GBP USD forecast, November 19, 2018

Current trend, On Thursday, GBP fell against the entire market. Investors are disappointed after the resignation of four British ministers, including Brexit minister Dominic Raab. In his letter to Prime Minister Theresa May, he stated that he could not agree to the deal since it violated the promises made by the Conservative Party to British citizens. It weakens the position of May before the battle in parliament, which now may ratify the draft treaty with the EU. If the Prime Minister does not convince the deputies, then not only the “tight” exit of Great Britain from the EU but also a serious internal political crisis is possible. Labor Party representatives stated that without the deal, they will insist on a new general election and, possibly, on holding a repeat referendum.
