GBP/USD Daily Price Forecast- Cable Linger Near 1.2935 Resistance Level Ahead of Labour Party Split

In the Asian session, the cable continued yesterday’s correction and remained around 1.2935 resistance levels. The GBP/USD pair created a new low in the morning hours near the 1.2927. But later the pair uplifted and touched the point near 1.2943 levels. Then, the cable has strongly deviated above the resistance level.

Notably today during the Labor party’s National Executive Council meeting, the party head pressed hard to negotiate on the Brexit. He urged the members of the council to sign the negotiations. While some Labor party MPs stayed on with their demand for the second referendum on Brexit. This situation tailored for a split in the party and this may further delay EU elections.

Followed by the feebled US Dollars during the morning hours, the GBP/USD pair did not gain much out of it. Also, yesterday’s US economic reports published did not appreciate the USD much. Hence GBP/USD displayed a resistance outlook today.
