UK Week Ahead Dominated by Brexit, US Data and Fed Speak

UK Week Ahead Dominated by Brexit, US Data and Fed Speak

UK Week Ahead:

  • A busy week of heavyweight data releases and central bank speak across the globe.
  • Brexit news will remain the driver until the House votes in mid-December.

We have just released our Brand New Q4 Trading Forecasts including USD and GBP.

A look at the high importance data releases and central bank speeches highlights the importance of this week to traders of nearly all asset classes. Add in the G20 meeting - starting at the end of week – and the calendar needs to be closely monitored this week. Brexit will continue to grab the headlines after the EU and the UK signed off the draft text and withdrawal agreement, and UK PM Theresa May will be trying her best to convince voters and MPs that her version of Brexit is the only one available. Current thinking is that the bill will not pass through a House of Commons vote, leaving the process no further on since June 2016.

GBPUSD is expected to remain rangebound ahead of the Brexit deal vote in the House of Commons although this week’s US data releases and two separate speeches from Fed Chair Jerome Powell may prompt some price action.

The FTSE 100 has partially de-coupled from GBPUSD moves in recent weeks with investors now looking at the effect Brexit will have on the UK economy, not just at foreign exchange gains/losses for top UK exporters. Short-term support remains between 6.850 and 6,900 for now.
