GBP: miss-deadline drop
Information is not investment advice
Another weekend missed – another deadline missed. “Differences remain”. So, the pound dropped – here is what we have.
Against the US dollar, it was at the highs of 1.36 as the weekend was rolling in. But the deal wasn’t being rolled into the negotiations table, so the optimism left. As did GBP/USD: currently, it’s approaching 1.32. If no sign of an approaching deal comes in, it may well go below 1.32.
In the meantime, EUR/GBP rose from 0.90 to 0.92 and even inched above it. It’s too early to speak about 0.93 but if within a day or so there is no Brexit deal in sight, definitely 0.93 may be a potential target for bulls here.
The US dollar index has all chances of reaching the 2000s high of 120.00.
Many investors treated gold as a protection against inflation. However, last week, gold lost its major support and dropped despite rising inflation. Why did it act like this?
First, "ETH merge" Google requests are on the rise. At the same time, "buy ETH" requests are at their two-year lows, which is quite a negative factor ahead of the vast update. The community either doesn’t believe in the success, or they are following the "buy the rumors – sell the news" rule and waiting for the massive dump after the merge.
