MARKET DEVELOPMENT – GBP/USD Shoots Higher, AUD/USD Breaks Resistance

DailyFX 2019 FX Trading Forecasts

GBP: The Pound has shot higher, hitting its best levels in 6-weeks against the Euro and US Dollar. Sentiment in recent sessions has shown a slight easing of no-deal Brexit risks as parliament look to pass the Brexit delay bill. Consequently, given that speculators had priced in negative news for the Pound, a wave of short covering has propelled the currency higher. That said, GBPUSD had been given a further boost this morning on the back of better than expected monthly GDP data, in which output grew by 0.3%, subsequently, cooling concerns that the UK entered a technical recession in Q3.

EUR: Market participants somewhat tentative in the Euro, which is flat against the US Dollar, ahead of the main focus of the week in the form of the ECB meeting. Questions surrounding the ECB is a matter of how much stimulus they will provide, particularly with regard to restarting of QE, which over the past week has seen the more hawkish rate setters attempt to scale down expectations of a large QE purchase program.
