The Australian Dollar (AUD) extended Friday’s gains against the British Pound (GBP), the cross reaching 0.5260 (1.9015) Monday as risk markets rallied. Early Tuesday moves suggest a turn of the tide, the Aussie recovering to 0.5240 (1.9090). Bank of England’s Bailey spoke earlier today saying “it’s far too early to be thinking about rate cuts”, inflation risks remain with food price inflation ahead. The Labour market although it softened lately also still remains elevated. We expect the 0.5260 (1.9015) level will be well protected this week and the GBP to be supported.
Current Level: 1.9069
Last Weeks Range: 1.9017 – 1.9315
