Sterling Digest, March 26 2013: intriguing strength

front page of City AM March 21 2013
Perfect environment for a weaker GBP

Thanks to Cyprus, sterling managed to catch a bid last week on European haven flows. To start this new trading week, however, GBP has traded weak with $GBPUSD, $GBPAUD and $GBPNZD all off their highs of last week. Naturally, sterling still remains stronger versus the euro as the Cypriot crisis still remains. With a relatively light news week from the UK, look for sterling to remain mixed as it gains strength against the euro and possibly the USD but remains weaker against the commodity dollars.
