Cable dropped to $1.3043, bounced to $1.3051, currently around $1.3048. Sterling currently enjoying underlying buoyant tone, traders have noted sterling demand into the last three 1600BST fixes, Monday demand taking cable to an extended recovery high of $1.3083 in post fix trade before it settled around $1.3065 through the balance of Monday trade and into early Asia. Risk took a general knock in Asia on reported problems with the J&J COVID-19 vaccine trials though only took cable down to the mentioned low.
