Global markets are expecting movements on the release of retail sales and inflation figures from the U.S. and U.K. The major highlight of the day was the British pound which soared to its highest level since mid-May versus the dollar, following a statement that administrators were confined to a deal for Britain to withdrawal the European Union.

Sterling spiked after the report from Bloomberg about the Brexit deal on Tuesday. It was reported that the United Kingdom and the European Union have agreed on a legal draft of Brexit deal after the meeting of both parties.

BTC/USD – Daily Analysis

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the United States is repeatedly requesting remarks on a suggested exchange-traded fund (ETF) based nearby bitcoin and Treasury bonds.

Technically, Bitcoin is facing key resistance at $8,739. At the time of writing, bitcoin is exchanging hands at $8,310, drawing a 0.1% loss on Wednesday.

It’s also worth marking that moving average crossovers are depending on past prices, and these tend to lag the price action. So we can’t depend on these lagging indicators. 

Anyways, the Bitcoin continues to trade within a tight trading range of 8,115 – 8,340 for another day. We need a breakout to determine further trends.

The release of European & German ZEW economic Sentiment came higher than expectations and supported the upward trend of EUR/USD.

GBP/USD – Sterling On Fire Amid Brexit Updates 

The GBP/USD was opened at 1.26063 and has placed a high of 1.27989 and a low of 1.25984 until now. The pair is currently trading at 1.27857 and has shown a robust Bullish trend.

Sterling spiked after the report from Bloomberg about the Brexit deal on Tuesday. It was reported that the United Kingdom and the European Union have agreed on a legal draft of Brexit deal after the meeting of both parties.

Earlier this news, the E.U.’s top negotiator, named Michel Barnier, said that some possibilities deal could be secured at the end of Summit – which is due this week. This news gave hopes to an orderly Brexit on the stated deadline, October 31, and caused a sharp rise in the prices of GBP/USD.

There were also rumors about an emergency Summit to be held on the said Brexit deadline only hours before the ending of the U.K.’s membership of the European Union, which is scheduled on October 31. Such a summit could only take place when there would be reasonable chances for a deal. 

The draft deal is now dependent on PM Boris Johnson getting support from the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party, which is still uncertain. Both parties are optimistic that the end would make an agreement of Tuesday because E.U. officials have demanded the details of Brexit deal within hours rather than days ahead E.U. Summit, which is to be held on Thursday.

Apart from Brexit news, the macroeconomic data from the United Kingdom was not supportive of Sterling, but due to Brexit sensitivity, the traders almost ignored the macroeconomic sentiment on Tuesday. At 13:30 GMT, the Average earnings Index of the U.K. came in against Sterling as 3.8% in comparison of expected 4.0%. The same was with the Unemployment Rate, which came as 3.9% against 3.8% expectations. 

However, the Claimant Count Change came in as expected 21.1K and had no effect on GBP.

All the best for today.
