Analysis of recent Dollar→Sterling forecasts for 2024. We collate forecasts from respected FX analysts together with the latest US dollar to Pound Sterling performance and trends.
Forecasts for USD to GBP
Recent forecasts by a panel of Reuters forex strategists suggest that the U.S. dollar's strength, buoyed by a solid domestic economy and high Treasury yields, is expected to pose a stiff challenge to most major currencies, including the British Pound, by year-end. FX analysts emphasize that despite periods of softness, the greenback has shown remarkable resilience amidst global growth concerns and China's economic woes impacting risk sentiments. This strength is projected to carry into 2024; however, a modest weakening trend is anticipated against key currencies as the Federal Reserve potentially gears up for an interest rate cut. Economists forecast that the dollar's robustness experienced over the past year will likely start to reverse as the Fed concludes its rate hiking cycle into 2024.
On the other side of the pond, the GBP's outlook appears more subdued, with FX strategists from institutions such as Wells Fargo and TD Securities predicting a potential slump for the Pound to 1.20 or below against the Dollar by early 2024. The market view, which includes assessments by Danske Bank and Commerzbank, points to a bearish scenario for Sterling, driven by factors like the expected halt of policy tightening by the Bank of England and the consequent loss of interest rate support. Furthermore, both HSBC and Barclays have shifted from a bullish stance to a more cautious outlook on the Pound, as the seemingly indomitable strength of the dollar overshadows the UK currency. They note that dwindling consumer confidence in the UK and the Eurozone could predict economic underperformance ahead, which, combined with the currency's high volatility and sensitivity to political events like Brexit, could lead to rapid exchange rate fluctuations.
Reflecting on the recent USD/GBP price data, it is apparent that the exchange rate of 0.7901 stands below its 3-month average, evidencing a reasonably stable trend in the market. However, with Cable proving to be a momentum-driven pairing, there remains the potential for the exchange rate to deviate from forecasted paths considerably, responding dynamically to shifts in economic indicators and central bank policies.
