Pound Rallies as Risk Appetite Returns, Traders Await News on Johnson
Tuesday, 7 April 2020 23:33 WIB | CURRENCIES |PoundsterlingSterling,pound

Sterling rallied on Tuesday with a broad rebound in risk markets encouraging some selling of the dollar, while traders awaited news on British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is stable in intensive care as he battles COVID-19 symptoms.

Johnson, 55, was moved into intensive care late on Monday after his condition deteriorated rapidly over the preceding 24 hours. His foreign minister is deputizing for him to lead the government's response to the outbreak.

Analysts said that while news of Johnson™s condition was clearly a concern, beyond a short-lived dip in Asian hours it had not yet moved the pound because it was unlikely to mean a change in the government's policy direction to fight the virus.

Against the dollar, sterling extended its overnight gains in London, rising more than 1.2% to as high as $1.2383 before settling at $1.2321. Against the euro, sterling did far less well and was down 0.2% at 88.38 pence.
