EURGBP Outlook

This was widely taken as positive news for the pound as it would make it easier for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to push for a Brexit deal in Parliament. If sellers can maintain momentum, the next support level for EURGBP is around 0.8480 where it previously made lows in March 10, March 24, and May 5.

Do note that leaders of the two leading political parties, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn, are scheduled to debate on live TV tomorrow and could cause volatility on pound pairs. Should EURGBP find fresh bids, it could bounce up to 0.8590 where it found support in October 21 and November 5.Download our latest quarterly market outlook for our longer-term trade ideas.
