The US dollar expects strong durable goods orders data today
The cable was able to continue strengthening after Obama's comments, which indicated the need for the UK to remain in the EU. The pair GBP/USD could reach 1.4518 high yesterday.
The US President said that if the British vote for the exit from the EU, the negotiations on the trade agreement with the United States and the United Kingdom can take up to 10 years.
Today, the UK calendar is empty. The US is to publish data on durable goods orders, which are expected to grow by 0.5% against the previous decline by -1.3%.
The main reason which stops the investors to resume buying dollars is the prerequisite of the central banks to make the negative interest rates. Perhaps this is due to the desire of the authorities to increase buying activity.
