GBP/USD Daily Price Forecast – The Cable Bears Caged Ahead of UK March Public Sector Net Borrowing Figures

On the Brexit front, matters remain chaotic. Conservative party members concentrate on bringing down the current PM, and they focus less on solving the Brexit. Cross-party talks are still ongoing with less/no progress. On the Technical side, sentiment remains bearish.

The GBP/USD pair rang the Wednesday opening bell near 1.2937 levels. The pair had maintained a comfortable tone near 1.1300 levels for quite some time. The primary reason for the silent sessions was the long Easter Break. The MPs just arrived at the House yesterday and resumed talks on Brexit.

Nevertheless, things continue to stay uncertain on the Brexit front. The Conservatives are more focussed on getting UK PM May ousted, instead of on Brexit. Senior Conservative backbencher Nigel Evans called on Mrs. May to announce her resignation to allow a contest to choose her replacement to begin “straight away”. Amidst nuisances, May plans to come again for a fourth Brexit voting session on her Withdrawal deal.

On the other hand, cross-party talks run out of schedule as May is already fuzzed up with her party issues. The Labour Party Leader Corbyn completely disagree on going with the recapitulated May’s deal without any change. He highlights that the deal to get approved must undergo the required modifications.

From today, there are 191 days left for the new Brexit date of October 31, 2019. Within this period, the House is expected to meet for at least 70 days.

The Wednesday Economic Calendar weigh less with UK and US significant events. Hence, there are fewer chances of any radical movement in the pair from this front.
