Technical Analysis


The recent rise in the British currency was the result of a conservative victory in the December parliamentary elections, ending the Brexit intrigue. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has achieved his goal and in late January, Britain will begin the process of leaving the EU.

However, warnings from the Bank of England about the risk of lower inflation signal potential problems in the economy. Therefore, the currency pair may soon reach the level of 1.22000. This has already been indicated by lowering fractals on the chart.


The cryptocurrency added more than 30% in the last day, however, from the point of view of technical analysis, the bullish mood can continue to the level of 150.
