News Image GBP weak & under pressure in last 24 hours but eased slightly after UK data this morning.

All Sterling exchange rates have moved a little higher this morning, but for now has not really clawed back the loses we saw yesterday. This morning’s data was better-than-expected for the most part but just be reminded that April and Q2 conditions are going to be much worse considering that the UK only went into lock-down on 23rd of March. Not to mention that conditions at the start of Q1 also got a boost from post-election euphoria, which has long faded away and will not see a recurrence this quarter. That coupled with Brexit negotiations risks, will deter business investments even more alongside an uncertain recovery path in the coming months. In short, yes, the data was 'not as bad as expected' but it doesn't give much to be optimistic about when you factor in all the other circumstances at play
