Quotes

Daragh Maher, a currency strategist at HSBC says, "when we look back to where sterling was trading against the dollar before politics became a worry, it was trading around $1.6620 or so. so one could argue that is where we should head back to. we don't think it should go that far as we have also seen a generalized dollar rally over the last couple of weeks so we suspect that 1.6500 is an appropriate level."
"the difficulty for sterling is that we went a year where we got consistent upside surprises on numbers, and now we seem to be getting a reasonably consistent run of downside surprises" said Daragh Maher, a currency strategist at HSBC in London
