The greenback slipped against the safe-haven Japanese yen on Tuesday, urged by repeated worries about trade. Still, the dollar rose against other currencies as Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell abstained from performing to more rate reductions even following data revealed an astonishing decline in U.S. producer inflation.
The European Commissioner President Jean Claude Juncker said that the U.K. was Blaming the failure of negotiations on the European Union, but the explanation should be given by British camp because the original sin was on Island and not on the continent. He further said that in a scenario of No-Deal Brexit, nobody would come out as the winner, and the U.K., along with E.U., would face a decline in economic growth. Today, the focus stays in the FOMC meeting minutes from the U.S. Federal Reserve.

GBP/USD – Sentiments of Hard Brexit Dominates
A day before, the GBP/USD was opened at 1.22899 and has shown a robust Bearish trend. On Tuesday, the Government of Boris Johnson, UK Prime Minister, reacted to a call between Angela Merkel, German Chancellor & Johnson. The officials said that Merkel told Prime Minister that Northern Ireland must remain part of the European Union’s customs union. Otherwise, the deal looked “essentially impossible, not just now but ever.”
In reply, Johnson said that the European Union’s unwillingness to make any deal based on his latest proposal gave way to a No-Deal Brexit. In response to this, European Council President Donald Tusk said that the U.K. was playing the blame game and that future of Europe was at stake. He also said that the U.K. did not want an extension nor a deal or to revoke. He added that he would not accept that blame game of pinning the failure of negotiation on E.U.
He concluded that in a scenario of No-Deal Brexit, nobody would come out as the winner, and the U.K., along with E.U., would face a decline in economic growth.
The situation is moving forward to a no-deal before the next week’s summit. Without that, Johnson has vowed to take Britain out of E.U. by the month’s end. However, if he doesn’t have a deal secured by Oct 19, he is required by English law to seek an extension.
The E.U. Officials have acknowledged that it is the strategy of the British Government to blame the responsibility of delay or no-deal Brexit onto them. E.U. has shown that they are willing to permit an extension.
Since the start of the Brexit negotiations, European Union has cleared its position that they need to keep Northern Ireland in European Custom Union unless the U.K. finds another suitable way to control the flow of goods across the Irish border without additional checking.
This chaos moved the prices of Pound to the lowest level on Tuesday and caused the Pair GBP/USD to move in the Bearish trend.
