    Scotia Bank forecast

    Beyond the stagflation risk, the GBP will not react well to renewed equity market weakness as central banks persist with interest rate increases
    the domestic political backdrop remains unhelpful (a new PM, Brexit issues unresolved and independence movements at home stirring again)
    broad, trade-weighted index (TWI) measure of the pound could fall another 4-5% broadly or so before reaching the lows seen around the 1992 Exchange Rate Mechanism debacle, the 2008 financial crisis, the 2016 Brexit vote and the 2020 pandemic
    The fact that broad TWI losses stalled around 73.5 on each of those very different calamities for the pound suggests it is a point worth keeping a close eye on moving forward.
    A return to that point in this cycle might imply — roughly — downside risks for GBP/USD to the 1.10 zone and upside risks for EUR/GBP to the 0.90 area in the next few months


    USD/JPY continued its rise through the session, hitting a high 20 year high above 139.68 as the yield on 2-year US Treasuries rose to its highest since 2007, providing a nice tailwind to the USD Yield circa 3.5%.


    After having a breather in July the #USD surged in August getting a lift from Yields, forwards and safe haven flows.
    #GBPUSD worst performer with stagflation and ouster of Boris Johnson
    #USDJPY hit a 20 yr high as the JGB/TNX spread widened
