British Pound Surges Above 1.3100

The buying interest around the GBPUSD remains well and sound so far on Wednesday as the British Pound surged above 1.3100. What is next?

19 September, OctaFX – Cable has broken above the 1.3200 mark after UK inflation figures tracked by the CPI rose more than initially estimated during August.

In fact, headline consumer prices rose at a monthly 0.7% and 2.7% over the last twelve months, while prices stripping food and energy costs rose at an annualized 2.1%.

In the meantime, Cable remains supported by the persistent weakness around the greenback and the generalized better tone in the risk-associated sphere, all despite lingering uncertainty regarding the Brexit negotiations.
