EUR/GBP plummets to mid-0.8800s, Cheapest since May 2020

A sudden pickup in the British pound dragged the EUR/GBP cross to eight-month lows, around mid-0.8800s during the first half of this European trading session.

Having failed to capitalize on the tried recovery this week, the cross witnessed aggressive advertising on Wednesday and now seems set to resume its recent well-established bearish tendency. The sterling remained untouched by the imposition of travel restrictions in the united kingdom, rather got a lift after the release of hotter-than-expected UK consumer inflation figures.

According to the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS), UK headline CPI rose 0.6percent YoY and 0.3% MoM in December. The readings well above the previous month's figures and surpassed consensus estimates. Adding to this, the core inflation (excluding food and energy items) came at +1.4% YoY during the reported month as against +1.1% reserved in November and marketplace expectations of +1.3%.

On the flip side, the shared money fought to benefit from a weaker tone enclosing the US buck as investors seemed loath ahead of the ECB fiscal policy meeting on Thursday. Bulls also refrained from putting fresh bets amid a delay in the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Europe and the possibility for an expansion of lockdown measures in Germany before February 15.

Meanwhile, the final version of the Eurozone CPI matched initial estimates, with the headline amount coming in at -0.3% and the heart gauge at +0.2percent YoY speed for December. The information did little to transfer the euro or offer some meaningful impetus to the EUR/GBP cross. This, then, leaves traders in the winner of the GBP price dynamics ahead of the major ECB event danger on Thursday.
