Breaking News: Pound Fell After Brexit Is Delayed Until Early 2020

Posted by Fullerton Markets on October 23, 2019 at 5:43 PM

Although a no-deal Brexit is temporarily avoided, the delay in Brexit will create additional uncertainty in the trading landscape. GBP/AUD could head lower.

  • PM Boris Johnson suffered another major Commons defeat after his plan to rush the Brexit deal into law was blocked by the members of Parliament.
  • PM Johnson will most likely push for a general election instead of trying to get his deal through.
  • He mentioned that he will pull the bill altogether and seek an election if the MPs do not go along with his fast-track timetable.
  • However, the Parliament approved his new Brexit deal, something Theresa May never managed. Though Parliament rejected his plan to fast-track the deal, the odds of a no-deal Brexit have since largely faded.
  • For now, we could see a temporary sell-down in sterling after rising close to 2% for the past one month.
  • GBP/AUD seemed to have bounced off its resistance and could fall lower towards the 1.8500 price level.
