“Brexit optimism improved further yesterday and EUR/GBP continued lower amid news reports speculating that the Brexit deal could be settled on Monday. As such, the bearish break below the 200-day moving average last Friday implies that EUR/GBP could see continued downside pressure from a technical point of view in the short term”.

“However, at the end of the day, the near-term outlook for GBP will be driven by Brexit negotiations. Also, as the ‘end game’ draws closer, the more digital the event becomes. We expect EUR/GBP to break lower once a no-deal scenario can be ruled out.

Hence, we see risk is tilted towards a round of negative news and thus a reversal of the latest Brexit optimism”.
