    GBP in the Markets

    The coronavirus pandemic had replaced Brexit in the headlines for most of last year. In 2021 the pound has held or even improved its value while markets sort through the aftermath of Brexit and the improved vaccine response from the UK.

    After outperforming in the first quarter, April saw the pound consolidate versus the euro and the US dollar.

    Last year, 2020 the year of COVID, British pound forecasts were almost entirely driven by the effects and response to the Coronavirus pandemic rather than any fundamentals of the British economy.

    However as we progress through 2021, the British pound is being buffeted by predictions of rising interest rates and inflation as the world starts the slow path to recovery from the pandemic.

    One potential risk going forward is any news emerging around virus strains resistant to the current vaccines.

    OFX see the pound could trade against the USD in a range between 1.37 – 1.40 USD and against the euro 1.1450–1.1750 EUR.
