Rishi Sunak starts confidently
Yesterday, after a meeting with King Charles III, Rishi Sunak officially became the new Prime Minister of the UK. Sunak is extremely determined to strengthen the British economy. He has previously spoken out harshly about Liz Truss' politics. Besides, Sunak is really into cryptocurrencies, and from his submission, British legislators voted to recognize cryptocurrencies as regulated financial instruments.
The British Pound jumped to a 6-week high and UK bond yields fell as Rishi Sunak promised to correct Truss's mistakes. Now the GBP is 1.1590. The next target is 1.1745, the closest resistance level since September 13.
