GBP: more strength to come?
2021-03-12 • Updated
Daily charts of GBP/USD and EUR/GBP show a very confident British pound that keeps appreciating over its peers in the Forex market. A prudent trader might think "well, maybe, it's about time the bullish rally for the pound is over"?
Observers say not necessarily. Moreover, they point to a very possible scenario where the British pound appreciates even more.
First, the UK economy is not as bad as you might think. Against the market expectation of a 4.9% contraction in January, the UK GBP fell only 2.9%.
Second - and that's one of the contributing factors to the point above - the rapid vaccinations rollout does its job in the UK. That brings a holistically positive effect to the entire British economy.
Third, economists comment that the high tide for aggressive tech-sector stocks is getting over, and inspired by the recovery, global investors shift to more traditional value stocks - which is what most UK stocks are. Indirectly, that spurs demand for the GBP, too.
These are valid points in favor of the GBP's strength - especially if you go long-term
