2 July GBPUSD Fundamental Outlook: Pair is trading slightly lower

The GBPUSD pair is trading slightly lower than Friday’s close. Could the pair reverse and move higher today? What does the following 2 July GBPUSD Fundamental Outlook explain?

2 July, OctaFX – The pound is down following a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) which revealed Brexit insecurities.

According to the quarterly survey of the British financial services sector, many executives and a third of banks surveyed were “not so confident” of implementing Brexit plans by March 2019.

The report will be in the mind of Theresa May, who will meet with her divided cabinet on Friday to try and come up with a consensus proposal. In recent weeks, a number of significant manufacturers like BMW and Airbus have said that they would consider leaving the UK if a deal is not found.
