  • GBP/USD challenges 1.30 resistance level again.

GBP/USD challenges 1.30 as post-Brexit US-UK trade deal tops agenda

US President Donald Trump is in the UK for the 70th anniversary of the NATO defense organization, focusing attention on possible US access to the UK’s National Health Service post-Brexit.

Ahead of the UK General Election on December 12, Jeremy Corbyn, who leads the main Opposition Labour Party, has written to Trump saying there would be no deal with the US under a Labour government if the US insisted the NHS were included in post-Brexit trade talks. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the NHS is off the table.

Trump’s visit comes as Johnson attempts to make Brexit the key election issue, while Corbyn is focusing on social issues including health. It also coincides with a narrowing gap between Johnson’s Conservatives and Corbyn’s Labour in the latest election opinion polls, with ICM Research showing the Conservative lead down to 7%.

However, that has had little impact on Sterling, with GBP/USD climbing since the middle of last week to again challenge strong resistance at 1.30.
