Pound, Dollar Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD under pressure as prime minister Boris Johnson remains under scrutiny
  • Bank of England (BoE) expected to rate hikes, an additional catalyst for Sterling
  • US NFP data expected to influence price action

The British Pound has managed to edge slightly higher as investors price in higher rates. With inflation data weighing on markets, the US employment data and the release of non-farm payrolls on Friday will likely pose as an additional catalyst for price action.
