GBP/USD. February 17, 2021 Sterling started to decline from highs

On Wednesday, the GBP/USD pair declines moderately from 1.3950. The current quote for the asset is 1.3890.

The driver of the pound's decline was the strengthening of the US dollar in the market, which received support from a sharp rise in the yield of US debt bonds. However, the British currency does not intend to give up primacy so easily: the sterling receives strong support from the high rates of vaccination in the UK. Experts note that the rate of vaccination of the country's population is much higher than the world average.

Today you should pay attention to the publication of inflation data in Britain. The consumer price index in monthly terms decreased by 0.2%, which turned out to be better than the forecast of decline by 0.4%. Annual inflation in January accelerated to 0.7% from 0.6% in December. Also of interest are data on the price index of British producers: the indicator rose by 0.7%, while analysts predicted growth of 0.5%.

In the US, statistics on producer prices will be published in the same way, as well as on the volume of retail sales. In the evening hours, it is worth paying attention to the data on the volume of industrial production and the publication of the FOMC minutes.
