The Dollar has had a relatively strong start to December against the Pound, having gained 2.2% since the start of the month. Even Friday, when Sterling gained against the majority of its currency counterparts on the back of PM May's Brexit breakthrough, the Pound's inroads against the Dollar were pushed back as impressive Job market data more or less set in stone the strong and stable status of the US economy of late. Of course, the markets are waiting for the widely expected interest rate hike due on Wednesday. I'm sure much of the gains have already been factored in for the USD as the Federal Reserve's 3rd rate hike this year has been talked up for a long time now. There is scope for a reversal in the trend should the Fed talk down the possibility of future interest rate hikes during 2018.
If you are looking to buy Sterling with Dollars, it may pay to capitalise on these levels whilst the going is good.
The Republicans have been targeted with pushing through Trump's tax reform before Christmas. It is expected to provide a stimulus of nearly 1.5 Trillion dollars to the US economy equating to growth of 0.3% by this time next year according to leading researches of Oxford Economics.
Wall Street has certainly benefitted by the push and I expect it to provide some support to the Dollar in the long run too. Some investment groups are expecting another 4 interest rate hikes throughout 2018 which would certainly leave the Dollar in a dominant position on the international stage. As a result, those holding out for the Pound reaching the 1,40 against greenback may be left disappointed. It looks very unlikely the Bank of England will be able to keep up.
