Pound in the spotlight this week

The Pound has started this week on relatively firm footing.

With Covid cases receding in the UK, investors are focusing on the recovery story.

The IMF recently revised its 2021 growth forecast for the UK up to 7% - which is the joint highest growth rate of the major advanced economies (along with the USA).

As things improve, both the UK and US central banks are making noises about tightening their ultra-loose policies.

Speaking of which, the Bank of England meets this Thursday for their monthly chat.

Central bank meetings can be big market movers even if nothing actually happens. That’s because ‘forward guidance’ (hints about the future) is a critical part of their mandate. This will no doubt put the Pound in the spotlight tomorrow.

With so much global uncertainty, there is plenty that could change in the weeks ahead.

For those with currency requirements, it pays to be ready to make the most of opportunities as they arise.
