The GBP/USD cross looks set to close above $1.28 after the latest round of U.S. business activity and jobless claims failed to help the dollar this afternoon.

Both pieces of data have left investors feeling short changed, and has done little to increase confidence over the state of the U.S. economy.

Do you need to buy or sell dollars?

If you have a requirement to buy dollars in the coming weeks, then it could be worth taking advantage of the rise we have seen this week.

Following Theresa May’s announcement to hold a general election the pound has risen around three cents against the dollar, adding to the gains we have witnessed since the middle of March.

In the past month the GBP/USD cross has risen nearly six per cent, leaving the currency pair trading at its highest level since 3rd October.

With the official Brexit negotiations set to begin in a matter of weeks and the French elections kicking off on Sunday, we could easily see the pound give up some of the ground it has made over the past couple of days.
