GBP/USD slows down
Last week’s rally in GBP/USD looks to have run out of steam as fears over the breakup of the union dominate thinking. Under normal circumstances the release of this morning’s UK inflation figures would garner the full focus of currency traders; today, however, is not a normal day, and almost everyone in the city will be keeping one eye on developments north of the boarder.
The release of results from this election are due to come in overnight on Thursday and into Friday morning. Either a ‘Yes’ or a ‘No’ will result in a strong market reaction. For the time being the sentiment remains bearish as the negatives are factored in.
