Pound Jumps as Government Abandons Plan to Cut Top Rate Tax
Pound Jumps as UK Government Abandons Plan to Cut Tax Rate For
0709 GMT - The pound jumps after news that the U.K. government
backtracked by dropping a pledge to cut the rate of income tax for
top earners, rising back to levels before the budget was announced.
ING says although this doesn't justify the pound trading much
higher than that, it does "alleviate the risk of cable [GBP/USD]
trading to parity in that it shows Downing Street will show greater
respect to financial markets when considering policy options."
GBP/USD could trade in a range between 1.1000-1.1350 and EUR/GBP
could trade below 0.8700, ING analyst Chris Turner says in a note.
GBP/USD trades at 1.1186, having hit a high of 1.1280. EUR/GBP
trades at 0.8757. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
