The Pound set to continue its decline

FX:GBPUSD   British Pound / U.S. Dollar
The dollar continues its advance. Investors see a global slowdown but figure the US economy to be the biggest and strongest so they put their bets on it coming out ahead. Trump has signed a shutdown avoidance agreement but is now pushing for a national emergency in order to siphon funds from the budget agreed on by congress. Very sticky situation that could lead to a fall in the dollar if the funds are misappropriated.

The pound is continuing its decline. We see more turmoil than solutions being propagated in the UK. Prime Minister Theresa May faced hardships yet again from her Parliament when they refused to endorse her return to the EU negotiating table. Who will be in charge of the negotiations remains to be seen but we remain bearish on the whole situation because the deadline is quickly approaching.

We look towards the employment data set for the UK on Tuesday to figure out if inflation will stay within the bounds of the mandate the Bank of England. This data is important, it shows us if the BoE might change its monetary policy because of sharp declines in employment or earnings . After all this data is compiled, we will see an inflation report on Thursday.

Technical analysis shows us that the pound will likely continue its descent. Two doji candles indicate that despite a good data set from the UK the pound is not ready to climb back to previous highs. The price crossed over the 21 EMA and remains under the 200 EMA . A support level at 1.26734 is a good level to put target take-profits.
