GBP: more strength to come?
Information is not investment advice
Daily charts of GBP/USD and EUR/GBP show a very confident British pound that keeps appreciating over its peers in the Forex market. A prudent trader might think "well, maybe, it's about time the bullish rally for the pound is over"?
Observers say not necessarily. Moreover, they point to a very possible scenario where the British pound appreciates even more.
First, the UK economy is not as bad as you might think. Against the market expectation of a 4.9% contraction in January, the UK GBP fell only 2.9%.
Second - and that's one of the contributing factors to the point above - the rapid vaccinations rollout does its job in the UK. That brings a holistically positive effect to the entire British economy.
Third, economists comment that the high tide for aggressive tech-sector stocks is getting over, and inspired by the recovery, global investors shift to more traditional value stocks - which is what most UK stocks are. Indirectly, that spurs demand for the GBP, too.
These are valid points in favor of the GBP's strength - especially if you go long-term
What to say? Godspeed, GBP, we go together to ride a bullish wave - more upside!

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
