GBP/USD Price Retreats Despite Hot Inflation Read

 

Wednesday, June 21, 2023

GBP/USD, Chart and Analysis

• Higher than expected UK CPI numbers may lead BoE to tighter interest rates
• GBP/USD Price could fall further, key technical levels to consider

The UK CPI numbers of May released earlier today at 8.7% came in higher than expected of 8.4% and the core CPI (excluding food and energy) has followed suit and come in higher than expected rising from 6.8% in April to 7.1% in May and printing its highest levels since 1992. The hot inflation read of May has come on the back of higher costs in healthcare, and communications.

Investors expect that the Bank of England to continue combating high inflation levels and hike interest rates by 25 bp this week, taking the main rate from 4.5% to 4.75. Additionally, markets expect further rate hikes in the coming months (around 100 bp until next year). It should be noted that the cost of two-year loans has risen significantly in the UK reaching 6% levels, and this could affect the demand for mortgages, increasing the odds for a lower growth rate and a higher probability of a recession in the UK.
