Recent newspaper reports that the government may speed up the lockdown unwind timetable may well add some positive sentiment to UK asset markets and balance out some of the ongoing EU/UK trade negation stalemate. COVID-19 fatality and infection rates continue to fall and may give PM Boris Johnson the opportunity to help boost the ailing UK economy.
GBP/USDcontinues to consolidate recent gains and further upside may be seen if GBP-speculators start to cut some of their short positions which are now at their highest levels since December last year.
Cable is currently running into short-term resistance off the 200-dma at 1.2732/34 and this level may come pressure if the US dollar sell-off continues. The latest FOMC meeting on Wednesday needs to be followed closely.
