Brexit Vote: PM May's Bill Defeated 432-202; GBP Sharply Off Lows

Brexit Vote: PM May's Bill Defeated 432-202; GBP Sharply Off Lows

Talking Points:

- UK PM Theresa May's EU-UK Brexit bill was handily rejected by UK parliament, losing 432-202.

- After hitting an intraday high of 1.2915 earlier, GBP/USD touched as low as 1.2669 following the vote results. Soon after, the pair was back at 1.2829.

- Retail traders have started to increase long British Pound positions.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May's bill was downed in a historic fashion today, losing 432-202, a 230-vote margn. This was the worst-ever defeat for a sitting government, eclipsing the 1924 defeat Ramsay Macdonald suffered by 166-votes. After sliding all day, the British Pound has started to reverse its losses as the dust settles.

No-Confidence Vote Coming Tomorrow

Now that the vote has failed in parliament, the opposition Labour party will bring forward a no-confidence vote on Wednesday, January 16. According to the PM's spokesman, the confidence debate will begin at 8 EST/13 GMT. But in the wake of the historic vote, the Northern Ireland DUP party – the Tory party’s coalition partner – has already said that it will back May's Tory government. It would appear that neither DUP nor Tories want another election.

That UK PM May is staying on and looks positioned to win a no-confidence vote brought forward by Labour suggests that a soft Brexit can still be achieved – and May's deal will have to be at the core of the solution. Assuming a no-confidence vote is overcome, May has pledged to reach across the aisle to find more common ground in order to wrangle the votes for her deal to pass. Ultimately, we should expect May back on a plane to Brussels in near-future for more concessions from the EU.

Brexit Vote: PM May's Bill Defeated 432-202; GBP Sharply Off Lows

Following the Brexit vote result, the British Pound initially touched fresh intraday lows at 1.2669 versus the US Dollar. But amid UK PM May saying that she would stand – and weather – a no-confidence vote, markets seem to be unwinding earlier bets (fears) that a ‘hard Brexit’ (no deal) scenario would result. As we head into the final hours of the trading day on Tuesday, bullish reversal hammer candlestick patterns were prevalent in GBP/CHF, GBP/JPY, and GBP/USD, while EUR/GBP was seeing a bearish reversal shooting star develop. At the time this report was written, GBP/USD was trading at 1.2829.
