ANALYSIS

 


GBP/USD to turn back lower in the near-term – MUFG

 


“The prospect of a rate hike by Q2 2022 presents a lot of ‘ifs and buts’ with this scenario that suggest this bounce in GBP could easily correct.”

 


“While we have a bullish view on the pound, the catalyst for this bounce yesterday may not be sustained. We also need to monitor the very near-term risk of the Indian variant of COVID-19 potentially derailing the full reversal from lockdown scheduled for 21st June. We could well see some reversal of GBP gains over the short-term.”
