The EUR/GBP collapses as Cameron said that ‘beyond doubt Syrian government used chemical weapons’. In addition to ‘spicy’ comments from England’s Prime Minister, the sterling found solid ground today against the single currency, as German employment data let down traders all around the globe. Meanwhile, the Bundesbank cut the annual growth forecast for 2013 in June to 0.3%, despite predicting a gradual recovery for the rest of the year. What’s more, sterling’s outperformance was also helped a bit by reports that Vodafone is in talks with Verizon to sell its 45% stake. . Last but not least, solid UK figures still prevail across the board; UK Lloyds Business Barometer released at 54 versus 41, which was the prior one.
