The dip in EUR/GBP following the strong UK inflation prints yesterday proved short -lived as expected and the cross ended the day slightly higher, notes Senior Analyst, Piet P.H. Christiansen at Danske Bank.
“The market is already pricing in a 19bp hike in May and we see limited potential for additional pricing at this early stage. We see risks moderately skewed to the upside for EUR/GBP near term, with Brexit negotiations stuck internally. Strategically, we are bearish EUR/GBP and would consider selling EUR/GBP on rallies above 0.8950.”
