    GBP to USD at 1.3769 is near its 90-day average, range 1.3426-1.3961.
      1 USD = 0.7263 GBP

    The pound sunk in September to 1.34 against the greenback but has recovered into October near 1.36 after Boris called the army out to drive the fuel trucks.

    The outlook for the pound for October is very uncertain due to rising inflation, slowing growth and unemployment, the combination of which could create a nightmare scenario for the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee.

    OFX predict the GBP could range between 1.33 – 1.38 USD in October.

    The USD had a strong month in September, outperforming all the G10 currencies. The gains can be attributed to more ‘hawkish’ commentary from the US Federal Reserve, especially in comparison to the European Central Bank.

    According to OFX the USD trend for October is unclear.

    USD Outlook

    Last year the pound hit its highest level vs the US dollar since April 2018 against the US dollar on the final day of the year and has since continued higher to 3-YEAR-HIGHS around $1.40. Markets remain optimistic about GBP as the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines add to the currency’s relief rally following the Brexit trade deal.
