GBP/USD has been under mild pressure as US yields boost the dollar. Britain’s reopening and calm on the vaccine front are helping boost sterling. Tuesday’s four-hour chart is painting a mixed picture. “Nobody is safe until everybody is safe” – these words of unity from UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his colleagues in Germany and France have come after a cross-Channel row over vaccines and serve to calm nerves and supports sterling. Concerns about deliveries of inoculations have now subsided. Even if the UK’s immunization campaign somewhat slows down, it has reached nearly 50% of the population with at least one dose and the results are clear – cases and hospitalizations are falling. Moreover, London recorded no COVID-19 deaths on Monday – the first such feat in 2021. The comparison to continental Europe is overwhelming, but Britain is also beating the US -not only vaccinations but also in infections. America’s CDC warned of an “impending doom” despite the rapid immunization drive. Source: FT On the other hand, the dollar is on the move, gaining ground alongside higher bond yields. President Joe Biden is set to unveil his infrastructure spending plan on Wednesday and he may refrain from introducing new taxes in the first phase. That implies higher debt, more bond issuance, and therefore rising returns on Uncle Sam’s IOUs. Moreover, the White House grand plans – which include huge wind farms and other green initiatives – may push inflation higher. If the Federal Reserve is forced to hike borrowing costs, that would also support the greenback. A gauge of how Americans feel about the recovery comes from the Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence measure for March. An increase is on the cards.
