GBP/USD turns higher after dramatic sell-off
GBP/USD has started to regain ground lost yesterday after a tumultuous session. With Jacob Rees-Mogg seeking to spearhead a vote of no-confidence, his ability to oust Theresa May will be a key determinant for the pound going forward. If she is replaced by a Brexiteer, we are looking at a very high likeliness of a no-deal Brexit.
However, with May sticking to her guns yesterday, we are starting to see fears ease for now, with the price rising. However, this looks like a retracement, with any near-term upside likely to be met by a bearish downturn before long. As such, any deeper rebound looks like an opportunity to short GBP/USD, with a bearish outlook remaining in play unless we break above $1.3072.
