GBP/USD pair fell by more than 1.2%

26 September, 2019

Yesterday, the GBP/USD pair fell by more than 1.2% amid Brexit uncertainty. The chances of next UK elections grow, so the bilateral agreement will take more time.

USD grows despite the US political risks. The likelihood of Donald Trump’s impeachment is extremely low since Republicans have the majority in the Senate, however, domestic and external political problems create enormous risks for the American economy. The idea of ​​an interim deal with China has been under discussion for two months now. Trump has repeatedly made positive statements regarding it, diverting attention from the political and financial situation but it is now becoming clear that the US-China conflict is hurting world exports, according to data from the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis.
