Sterling stuck near five-week lows as dollar bounces on yield rise
Wednesday, 25 April 2018 23:26 WIB | CURRENCIES |poundSterling,Poundsterling

Sterling fell against the dollar on Wednesday as the U.S. currency strengthened on the back of rising Treasury yields, while traders remained cautious ahead of British first-quarter economic growth numbers due on Friday.

The release will be the last key data issued before the Bank of England™s Monetary Policy Committee meeting early next month, and markets are split over whether the central bank will raise interest rates.

Governor Mark Carney dented confidence that a rate hike would happen when he said last week that Britain™s economic data was œmixed and that there were several other MPC meetings later this year.

That sent sterling plummeting from post-Brexit vote highs and left it down for the month of April.

The pound did snap its losing streak and rise on Tuesday and overnight on news of a potentially positive M&A deal.

The pound fell 0.3 percent to $1.3938 (0.9996 pounds) as the dollar gained across most major currencies, and sterling was left close to a five-week low of $1.3919.

Sterling remains more than four cents off its post-Brexit vote highs of $1.4377 hit last week.

Against the euro, which some analysts say is currently a better gauge, given that there has been considerable dollar-specific news this week, sterling gained 0.2 percent to 87.380 pence per euro.
