The U.S. dollar edged higher in early European trading Monday, absorbing suspected intervention by the Bank of Japan, while sterling pushed higher as former finance minister Rishi Sunak looked likely to become Britain’s prime minister. Elsewhere, GBP/USD rose to 1.1347, after former prime minister Boris Johnson pulled out of the running to replace the outgoing Liz Truss, with the Conservative Party due to announce its new leader, and thus PM, later Monday. Johnson’s decision means that former finance minister Rishi Sunak, seen as the most fiscally prudent option, is likely to win power. His appointment would likely reduce the political uncertainty hanging over the pound, for a little time at least.
