By Ilan Levy-Mayer, VP

British pound futures; British Pound has bounced nicely since lows made in November of 2017. Talks about extending the "Brexit transitional period" are helping the fundamental side and the chart is looking healthier. Notice we got a recent buy signal ( blue slanted arrow) but in order for this rally to be significant, this market needs to close above 137.50. As always, if you like to chat markets, have questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.
