The market is beginning to place itself for Boris Johnson to announce an extension of commerce talks with the EU later immediately, and extra so now following Dominic Raab’s feedback that “there’s a probability” for a Brexit deal and that they’re “shut” to 1.
That could be a kind of giveaway to what Johnson will spell out later immediately however then once more, you may’t actually rule out the potential for a shock. In that lieu, the dangers are kind of skewed to the draw back as to what Johnson may announce when the time comes.
GBP/USD has made its manner again above 1.2900 and above the 23.6 retracement stage of the swing transfer decrease yesterday. Additional minor resistance is seen nearer to 1.2950 subsequent however the 200-hour MA (blue line) @ 1.2965 will supply extra of a problem for patrons.
Simply above that’s the 100-hour MA (pink line) @ 1.2984 and people key near-term ranges will likely be ones to look at in case we see any upside transfer earlier than attending to 1.3000.
Boris Johnson extending talks could supply a glimmer of hope nevertheless it comes at a time when talks are just about sitting on a knife’s edge. We’re no nearer to a deal than we had been at the beginning of the yr and with Brexit, nothing is agreed till all the things is agreed.
I might argue if the pound is to rally on Johnson’s bullishness as he extends the “deadline” – no matter that truly means in Brexit world – that any positive aspects could also be short-lived.
For now, because the pound is creeping increased, simply be aware in case the market tries to front-run the information additional and switch this right into a ‘purchase the hearsay, promote the very fact’ occasion.
