British Pound Declines Against US Dollar

The British Pound has declined sharply against the US dollar. What can GBPUSD traders expect next? Will the pair continue the downward trend?

4 October, OctaFX – The sterling declined sharply against the US dollar. This decline was due to the strong dollar, mixed economic data and Theresa May’s speech at the Tory party conference.

Her speech was reviewed by pundits as being sincere and better than her performance in 2017. She talked about the future of UK businesses after leaving the European Union and called for members to support her plan. With no major economic data expected today, traders will focus on tomorrow’s jobs numbers from the US.
