GBP Intraday Trend Analysis   

Fundamental Analysis:

The UK government is expected to provide more financial support to UK households by the end of the current financial year (until April 2023).

The package introduced last week set a precedent for government support to vulnerable families.

Following the current continued strain on household incomes, a further scheme of between £5 billion and £10 billion is likely to be introduced.

If the risk of continued inflation abates, the UK government is expected to cut VAT in the fourth quarter, as well as implementing permanent tax cuts from April 2023 to stimulate the economy.
