The Sterling posted massive gains after news of Brexit settlements between the EU and the UK. After months of squabbling between London and Brussels, both sides finally declared that there would be a transition period following the UK’s departure from the EU in March 2019. In response, the Pound soared dramatically against its peers. But I’m seeing good opportunities to catch today. Check this out…


GBP/USD- Potential Descending Triangle

A break below $1.4020/1.4000 can lead the pair towards 1.3975 and that’s where GBP/USD completes a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement.
