British Pound Forecast: GBP/USD Heading Swiftly Toward March 2020 Lows

GBP/USD FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

Cable has been unable to shirk off a surging USD, while the appointment of Prime Minister Liz Truss has provided no respite. If anything, the appointment looks to deliver more downside risk for the currency as proposed fiscal support measures of £130bn (energy) and £40bn (business) respectively adds to an already poor UK current account situation (see graphic below).

Fundamentally, high inflation, high energy prices, increasing deficit, recessionary fears and post-Brexit uncertainty have resulted in investors shying away from the UK as shown by UK 10Y Gilt yields pushing above 3%. While Truss’s efforts may relieve the weight on consumers short-term, the long term effects could be severe for low income and indebted citizens.
