Brexit News: Sterling (GBP) Soars after EU Dangles Brexit Carrot

Brexit News: Sterling (GBP) Soars after EU Dangles Brexit Carrot

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Sterling (GBP) and Brexit News:

  • European Court of Justice releases Article 50 opinion.
  • Sterling jumps and holds gains.

The DailyFX Q4GBP Forecast is available to download.

Article 50 May be Reversed Unilaterally by the UK, Top European Court Opines

The UK can decide to rejoin the EU unilaterally according to advice from the European Court of Justice (ECJ), dangling a Remain-route carrot back in front of UK PM Theresa May. While the advice is not an official ruling, it is clear advice and would likely be passed if the situation arose. This means that if a second referendum was called and Remain won the vote, the UK could go back into the EU, although as it stands, it remains to be clarified if the original terms and conditions would stay the same.

This ECJ opinion comes at a time when the Speaker of the House ruled that MPs will be allowed to debate whether the government should be held in contempt of Parliament by not fully disclosing the full legal guidance of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

Brexit Latest: Sterling Weakens as MPs Demand Full Legal Brexit Disclosure.

Sterling jumped on the news - and kept hold of its gains – as investor’s fears about a no-deal Brexit begin to wane. GBPUSD traded up at 1.2830, and is now eyeing the 1.2920 – 1.2935 area, a level last seen 10-days ago. On the 15-minute chart GBPUSD looks overbought on the RSI indicator and may drift lower before consolidating.
