Pound Sterling Price News and Forecast: GBP/USD bullish potential limited, with UK inflation, Ukraine in spotlight


GBP/USD Weekly Forecast: Bullish potential limited, with UK inflation, Ukraine in spotlight

GBP/USD staged an impressive comeback, as the US dollar failed to capitalize on the hawkish Federal Reserve (Fed) outlook.

GBP/USD Forecast: Pound recovers modestly, 1.3100 still under threat

GBP/USD has staged a recovery after dipping below 1.3100 on Thursday but has lost its momentum early Friday.

The pound had been hitherto trading lower, weighed by the Bank of England’s dovish statement, after releasing its monetary policy decision on Thursday, while the sourer market mood, as hopes of progress in the Russia – Ukraine peace talks start to fade have favored the safe-haven USD, thus increasing negative pressure on the GBP.
