The U.S Dollar has risen consecutively for the last 4 days on the suggestion The Fed Reserve may start to gradually ease it’s Quantitive easing programme earlier than expected due to the economy starting to recover.

GBP/USD is expected to challenge the 1.37 area for a third time in the short term, helped mainly by the vaccination programme in The UK. Covid-19 cases have been dropped from the peak which provides hope that deaths will in turn gradually decline as well.

With The UK currently having vaccinated 4.52% of the population, the most within the western world, it brings optimism for The UK to become the first country & economy to re-open up and get on the path to recovery.
