Current trend

USD is growing against most major currencies due to a growing UK-China trade war. At the same time, pressure on GBP is exerted by the lack of certainty in the issue of Britain's withdrawal from the EU.

According to the statement of the head of the Conservative Party of England, negotiations on Brexit again reached a deadlock, the way out of which will not be found until the end of this year. The report disappointed investors, as a week ago British Prime Minister Theresa May assured the public that there were no obstacles to the implementation of the "soft" Brexit.

This week the key event for the trading instrument is the Bank of England meeting on monetary policy, which will be held this Thursday.

Today at 15:30 (GMT+2) market participants will follow the speech of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. Tomorrow at 13:00 (GMT+2), the Bank of England will announce its decision on the interest rate. Given the economic realities, both these events will reduce the pair further.
