In case the MPs vote for the deal, they will then be asked to approve the fast-track procedure in which they are expected to consider the legislation in the three-day timetable.
GBPUSD hit the psychologically-important 1.30 handle yesterday in a major push higher from the 3-year lows it created in September. The pound has currently gained 5.4% in October only.
The bulls have set their eyes on the major resistance at $1.3080, consisting of the 100 WMA, the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the March – September move lower, as well as the ascending trend line that connects the higher lows since 2016. This triple confluence of resistance is likely to play a major role in the price action over the coming days.
On the downside, the horizontal support at $1.2770 is expected to provide support to bulls, followed by the 100 DMA at $1.2713.
