    The pound snapped a 3-week winning run last week, after the Bank of England pushed back aggressively on the interest rate path priced by markets, despite announcing a 75bps hike, the largest move in over 30 years.

    Sterling’s weakness took cable back beneath the 1.14 handle and was exacerbated by sizeable dollar demand owing to a hawkish Fed decision, along with shaky risk appetite.

    Looking ahead, this week’s calendar is a quiet one, with only Friday’s GDP data of note.



    The common currency also faced headwinds last week, failing to decisively break above parity, with demand for the dollar outweighing any bullish EUR factors once more, though these remain rather thin on the ground.

    This week is likely to be something of a similar story, with the calendar devoid of any major market-moving releases.



    While the Fed’s 4th 75bps hike in a row briefly boosted the dollar, the buck was unable to hold onto these gains, after markets began to believe the Fed’s hawkish stance may not last much longer, despite Friday’s solid labour market report.

    Nevertheless, Friday’s risk-on vibe posed stiff headwinds for the greenback, which now does have a relatively high bar for further appreciation, given how well-priced the Fed’s outlook is.

    This week, two main risk events present themselves; Tuesday’s midterm elections, followed by Thursday’s CPI release.
