British pound sterling - market update

Like most currencies, the British pound was strong against the US dollar in early 2018. GBP/USD climbed in late January to a 19-month high of 1.434; then, in line with the broader market for dollar pairs, GBP/USD fell slightly to 1.4 by mid-February.

Against the euro, the pound is little changed since the summer of last year. A GBP/EUR rate of 1.129 in mid-February was more or less identical to that in mid-September, five months earlier.

Brexit continues to be a key driver of GBP rates. Sterling was supported in January after news broke that the Netherlands and Spain had agreed to seek a Brexit deal that would keep Britain as close to the EU as possible – indicative of a softer Brexit. It was then hit in the second week of February when the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator warned that a transitional deal between the EU and the UK was “not a given,” as some investors had come to believe.

2018 Forecasts: At the turn of the year, the majority of banks were forecasting year-end rates for GBP/USD between 1.30 and 1.35. Far more optimistic was ING, which believed sterling would rally to buy 1.5 US dollars by year-end. ING cited the return of broad US dollar weakness, a “positive re-appraisal of the UK economic outlook” and a likely “hawkish re-pricing of Bank of England policy expectations” as reasons for bullishness.

For GBP/EUR, Danske Bank predicted 1.16 for year-end, while UBS went with a much lower rate of 1.05.
