Sterling Digest, May 23, 2012: flip-flop


Bank of England logo

Adam Posen’s flip-flop on QE makes the Bank of England more dovish especially as economic data continues to deteriorate at an alarmingly fast rate. While the $GBPUSD and $GBPJPY have been sterling weak, these pairs’ move lower is also tied to increased risk aversion. Conversely, sterling has remained very robust against the commodity dollars. Both the $GBPAUD and $GBPNZD have already made new highs on the week. Will tomorrow’s UK GDP release be the final nail in the GBP coffin?
