GBPUSD Breaks Above the 100-day Moving Average


GBPUSD moves to daily highs as the positive move accelerates after the pair breached above the 100-day moving average. Yesterday the pair managed to recover the early losses and return close to the 100-day moving average. British pound supported by robust economic data from the UK in the last two weeks.

The improved economic data are supporting the views that the UK economy is improving after the Brexit uncertainty. Many analysts argue now that the BOE will not proceed with an interest rate cut in the upcoming meeting as the economy shows clear signs of a  strong rebound.

Investors await later today the EU’s mandate for the Brexit trade negotiations, up for signing by the 27 member countries.
