• Fragile world still but Pound underpinned again

    The Brexit shambles continues and today we see a vote, or three, on the next stage. May has seemingly offered some hope of a delay/No Brexit again and the Pound has duly found renewed support after a retreat yesterday. Meanwhile the world continues to turn on an equally fragile axis.

    GBPUSD has been up to 1.3288 after holding a dip back into 1.3150-60 as we wait on today's votes and helped by a generally softer US$. EURGBP had a rally back above 0.8600 helped by some month-end demand but since retreated again on the GBP buying and has fallen to lows of 0.8563 (GBPEUR up to 1.1678) not seen since June 2017.I remain GBP bearish overall and continue to rally-sell then buy the dips while respecting the current demand. Broken record? We'll see but I've also pointed out that equally there are plenty in favour of buying dips at the moment too so I continue to see good two-way business.

    EURUSD is still ranging and going nowhere in real terms but higher to test 1.1400 again helped by the US$ supply while USDJPY has duly retreated again to test 110.30. USDCHF also continues in a tight range with EURCHF also still tightly bound.

    AUDUSD has traded tightly again but capped nicely at 0.7200 while USDCAD continues to trade narrowly but fallen back on softer USD sentiment and firmer oil prices after the early week wobble thanks to Mr T.

    Fickle Forex markets ever prevailing so be ready with your entry/exit levels and orders as always.

    Sad day yesterday as we learned that the founder and songwriter of seminal 80's band Talk Talk ,Mark Hollis, has left us far too early aged just 64. A timely reminder of our own mortal coil. A good friend of mine who knew Mark well had this to say " a great musician and a great bloke". I need say no more. RIP Mark and thank-you.

    Have a good day one and all.
