Today, Friday, November 25, the dollar fell by more than 0.17%, after declining 1.02% yesterday.

British Pound (GBPUSD)

GBPUSD is mostly supported by the decline in the US dollar. We are witnessing buying momentum on the GBP lately. As a result, the pair rose above 1.21 for the first time since the first half of August 2022.

Sterling received a buying momentum after comments from Bank of England Deputy Governor Ramsden. He said he is in favor to further restriction. While he said that a cut in the bank interest rate could be considered if the economy develops in a different way than expected and inflation ceases to be a concern.

Technically, today we notice a correction near the pivot point areas at 1.2095, and we monitor the weekly closing for more clarity in the general direction.

Pivot point: 1.2095
