GBP/USD: the pound shows growth

Current trend

GBP showed growth against USD in trading on Monday, continuing the development of a powerful correction impulse formed at the end of last week. The instrument grew against the background of a calm beginning of the week in terms of macroeconomics and the publication of quite strong data on house prices from Halifax for March.

GBP strengthened mostly due to the USA-China trade conflict development. In addition, the investors are focused on Brexit negotiations, as the new contentious issue has raised – Gibraltar question. Now it is the Overseas Territory of Great Britain, but Spain has a long-standing claim to it. In case of UK leaving EU, Madrid demands shared administration of the Gibraltarian airport and a partnership in the border control issues.
