  • Meanwhile, the Brexit Bill passed through the UK Parliament Wednesday and just awaits Royal assent before becoming law.
  • All the amendments passed by the House of Lords were rejected by the Commons, paving the way for the UK to leave the EU in eight days’ time.

GBP/USD Outlook Positive

The breakout from the triangle pattern shown on the chart above came as the probability of a quarter-point interest rate cut to 0.5% by the Bank of England on January 30 fell to just over 55% in the wake of data from the Confederation of British Industry showing a sharp increase in business confidence so far this month.
