Sterling rises ahead of UK growth figures later this morning, will the Pound continue to climb? (Joseph Wright)

AUD GBP Higher after Inflation Data, Sunak Budget Ahead

Despite some gloomy data out of the UK recently along with a Prime Minister coming under increasing pressure, the Pound has climbed gradually throughout the week.

There have been thin volumes as well as small trading ranges in what’s an uneventful marketplace by usual standards.

The main event this week has been the Queen’s Speech which was passed by a small majority of 14. May will be relieved to have passed this test even if only just after the snap election election she called this year failed to produce the intended outcome.

There could be further movement for the Pound to Aussie Dollar rate this morning as at 9.30am there will be UK GDP figures released which will measure the total value of all goods and services produced in the economy. This measure of economic output is likely to be followed closely as economic data is now playing a larger role in Sterling sentiment after politics has dominated since the Brexit.

The expectation is for a figure of 2% annually so expect to see any deviations from this figure to impact GBP exchange rates.
