On 26th June US GDP for Q1 will be announced, revealing the final revisions of previous releases and a final accurate reflection of economic growth data for this period.

Vantage FX, Head of Market Analysis Jay Mawji commented:

“US data inevitably leads to a conversation on when the FED will pull back on stimulus. Could it be the end of the year; could it be sooner? With the Jobs market and other economic indicators moving, a positive US GDP figure is likely to seal the deal to slow down stimulus. However, a positive US GDP figure isn't as certain as it seems… The FED probably know that already!”

After the strength USD showed last year, this year it appears to have lost the infallible sheen it once had. It is expected that these figures will confirm a widely expected downward adjustment which may result in the USD having to give back more ground.

If there is a downward adjustment, it will be negative for the US Dollar (USD) and unfortunately also for the Sterling (GBP), which is more fragile having just recovered from recession.
