GBPUSD price drops following UK Parliament vote

GBPUSD price is coming back under selling pressure against the US dollar after finding strong technical resistance from the 1.3245 level on Monday.

March 26, OctaFX – Sterling remained relatively stable during overnight trading after the UK Parliament voted to take control of Brexit from Theresa May. In the vote yesterday, the government lost by 329 to 302, which is an indication of how difficult it is for a vote to pass before the deadline.

In addition, three cabinet ministers voted against the government and resigned. The new vote gives hope to some pro-EU members, who remain confident that the government will negotiate a deal that leaves the UK closely aligned with the EU.
