The British pound reaches five week high as fears over Trump’s protectionist rhetoric significantly weakens the US dollar.

The greenback is in retreat against most major currencies, sending the British pound up 0.75 of a cent to $1.245. That’s its highest level since last December.

The euro is also gaining ground, up 0.35% at $1.074 this morning.
