Major Headlines

  • Brexit Minister Resigns over PM May’s Soft Brexit Plan
  • German Trade Surplus Supported by Rising Exports

USD: Broad based selling in the greenback continues amid the improvement in risk sentiment. Additionally, market participants continue to digest the latest lacklustre NFP report, while the recent upside surprises in UK and Euro-Area data has narrowed the divergence with the US. Consequently, this has supported the EUR and GBP vs. USD, which has pulled further away from the 94 handle.

GBP: On Friday, PM May’s “soft” Brexit plan had been agreed among cabinet ministers at the Chequers meeting, which led to a move higher in the Pound against its major counterparts with GBPUSD rising above 1.33. GBP gains survive for now, despite, resignations overnight from Brexit Minister David Davies and two additional government ministers’ which casts doubts on the plan and the ability for the UK to get a deal done by the October EU meeting.

EUR: Germany reported a wider than expected trade surplus on a seasonal adjusted basis, which had been predominantly led by rising exports. This is despite the current environment of trade disputes with the US. Alongside this, investor morale had enjoyed a modest bounce back, according to Sentix. The Euro continues to press for better levels, with the next upside target at 1.18 for a potential run in on 1.1850.

IG Client Sentiment: GBPUSD Chart of the Day

US AM Digest: GBP Gains Survive For Now, USD Drop Continues

GBPUSD: Retail trader data shows 69.0% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.22 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Apr 20 when GBPUSD traded near 1.40897; price has moved 5.7% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 6.1% lower than yesterday and 1.7% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 8.3% lower than yesterday and 10.0% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests GBPUSD prices may continue to fall. Positioning is more net-long than yesterday but less net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed GBPUSD trading bias.
