Euro Holds Support, GBP Rises, USD Eyes Midterm Elections - US Market Open

Justin McQueen, Analyst

MARKET DEVELOPMENT – GBP JUMPS TO TWO WEEK HIGH AS HOPES RISE ON DEAL

GBP: The Pound edged towards a two-week high, eying a break above the 1.31 handle on rising hopes that a Brexit deal breakthrough could be reached. Much of the optimism over a potential Brexit deal emanated from Brexit Minister Raab, who provided a “thumbs up” after leaving a cabinet meeting. Alongside this, there are reports that a second cabinet could be scheduled over the next few days. Topside resistance is the 1.31 handle which continues to curb price action for now.

USD: The US Dollar has softened for the majority of the session with market participants focussed on the midterm elections. Expectations are for a split congress with the Republicans keeping the Senate, while the House flips to Democrats potentially leading to a political gridlock. (Full preview)

EUR: The Euro is holding above the 1.14 handle with intial support stemming from Dollar weakness, alongside firm Markit PMI reports with the Eurozone wide PMI beating analyst estimates. Consequently, shrugging off the weak Italian PMI which moved into contractionary territory. However, with the EC currently looking at measures to enact sanctions on Italy unless they alter their budget, politics look set to dictact price action.
