yuan will weaken further as it becomes more and more obvious that the recovery in China is further away than initially expected. Then in the eurozone we’re looking at the CAC 40 and DAX as growth and inflation data is released. The only corporate on the schedule is from stationers, WH Smith.          
    • Charting the Markets: 30 May FTSE 100 lower while DAX moves higher in early trading, and Dow looks to edge up following reports of debt ceiling deal. EUR/USD declining and USD/JPY holding firm, while GBP/USD begins to show signs of a higher low. Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 30 May 2023  Gold’s pullback slows down, while Brent crude turns lower and natural gas struggles to hold the 50-day MA.               This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
