The dollar was on track for its best week against the yen in three months on Friday, after Fed Chair Jerome Powell and other Fed officials struck more hawkish tone than they did at the latest meeting.

GDP growth

Sterling barely moved at around a one-week low after data showed the UK economy stagnated in the third quarter. Economists expected a contraction of 0.1% which could mark the start of recession.

GBPUSD

Markets are currently pricing in around 40 bps of BOE rate cuts by September, less than for the Fed or the ECB, as the kingdom’s inflation remains higher than other major economies.
