GBP/USD – Daily Analysis

The GBP/USD was closed at 1.24884 after placing a high of 1.25064 and a low of 1.23236. Overall the movement of GBP/USD pair remained bullish throughout the day. The British Pound rose to near one month high against the U.S. dollar on Monday, ahead of Brexit talks, which are scheduled on Tuesday. Market participants are cautious and fear that the U.K. and E.U. might fail to make progress on upcoming trade talks. Sterling rose above 1.2500 level, which is its highest since May 5.

The chances for any real progress in negotiations between the E.U. and U.K. are very low, and that is why GBP/USD was raised on Monday on the back of increased risk sentiment. Time for agreeing to extend the transition period by June 30 deadline is running out when the U.K. had already denied extending the transition period, the risk for no-deal Brexit increased and made investors cautious.

Market participants are buying Sterling with hope for failure in the next round of talks and catching big moves on Tuesday, and this large buying on Monday gave a push to GBP/USD pair. No-deal Brexit would further harm the already disturbed economy of Great Britain due to the coronavirus crisis, and it would make the recovery even more difficult.

Some market participants think that the increased economic growth concerns have made Britain’s bargaining power a little less, and they are waiting to place any big move. 

On the data front, at 13:30 GMT, The Final Manufacturing PMI from Britain in the month of May came in line with the expectations of 40.7. The U.S. dollar was weak across the board due to the poor-than-expected ISM Manufacturing PMI release, which came in short of expected 43.5 as 43.1 and weighed on the U.S. dollar. The weak U.S. dollar further added in the upward trend of GBP/USD on Monday.
