GBP/USD FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

Has a troublesome job forward however at the very least the central financial institution has had per week extra to investigate the present state of affairs after the prior assembly date was postponed sue to the Queens unlucky demise.
Cash markets are at present pricing in roughly 50% likelihood of both a 50bps or 75bps rate of interest hike however after reviewing final week’s UK financial knowledge I are inclined to favor the previous. With GBP so weak at the moment second, the 50bps hike might add to additional draw back and heighten inflationary pressures for the UK. As well as, the Fed might be seeking to proceed its aggressive path in direction of quelling inflation so it will likely be fascinating to see whether or not or not the BoE reacts to the Fed notably in the event that they select to be ultra-hawkish and entrance load charges by 100bps.
