February 21, 2019 | SQUARED DIRECT – The Pound peaked at 1.3108 on Wednesday as market participants were optimistic about the meeting between UK’s PM May and EU’s Juncker. Both leaders agreed that talks have been constructive, urging their respective teams to continue to explore options “in a positive spirit.”
They also agreed to talk again before the end of the month. However, after the meeting, the Sterling fell and closed the day negatively at 1.3050 mainly because there was no concrete final solution, as usual. The UK has a quiet macroeconomic calendar today, with only BOE’s Haldane scheduled to speak.

Support: 1.30 / 1.2930
