GBPUSD Price, News and Brexit Latest

  • GBPUSD breaks below trend and now eyes 1.3000 as the next level of support.
  • PM May’s withdrawal bill back in the House, or at least part of it.

GBPUSD and Latest Brexit Vote:

The UK voted to leave the EU nearly three years ago and today was originally signed-off as the Brexit day. Since then the complete inability to get any sort of consensus deal agreed within the House of Commons that the EU would sign off has forced the UK’s departure day back by at least another two weeks, and maybe much longer.

UK PM May will present part of her withdrawal agreement to the House this afternoon - ex-political declaration - in yet another effort to force a consensus in Parliament. Her withdrawal bill has been defeated heavily twice before and this attempt to pass her partial bill this time is also likely to be defeated. PM May has put the bill to vote, hoping that if it passes that the EU will postpone Brexit until May 22. If the bill is defeated, the UK will have until April 12 to find a consensus and indicate if it will put forward candidates for the European Elections. The EU will decide if the UK leaves the single-block without a deal or if a longer-delay to Brexit is warranted.

GBPUSD has sold-off in the last 2 days and, importantly, broke and closed below the trend support from the start of the year. This trend will now turn to resistance, leaving the pair looking for further support. Currently 1.3000 is holding but if this level is broken conclusively, the March 11 low at 1.2960 and the 200-day moving average around 1.2945 come into play. GBPUSD traders should also be aware of this afternoon’s US data releases, especially the Fed’s favorite inflation indicator, core PCE, released at 12:30 GMT.
