Sterling slips in Brexit countdown

SINGAPORE (Reuters) Telegram Forex Signals  – Sterling was set to snap five weeks of gains with a slump on Friday, as leaders on both sides of Brexit trade talks sounded doubtful about finding a resolution, while the Australian dollar soared along with iron ore prices to hit a 2-1/2 year high.

The euro rose to $1.2158 even after the European Central Bank expanded its bond buying scheme, given the move was widely expected. The central bank also lifted growth forecasts but lowered inflation projections for 2022.

Against a basket of currencies the dollar drifted lower to 90.662, which is barely a third of one percent above last week’s 31-month trough.

Moves in morning trade were modest, but enough to push the Australian and New Zealand dollars to new multi-year highs and keep the euro within range of last week’s two-and-a-half year high of $1.2177.

The yen rose 0.3% to 103.04 per dollar and the New Zealand dollar rose 0.1% to $0.7104.

The Australian dollar has broken past 75 U.S. cents for the first time since mid-2018 overnight as prices surged for Australia’s biggest export commodity, iron ore. [AUD/][IRONORE/]

It last traded at $0.7547 and is set for a sixth consecutive weekly rise. Over that time, it has gained five cents, or 7% against the dollar. Dollar Slips to New Lows

The Australian dollar also hit a one-and-a-half year high of 78.58 yen and a six-month peak of A$1.6083 per euro overnight and even leapt against the yuan despite worsening trade tensions between China and Australia.

“With the iron ore price on a bull run, the Aussie is largely ignoring ‘bad’ news,” said Commonwealth Bank of Australia (OTC:CMWAY) currency analyst Joe Capurso. Coronavirus Vaccine Pfizer
