GBP

The pound sterling (GBP) or pound sterling is the official currency of Great Britain, Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Gibraltar, South Georgia and other Pacific territories. The British pound is currently the fourth most traded currency in the world after the US dollar, the euro and the Japanese yen. As the oldest currency in continuous use, the GBP has significant weight in the global market and is also the fourth largest reserve currency. The Bank of England (BoE) is the authoritative central bank responsible for regulating the GBP, issuing its own banknotes, and regulating the issuance of banknotes by private banks in Scotland and Northern Ireland. What factors affect the GBP? As with any widely traded currency, the GBP is influenced by several factors. As usual, monetary policy has a very important influence. Any BoE announcement or policy decision is always closely watched given the potential to move the GBP. In addition, UK consumer prices (CPI) as well as the inflation rate carry a large weight and constantly influence the value of the GBP in the currency markets. Other indicators of concern include UK gross domestic product (GDP) or growth, consumer sentiment or confidence. The recent drama surrounding Brexit, as well as the potential fallout from the negotiations, has added another layer of uncertainty to the GBP. At the time of writing, Britain is heading for a historic rift with Europe, although no agreement has yet been reached, with the two sides unable to agree. With a flat resolution nowhere in sight, any development or eventual outcome of Brexit will be critical to the GBP’s short- and long-term value.
