Sterling Digest, April 28 2012: weak sectors can’t stop sterling

House and UK Pounds

UK housing market may still be weak but sterling sure isn't

$GBPUSD slaughtered bears today as it charged to new yearly highs to close the week above 1.6250. That’s a bullish statement. The nice thing about this trend is that there have been corrections along the way so it is hardly overbought. And while this rally started in the midst of UK QE3, now that the central bank has turned hawkish there may be no stopping this sterling rally. Despite what you may think about the UK economy, it is the central bank’s turn in sentiment that strengthens sterling right now. And that makes this rally for real.
