Pound Sterling Price News and Forecast: GBP/USD – Boris' Brexit blink set to outweigh Manchester's mutiny [Video]


GBP/USD: UK/EU Brexit trade deal negotiations are clear weighing on sentiment [Video]

As a three week rally on Cable has moved into reverse, the pressure has turned back towards a test of 1.2845 support. It is notable that intraday volatility on Cable has picked up this week, with larger daily ranges. The Average True Range of 117 pips has been exceeded in each of the past three sessions now (UK/EU Brexit trade deal negotiations are clear weighing on sentiment).

Near term rallies into 1.3000/1.3080 continue to struggle. It is also worth noting now the support of a five month uptrend (which links the lows going back to May), which comes in today at 1.2780.

In the meantime, it is unlikely that bulls could prevail in the market, and the exchange rate could exceed the resistance level formed by the monthly PP located at the 1.3028 mark. Read More...
