Brexit talks have begun with the UK caving into the EU demand that talks begin around the divorce agreement, then about a  new trade deal. What ´s next for the pound?

Here is their view, courtesy of eFXnews:

Bank of America Merrill Lynch FX Strategy Research notes that  GBP has been unable to maintain its initial gains after last week’s hawkish BoE outcome.

“In ordinary circumstances, GBP may have reacted in a more sustained, positive, manner (in a similar fashion to CAD and CAD rates following the recent guidance shift by the Bank of Canada) to such a shift in  MPC voting patterns.

But  these are not ordinary times  and we are not surprised to see  GBP paring back some of its initial gains against the backdrop of so much political uncertainty domestically,” BofAML argues.

As a result,  BofAML  sees further near-term GBP downside and keeps recommending playing that via long EUR/GBP exposure.
