British Pound
Ticker: GBP=

British Pound News

The U.S. Dollar Index remains in the range between the support at 90.50 and the resistance at 91. If the U.S. Dollar Index manages to settle below the support level at 90.50, it will gain downside momentum and head towards the 90 level which will be bullish for GBP/USD.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen agreed to extend Brexit talks for a few more days. This decision provided significant support to the pound which has recently traded below 1.3150 and then managed to get back above 1.3300.

While traders are optimistic, it remains to be seen whether UK and EU will be able to reach a compromise deal as negotiations have failed to deliver any tangible progress for months.

If Britain leaves the EU without a deal, the British pound will find itself under material pressure, and EUR/USD may also move lower.

There are no important economic reports scheduled to be released today in the U.S. and UK so foreign exchange market traders will mostly focus on Brexit updates.
