    Markets Week Ahead: GBP/USD

    Pacific region aimed mostly higher this past week as the world inched
    closer towards the first doses of a coronavirus vaccine. Still, the
    tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite outperformed the Dow Jones Industrial

      The haven-linked US Dollar largely underperformed, dipping to beyond

    British Pound wobbled on ongoing Brexit headlines. Gold prices climbed

    cuts starting in January by a smaller-than-anticipated amount.

    the week ahead. Rising Covid cases in the latter have been prompting
    local officials to tighten lockdowns in parts of the country. Might
    fading confidence derail risk appetite?
    After the recent strength of
    EUR/USD, a period of consolidation is likely ahead of two critical
    meetings: of the European Central Bank and the European Council.
