London-Brussels: Progress or Step Backward?

Today, the focus is on the decline in manufacturing activity in Germany, an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, as well as the feuds between the EU and the UK.



12:30 UTC

A report on the change in the number of people employed in the US nonfarm sector will be released. Forecast: 850 thousand. If the real data turns out to be higher, the USD may receive a positive market reaction.

Assets to trade: USD/CAD, EUR/USD



Manufacturing activity in Germany is slightly below the forecast. Affects EUR

Cyprus demands the EU to impose sanctions on Turkey. Affects TRY

The UK announces progress in trade negotiations with the EU. Affects FTSE 100

The number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase. Affects Brent

Brussels is suing London over Brexit violation. Affects GBP


Technical Analysis


Michael Gove, the head of the British delegation in negotiations with the EU, said that some progress had been made in the discussion of the future trade relations. Meanwhile, it became known that Brussels had filed a lawsuit against London for violating the terms of the Brexit deal. The current situation may have a negative impact on the GBP.

Nevertheless, the chart of the currency pair formed a kind of an inverted “head and shoulders” pattern, which indicates that the British currency is likely to strengthen.


The asset has consolidated above the support level of 114,000, so the asset is quite likely to grow.


If the quotes drop below 1.63250, the currency pair might move towards 1.61400.
