GBP/USD Remains the Most Bullish Pair, as the Brexit Deal Inches Closer
Skerdian Meta • 1 min read
The GBP/USD dived pretty hard during the coronavirus crash in February/March this year. It reversed higher from March, as Brexit fell into the shadows during spring and summer, but the issue came back into the spotlight in September, sending the GBP down once again. However, the rumours since early October have been positive, and this has been supporting the GBP.
The USD has also turned bearish, and this has fueled the bullish trend in this pair, which is picking up momentum as the optimistic comments keep coming. The GBP/USD increased to 1.34 earlier today, but the great manufacturing and services report from the US, showing a jump in activity, has pushed the USD higher and the GBP/USD lower. We will try to buy this pair, probably at the 20 SMA (gray).

I’m hearing rumours we may see an emergency “temporary #Brexit deal” agreed this week to avoid #NoDeal happening in midst of #COVID19.
If this is true, it’s important to point out that this will *not* be a “deal”.
It’s essentially an extension. The problem doesn’t go away.
