Intra-Day FX Performance

Euro Hit by Italian Political Risks, GBP Gains Despite Firm USD - US Market Open

Once again the Pound is better bid this morning with yesterday’s pushback from BoE’s Bailey on negative rates continuing to underpin. Elsewhere, EUR/GBP has continued to head lower with the cross now eyeing key support at 0.8860. That said, the Euro remains capped as Italian political risks are on the rise again amid criticisms around the proposed governance of the Next Generation EU funds, which in turn has seen former PM Renzi threaten to pull his party out of the ruling coalition. Meanwhile, the US Dollar hovered around intra-day highs as the greenback consolidates with US CPI prompting a rather muted reaction.
