GBP/USD consolidates in anticipation of elections in the UK
Tomorrow we expect high volatility on the back of elections in the UK and testimony of James Comey in Congress on the Trump case. Yesterday, JOLTS Job Openings showed 6.04 million in April against a forecast of 5.65 million.
The UK elections bear the greatest risk for the pound
The victory of the Labor Party is hardly possible, but the conservatives will lose some of their positions. Theresa May won’t be able to strengthen her positions to solve political problems, and to buy the British pound just because the Conservatives didn’t lose, it seems not quite right. We believe that if the pound shows growth at the first reaction, it will decline soon on the traditional "details" of uncertainty, and in fact, on investors' doubts about the benefits of the whole idea with re-elections. As a result, the elections will not affect the Brexit. Both parties will also painfully continue to search for acceptable conditions for Brexit.
Today in the US, the April volume of consumer credit is projected to decrease from $16.4 billion to $15.2 billion, but both these figures are large enough, volumes exceed the pre-crisis.
