Sterling (GBP) – A Potentially Testing Week Ahead

A raft of high-profile central bank rate decisions and releases will keep Sterling traders on their toes in the coming week. While no rate changes are expected, there is a possibility that one or all the central banks – ECB, BoC and RBA – may well give the market a dovish surprise. In addition, the latest monthly US Labour Report is released on Friday and may well add credibility to the currently strong US dollar.

DailyFX Economic Data and Events Calendar.

Brexit discussions continue, and the next two weeks are crucial and will decide Sterling’s fortune in the coming months. Talk continues to suggest that a last-minute settlement will be reached, either by March 29 or at the end of a two-to-three month extension of the Withdrawal Agreement.

Sterling Weekly Technical Outlook: GBP Slipping but Still Positive.

Sterling remains resilient against a range of currencies, although this bullishness may well be tested this week. EURGBP remains under 0.8620 as we write while GBPUSD trades either side of 1.3200.
