UBS Ends Trade Recommendation to Sell U.K. Pound Versus Dollar

UBS AG ended a trade recommendation to sell the pound against the dollar after the U.K. currency rose, surpassing the bank’s upper limit to protect against greater losses.

“We exit our short pound-dollar trade,” Gareth Berry, a strategist at the Swiss bank in Singapore, wrote today in an investor note. “The rationale for being short sterling is still intact,” he said.

The pound rose 0.7 percent to $1.5281 as of 11:48 a.m. in London.
