The Gilts 10-year bond yields increase proves the best their hard work. The oil prices increase have a positive impact on the February and March CPI index. In the light of this, the regulator should not launch the monetary easing. The ISM service sector positive releases cheered bulls to short and now the US dollar looks as a favorite one.

The UK and Germany 10-year bond yields reached 150 basis points, indicating the downward trend continuation within the pair EUR/GBP. Apparently, this factor will deter the British pound from the strong prices decline.
