Brexit Latest and US Labour Report (NFPs)

MPs will be voting on a selection of indicative bills early evening in a fresh attempt to get a Brexit consensus position after the previous vote saw all bills fail.

GBPUSD Price Pushing Higher Ahead of Fresh Brexit Votes.

Sterling has moved higher during the session against a range of currencies but further upside against the US dollar is currently blocked by the old support trend line which is now acting as resistance. A break above is possible if a softer Brexit is mooted, or if PM May’s bill passes, while traders should also be aware of several important US data releases during the week, culminating in the monthly NFP report on Friday.
