Key Quotes

"The pound will continue to be supported for now by the strength of the economic recovery. But this is just a short-term recovery from weak levels."

"Over-easy monetary policy, a bias towards 'macro-prudential' solutions to the imbalances caused by easy monetary policy and a lack of long-term vision from policy-makers to tackle the imbalances in the economy - both sector and regional - have produced a low savings rate, a low investment rate, a large current account deficit and economic inequality."

"Maybe all of those were simply necessary side-effects of the policies put in place to get the economy back onto an even keel after 2008, but they are not helpful now. I suspect GBP/USD is going to see 1.40 long before it gets back to 1.70."
