  • GBP>USD Potential to move above 1.30 – UOB





Cable posted a near five-month peak at 1.2902 on the back of dollar weakness. The pound’s laggard performance comes amid increasing signs that the EU and UK are only likely to strike a narrow trade deal, with the risk remaining that the UK might even leave the single market at year-end without a deal. The final round of EU-UK trade talks before the summer break will take place this week in London. Last week’s round in Brussels ended without a breakthrough, with both sides reporting that major differences remain on key issues, particularly level playing field rules and fisheries. The UK calendar this week is relatively quiet, highlighted by latest CBI distributive sales report (Tuesday), June lending and money support figures from the BoE (Wednesday), and the July GFK consumer sentiment survey (Friday).


The DXY fell to two-year lows of 93.48 in N.Y. on Monday, down from 94.40 highs seen in Asian hours. Incoming data has the June durables report, where orders rose a better than consensus 7.3%. As has been the case of late, there was little if any market reaction. Wall Street made headway, led by the NASDAQ as the agreement between the White House and GOP lawmakers temper the uncertainty over the ability to deliver another spending bill. The rising number of new virus infections and U.S.-China trade frictions remain a damper on risk appetite, but the now solid chance for another shot of fiscal stimulus before month-end lifted sentiment, at least for now. EUR-USD headed from near 1.1680 into the open, to 1.1782 highs. USD-JPY peaked at 105.49 early, later hitting lows of 105.12. USD-CAD hit a 1.3404 high, later bottoming under 1.3355. Cable made trend highs of 1.2902, climbing from early lows of 1.2842
