Yesterday was absolutely none of our favorite trading days as we had to struggle with volatile but choppy swings in the GBP/USD after U.K. Prime Minister May and European Commission President Juncker failed to reach an agreement on Brexit negotiations due to divisions over Ireland. The pound’s performance was disastrous for breakout trades as the pound failed to determine a directional bias, trading choppily sideways between 1.3540 and 1.3410. The pound sterling remains very sensitive to new Brexit headlines and as we enter the final phase of the year when liquidity typically dries out, we must prepare for unexpected price swings and heightened volatility despite low liquidity.
The euro ended the trading day virtually unchanged against the greenback and our short entry has unfortunately proved unsuccessful after bearish momentum faded. We will now focus on a break either above 1.1930 or below 1.1835.
Traders of the GBP/USD should better wait for price breakouts above 1.3565 (bullish) or below 1.3380 (bearish).
