Forex Market: Sterling Reaches 5 Month High of $1.32

The environment for the British currency in the Bitcoin Up market has been more complicated than beneficial. However, after a negative performance, the Pound is now at a 5-month high, recovering.

Things have not been easy for the British currency for some time now. Unlike other countries, the UK has had to deal with complicated economic problems, even long before the pandemic.

Thus, the economic effect of the Coronavirus hit the British country hardest, deepening its economic recession that began after Brexit.

However, new news seems to give positive airs to the recovery of the British country, and the British Pound, as a currency of confidence.

Dollar Remains Weak Awaiting Employment Data

The British Pound reaches its peak
The British Pound rose to a five-month high against the Dollar and headed for $1.32.

This follows a less pessimistic statement by the Bank of England, referring to the recovery in the British economy battered by the Coronavirus, reports Reuters.

However, despite this good news that the British Pound is reaching a high. The central bank said that the British economy would not recover to its size by the end of 2019 until the end of next year.

This is a later estimate than their previous estimate of a recovery by the second half of 2021. But at least its projections for 2020 were less bleak than in May.

„Overall, the Bank of England’s economic outlook is relatively less moderate than expected. The absence of a strong signal in favour of negative rates opens the door to further gains for the pound in the short term,“ MUFG analysts told customers.

Dollar Continues to Freefall

The British Pound achieves a maximum of 5 months. It has risen by 8% against the US dollar since July. And short positions in the Brexit hit currency declined as traders shifted their negative outlook to the dollar.

They have finally reversed almost all of their losses against the dollar after a March and April settlement that was fueled by the pandemic.
