November 27, 2018 | AtoZ Markets The sterling has dropped to its lowest price since 15th November. Amid Brexit concerns, the British Pound is falling under more bearish pressure. The following looks at what could happen next based on Elliott wave theory.
UK prime minister. Theresa May, looks forward to sell her Brexit ideas to the house of commons next month. The agreement with the EU has raised many eyebrows with some suggesting the deal might not get the needed support from the MPs next month. The Pound therefore remains under more bearish pressure. Before the next month vote, Brexit headlines will still be major risk concerns for GBP traders. The US-China trade battle is next in line. USD gained in the Asian-London session after China denied progress of trade-talks with the US. From technical analysis perspective, the trend is still bearish for GBPUSD and might continue to 1.26.
