• Pound underpinned by latest Brexit vote

    Last night MPs passed a Bill by one vote to force May to ask the EU for a Brexit extension in a attempt to avoid leaving with no deal and we've seen the Pound underpinned since. The Bill still has to be approved by the House of Lords and agreed to by the EU, so GBP pairs not rallying too far, but hey, mere detail to the algos. May/Corbyn talks have offered little of of note so far. Elsewhere US and China seem to be getting closer to a trade deal but FX markets still ranging overall.

    GBPUSD had a brief look into the 1.3120 support/pivot area that I highlighted but held well and from there it's been up to look at 1.3190-1.3200 again. EURGBP has held 0.8500 still helped by some Euro dip-demand generally.

    I remain GBP bearish overall and continue to rally-sell as my preferred strategy and buy back in the dips as I continue to respect the current demand and the two-way business amid the Brexit chaos fresh twists and turns.

    EURUSD failed above 1.1250 where I've highlighted good sell interest for a while now but equally holding 1.1220 0n the retreat. USDJPY is still struggling to make much headway to the topside but remains underpinned in a tight range.USDCHF has also been tightly bound as EURUSD finds a few buyers and EURCHF finds support with the SNB remain ever-watchful.

    AUDUSD remains range bound with large option expiries today and tomorrow while USDCAD has held around 1.3300 and rallied to post 1.3361 helped by softer oil prices and CADJPY selling now.

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

    Have a good day out there one and all.
