FXStreet (Delhi) – Research Team at Investec, suggests that the Pound has been trending lower against the US Dollar since the middle of last year, fuelled by the Fed's move to raise interest rates and the BoE's reluctance to follow.

UK PM Cameron's recent talk in parliament laying out his EU referendum intentions (leading many to believe that Brexit event risk is likely to take place this year) has left the Pound teetering over the abyss. Yesterday the Pound traded fresh 5 year lows under 1.4565 against the greenback, reportedly triggered by a new opinion poll showing a growing desire among Britons to leave the EU. This also saw the Pound drop under 1.3500 against the Euro. In both cases, very few levels remain before larger downside risks open up.” For more information, read our latest forex news.
