In the U.K. session on Wednesday, there were reports that two E.U. senior sources said that the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) has accepted the latest proposal on consent and removed the main hurdle of Brexit Deal. The party expressed its concerns about the E.U. and U.K. Brexit deal. The problematic issues were the custom borders of the Irish Sea and the mechanism for democratic consent for citizens of Northern Ireland.

After this report was published, GBP/USD showed a sudden jump amid the increased hopes for orderly Brexit. But in a later session, the DUP leader reported this news as false and dismissed the statement. Sterling dropped but did not give all gains back and continued to move in Bullish Trend as the Brexit talks were in progress.

In late Wednesday, it was announced that Eu and U.K. would not declare a deal on Brexit that day. But there are chances that could be published in this week because the latest negotiations were unclear.

All the best for today.
