UK Asset Markets Under Pressure, Sterling Buckles

GBPUSD is back below 1.3000 and currently trades at an eleven-month low after UK international trade secretary Liam Fox said that there was now a 60-40 chance of a no-deal Brexit. The remark, made over the weekend fed into the pair at the off on Monday morning, while cable weakened further as the US dollar strengthened during the session. The UK data calendar is bare with only provisional Q2 GDP on Friday, leaving Sterling currently at the mercy of bearish speculators.

The FTSE broke its negative correlation with GBPUSD – with both asset classes registering losses – although support is close by on the chart. And EURGBP continues to trend gently higher but will remain rangebound until a deal/no-deal Brexit is announced.
