USD/GBP Rate & Comments for 26th November 2010

US$/GBP – 1.5695

Sterling was undermined by comments from the Bank of England governor Mervyn King, who said “strong action” against inflation could destabilise the economy.  Sterling continues to follow trends from events in the Eurozone as it reversed gains against the Euro following comments by ECB member, Axel Aeber who indicated that Europe’s rescue fund of 750 billion Euro’s could be increased if necessary.
