Key quotes

“The UK GfK consumer confidence survey unsurprisingly showed a sharp fall. The headline figure for the final March reading was -34, down from a February reading of -9.”

“Fears that this year’s virus-associated recession could be lengthened by the inability of the UK and the EU to sort out a trade deal before the start of 2021 could enhance downside potential for GBP.”

“Tomorrow, there will be a call between Eurozone finance ministers.  A continued failure to compromise could widen the perceived cracks in the Eurozone and weigh on the EUR.”

“While Eurozone politics could limit downside pressure for EUR/GBP in the coming weeks, we expect cable will remain soft.  We see scope for another dip to 1.19 on a 3-month view.”
