GBP/USD – Pressured by Lack of Progress on Brexit Talks, Mixed Data

June 30, 2020

Sterling underperformed, slipping to 1.2295 from yesterday’s 1.2335 on Brexit worries resulting from a lack of progress in a new round of talks between the UK and EU. Speculation continues to about negative rates in the UK following last week’s Bank of England policy meeting. Even the Euro benefitted against the beleaguered Pound. The EUR/GBP cross saw the shared currency gain 0.5% to 0.9145 from 0.9095 yesterday. The last Commitment of Traders report which we highlighted saw a decline in speculative GBP shorts to -GBP 15,998 contracts from the previous week’s -GBP 24,048.
