Pound Struggles To Break Through $1.30 After Labour Election Manifesto
Friday, 22 November 2019 00:07 WIB | CURRENCIES |GBP/USDPoundsterlingSterling,pound

The pound struggled to break through the $1.30-mark yet again on Thursday, as a rebound in the dollar and an election manifesto from the opposition Labour Party that fuelled some profit-taking on the British currency.

In its fourth attempt to break through $1.30 in nearly two months, the pound struggled to gain momentum as investors moved to the sidelines before the Dec. 12 election.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn unveiled his party's election manifesto on Thursday, setting out radical plans to transform Britain with public sector pay rises, higher taxes on companies and a sweeping nationalisation of infrastructure.

Following the release of the manifesto, the pound edged 0.1% lower against a broadly resurgent dollar to $1.2908 and weakened against the euro at 85.74 pence. The currency had slipped to a five-day low of $1.2888 after Tuesday™s televised debate in which Corbyn was seen to have performed better than expected.
