British Pound (GBP) Latest: GBP/USD Benefiting From Weak USD, Treasury Yields

Martin Essex, MSTA, Analyst

GBP price, news and analysis:

  • GBP/USD has now recovered all the ground lost last week, suggesting again that last week’s losses represented a healthy correction within an uptrend and that the move higher could well continue.
  • The latest move reflects a weaker US Dollar prompted by a decline in Treasury yields from their recent highs.

GBP/USD resumes uptrend

The uptrend in GBP/USD, in place since last September, looks to be resuming after last week’s correction lower – with the chart suggesting further gains to come. The latest move reflects a weaker US Dollar, which is suffering from a move lower in Treasury yields after their recent gains.

Talk of an economic recovery later this year, hopes that President-elect Joe Biden will ramp up the US coronavirus vaccine program and the prospect of more fiscal stimulus are all dragging on the safe-haven US Dollar.

Note, though, that GBP is also independently firm, strengthening against currencies such as the Canadian Dollar, the New Zealand Dollar, the Japanese Yen and the Australian Dollar.
