GBP/USD collapses below 1.3100

Cable is shedding more than 1% for the day after testing the 1.3300 neighbourhood on Thursday, always against the backdrop of rising hopes on a Brexit deal.

However, all those hopes quickly evaporated today after PM Theresa May warned over the likelihood of a ‘no deal’ in the Brexit negotiations.

May also noted that both parties are now in an impasse and stressed that anything that does not respect the referendum result is unacceptable.

In the meantime, Cable keeps falling and is now challenging the top of the daily cloud around 1.3090″¦ after testing 1.3300 yesterday.
