Brexit Outlook and Sterling (GBP/USD) Price, Analysis and Chart:

  • A deal is looking increasingly unlikely
  • Sterling down across the board

The latest round of negative EU/UK trade talks rumors has pushed Sterling lower and back to around 1.3250 against the US dollar. According to a Bloomberg report, sources with knowledge of last night’s discussions say that it may be impossible to reconcile the two sides’ differences and that a no-deal Brexit is the likely outcome. This is only one of many reports and as always caution should be used when looking at sources reports.
