The GBPUSD has been in a 13 % price decline for 10 months. Market analysis on the weekly and daily charts, on the other hand, maintain bullish sentiments amid negative news from the U.S. Read on as we delve into these macro and technical indicators driving the price of the British pound.
Brexit, UK Parliament votes
PM May’s Brexit plan will be put to Parliament approval, as they vote on whether it should stand or made invalid. In the event of Parliament rejection, we should expect exponential growth of a hard Brexit.
United States Government Shutdown
President of the United States, Donald Trump demands to fund for the border wall, which has consequently resulted in a shutdown of government activities. This has become the longest experienced in modern times and although it has a direct impact on government establishments alone, there is an indirect impact on non-government businesses too. This event has resulted in a weakening of the U.S dollar against major currencies, including the British Pound.
