GBP/USD Forecast 30 May 2016
5/5 of 3 ratings

Friday’s strong data helped the US dollar strengthen against the cable.

The US GDP for the 1st quarter showed the expected 0.8% in the 2nd assessment versus 0.5% in the 1st assessment. The real consumer spending gained 1.9% for the 1st quarter.

In her speech, Janet Yellen confirmed the possibility of an earlier rate hike, unless, of course, other factors will not disappoint. As we remember, the other members of the FOMC also stated about it last week.

Today, the US and the UK have the day off.
