    Data and Carney Pushed the Pound-US Dollar Lower Last Week

    The British pound (FXB) depreciated 1.7% against the US Dollar (UUP) for the week ending April 20. The pound (GBB) closed the week ending April 20 at 1.40—compared to a close of 1.42 for the week ending April 13. Softer-than-expected retail sales, wage growth, and consumer prices dented investors’ confidence. Bank of England Governor Mark Carney gave a hint that the interest rates don’t need to be increased in May. Carney’s comments, weak data, and the strong US dollar led to the pound’s sharp depreciation the previous week.

    What Prompted the British Pound’s Fall

    The British pound (FXB) depreciated by 2.0% against the US dollar (UUP) in the week ended February 9.
