FX MARKET REPORT 12.01.2021

The GBP/USD pair refreshed daily tops, around the 1.3565-70 region. Bank  of England (BOE) Governor Andrew Bailey said that it appears less  severe than that in spring last year.

There are  good reasons to think we’re in a world of low rates for a long period of  time. EUR/USD trades flat in the mid-1.2100 on turnaround Tuesday. The  U.S. dollar held onto its recent gains on Tuesday after a spike in U.S.  Treasury yields lifted demand for the currency.
