Sterling has continued on its merry way.
With the UK a lot further along in it’s vaccine roll-out, investors are pushing the Pound higher.
Against the US Dollar, the Pound has surged to a 34-month high – it’s been over 1,000 days since the GBP/USD rate was last at these levels.
In fact, the Pound has gained over 20% against the Dollar since its COVID lows last year.
Against the Euro, the Pound has climbed to 10-month highs.
That’s a gain of over 8% since March last year.
These are big moves for currency markets.
But you just don’t know how long the gains will last.
No doubt, other countries will begin to catch-up with their vaccine roll-outs, which would diminish Sterling’s outperformance.
And let’s not forget, the UK economy is still being propped up by enormous government support.
Right now, buyers of Dollars and Euros are in a great position.
For buyers of Sterling, it may be prudent to protect your budget from further losses.
