• Risk sentiment improves but UK still stares into the abyss

    We've seen some positive risk sentiment return since Friday's wobble but it's all very fragile out there still. Meanwhile Brexit continues to grab headlines as May loses control of the process to parliament and the UK stays firmly in a complete mess.

    GBPUSD has been back down to test 1.3150-60 support again after a test of 1.3250 then capping around 1.3220-30 again amid all the uncertainty.EURGBP has also been range bound and presenting good two-way business with the Euro still having wobbles of its own while finding the usual dip demand.

    I remain GBP bearish overall and continue to rally-sell as my preferred strategy but I continue to see good two-way business as the Brexit chaos takes fresh twists and turns.

    EURUSD remains tightly bound with bids still building at 1.1280-85 and sellers around 1.1330 but remains fragile while USDJPY has found resistance into 110.30 as expected yesterday and had a nice drop back into 109.70 before rallying again to 110.24.

    USDCHF remains range bound as EURUSD and EURCHF both steady and with the SNB ever-watchful still.AUDUSD has staged a decent recovery after holding 0.7080 helped by renewed AUDJPY demand while

    USDCAD continues to range and after failing into 1.3450 has retreated to look at 1.3380 bids/support helped by CADJPY demand and firmer oil price on the improved risk sentiment.

    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.
