GBPUSD Price May Yet Drop More as UK Inflation Data, Brexit Sour Mood

GBPUSD Price May Yet Drop More as UK Inflation Data, Brexit Sour Mood

GBP price, news and analysis:

  • The GBPUSD price outlook remains poor as brief Brexit optimism Tuesday dissipates and the race to replace Theresa May as UK Prime Minister waits for the starting flag to be waved.
  • Meanwhile, news of weaker-than-expected UK inflation data is adding to Sterling’s woes.

GBPUSD weakness may persist

GBPUSD continues to trade within the downward channel on the charts that has been in place for most of this month so far and could fall to 1.26 as the Brexit process continues to go nowhere. After an offer Tuesday by UK Prime Minister Theresa May of a Parliamentary vote on a second Brexit referendum, that gave Sterling a brief boost, failed to gain support, GBP dropped back again and continues to look weak.

As the runners and riders jostle for position at the starting line, waiting for the official starting flag to be waved in the race to replace May as Prime Minister, uncertainty is bound to persist – and so far GBPUSD has shown little sign of responding favorably to her likely fall.

DailyFX poll: Corbyn could be best successor to PM May for GBP

In the meantime, UK inflation data for April showed a smaller-than expected increase to 2.1% year/year from March’s 1.9%. That compares with the consensus forecast of 2.2%, although it was still the highest this year, pushed up by a rise in energy bills.
