The European currency lost around 0.3% from one month high to hover around 1.0745, having hit a five-week high of 1.0786 overnight. Moreover, the euro is set for a 2.2% gain in May, which would be its biggest monthly rise in a year.

Market participants worry about the efficiency of BOE’s plan to face inflation increases, while numbers show that whatever BOE is doing is not enough. The BOE has faced political attacks over its response to inflation, which is at its fastest rate in four decades. Despite four interest-rate increases since December and money markets bracing for more in each of its next five decisions, the pound is the third-worst performing major currency this year.


The sterling pound fell from the resistance level of 1.2650 to touch the lower band of the Bollinger bands and trade below the 55 SMA on the hourly chart. However, the cable retains its uptrend on the daily chart and remains near the daily resistance of 1.2610.
