GBP/USD Fundamental Analysis: November 12, 2018

Brexit remains to be the center for today’s Asian session since UK Prime Minister Theresa May canceled the emergency meeting to approve the Brexit deal this week. The meeting was postponed but the resistance from the cabinet remains strong, added to Brussels concerns, which delays the Brexit talks and lessen the possibility of the expected meeting in November. In this case, the Sterling bulls are on the less favorable situation. Market hopes for a miracle to relieves the pressure amid the heavy headlines with the Brexit as the main concern over the weekend causing more tension in the market. It seems that the market declined by 0.46% from this morning price level of 1.2911.

There is no major economic event for the UK, hence, traders can expect for thin trading volumes given that there is less US money market for the long Thanksgiving weekend but Tuesday seems to offer UK Average Earnings and GBP/USD traders are looking for something an early event to the headlines prior to major economic data. The dollar was strengthened by last week’s gains and grew to a 16-month high on Monday as traders anticipate for the US Federal Reserve to tighten monetary policies and the bullish tone of the greenback with the ongoing Brexit talks to further escalate the bullish situation. As for the technical perspective, the implied volatility premium grew sharply while an increasing demand for the British pound puts a bearish pressure while traders are anticipating for a much bigger decline of the currency. The risk appetite has also lessened during the Asian trading session as the EU’s situation worsened.
