GBPUSD Choppy, Theresa May Resigns, What Next? - US Market Open

MARKET DEVELOPMENT – GBPUSD Choppy, Theresa May Resigns, What Next?

DailyFX Q2 2019 FX Trading Forecasts

GBP: The Pound has traded in choppy fashion after Theresa May announced her resignation. In an immediate reaction to the news GBPUSD had saw a modest lift higher towards Wednesday high at 1.2720, before quickly retracing, while EURGBP tested the 0.88 handle. (Full story)

What Next?

  • Theresa May will step down on June 7th, however, will remain in office until a new leader is found.
  • The Tory Leadership contest will begin on June 10th and as is expected to be finalised by the end of July.
  • Next PM Odds: Boris Johnson (11/8), Dominic Raab (4/1), Michael Gove (10/1), Andrea Leadsom (14/1), Jeremy Hunt (14/1)

Whoever the next Prime Minister is, the divided opinion in the political landscape remains the same and while it is difficult to predict the near term outcome in UK politics, there is an increased risk of a general election by the autumn, potentially leading to another extension to A50 (currently set to expire by October 31st). At the time, the risk of a no deal has been increased once again.

GBP Bears Beware: Boris as UK Prime Minister Might be Good for Sterling

Oil: Following yesterday’s plunge in the energy complex, oil prices are set for its largest weekly loss in 2019 as concerns over a global slowdown raises fears over reduced demand. However, given the overextended drop in yesterday’s price action, Brent and WTI crude futures have recouped some losses. Alongside this, the backwardation (typically a bullish signal) in the oil curve has steepened, which in turn places the focus on potential supply outages stemming from rising geopolitical tensions.
