Sterling holds weaker due to London attacks

On Monday, the British pound held weaker in Asia because financial markets digested a weekend attack in London, which murdered seven people after a van suddenly mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge, then attackers from the van fanned out and got down to stabbing folks at nearby bars and restaurants. Analysts say that the attack burst out due to the fact Egypt and major Gulf Countries unexpectedly snapped diplomatic and commercial ties with Qatar because of terrorism support charges.

The currency pair GBP/USD hit 1.2869, sliding 0.14%.

The US dollar index, estimating the greenback’s actual strength against six main currencies, tacked on 0.17%, demonstrating 96.77. 

The currency pair USD/JPY inched up 0.27%, being worth 110.69, while AUD/USD tacked on 0.16%, trading at 0.7454.

China’s Caixin Services PMI headed north to 52.8, which is higher than the 51.4 level observed for May and up steeply from 51.5 in April.
