In the economy, the eurozone manufacturing PMI preliminary value of 48.5% in September, services PMI preliminary value of 48.9%, comprehensive PMI preliminary value of 48.2%, are significantly lower than the 50% critical level, the eurozone economy showed signs of recession.

GBP Intraday Trend Analysis   

Fundamental Analysis:

GBP plunged as much as 5% against the dollar when trading resumed in Asia on Monday, 26th September 2022, hitting $1.0327, the weakest on record, before recovering most of the day’s losses in European trading. 

As investors are concerned that Britain’s new economic plan will damage the country’s fiscal position, and the Bank of England said it is watching financial marktes “very closely” after the sharp fluctuations in asset prices.  

The market’s reaction suggests that investors have lost confidence in the government’s approach, causing a degree of volatility that has reduced the pound to the same position as some emerging market currencies. 

Now it seems likely that the Bank of England will be forced to raise interest rates sharply at its upcoming November meeting. Let’s see if we can then stem the weak pattern of a sharp drop in the pound.
