A cheery Pound
16 April 2014

The short week is almost closed on the currency markets with the Easter Bank Holiday takes shape.  We find Sterling in a very strong position, having gained across many of the major currencies over the past few days. The pound has held its improvements by being propped up by data such as CPI inflation and over data across the markets. The drive to continue this trend and provide positive sentiment towards the Pound coupled with the markets indecision towards other currencies.

However, the USD/EUR have both been foul of very mixed data releases in the past few weeks and with the tension escalating in the east of Europe in the Ukraine the impact can be felt across the currencies, the Pound in the perfect position and seaming to enjoy the benefits.

Only some of the positive sentiment towards the Pound has been driven by the morning’s data. We have already seen UK unemployment come in better than expected and showing that the UK economy is on the mend. The Pound gains from this data have held against the Euro. Across, in the Eurozone we have CPI inflation and the US will host speeches from Federal Reserve chamber members and this could cause some volatility for the US Dollar.
