The British Pound maintained its position near two-month highs against the United States Dollar as investors awaited crucial news on UK inflation. Official Consumer Price Index data for April is set for release on Wednesday, with market expectations anticipating a slight easing in the headline rate to 2.1% from March’s 3.2%.

The ‘core’ rate, excluding food and fuel prices, is forecasted to come in at 3.6%. Speculation suggests that UK rates might start to decrease from their inflation peaks soon, with a potential rate adjustment in June. The Bank of England’s upcoming rate decision on June 20, following May’s inflation figures, could impact market sentiments. Any unexpected weakness in prices could reinforce expectations of a rate adjustment in June, potentially affecting the strength of the Pound against the Dollar.

Despite Sterling’s recent gains due to positive UK economic news and improved risk appetite, the US Dollar remains supported by favorable monetary policy comparisons, with higher US borrowing costs expected to persist. Minutes from the Federal Reserve’s May policy meeting are also due, but recent and upcoming Fed communications may overshadow their impact on trading decisions.

Happy Trading!
