Ontario, Canada - November 19, 2019 /NewsNetwork/ —

The GBP/USD pair has been on a downward trend for the better part of the year. At the moment, the pair is in a tag of war as the UK tries to get past the Brexit deadlock. The Pound is recovering after it took a deep plunge on the 7th, but uncertainty still persists. However, analysts expect the pair to stumble further down due to the upcoming release of the UK inflation report. Forex broker comparison service FXBrokerFeed brings you news, and trends in the FX broker market, featuring an unstable and declining GBP/USD.

Low Inflation Projections

The UK is set to release this month’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the coming weeks. Economists and analysts have voiced low expectations and forecasted a drop to 1.6%, down from 1.7% last month. This seems to be the trend considering that the CPI value drop and fell below expectations over the past two months.

If the decelerated forecast is true, the GBP/USD is expected to take yet another hit that will cause it to stumble further. It is almost certain that the pair’s bearish trend will persist considering that two other major publications have fallen below expectations.

First, the labor market showed a manageable jobless rate at 3.8%, but it also revealed that the number of employed has dropped by about 52,000. The report also revealed that wage growth has slowed from about 3.8% last year to about 3.6% this year. Second, it has been revealed that the UK Gross Domestic Product growth rate has decelerated by about 1% per year. This is in spite of the GDP having generally risen by 0.3%.

In addition to the bleak CPI report, there is also the matter of the ongoing political uncertainty in the UK owing to the contentious Brexit deal. The General Elections are due to take place soon, and this is expected to make the Pound even more wobbly than it already is.

Dec 10, 2019

HOCKENHEIM, Germany — The wetter and wilder the German Grand Prix became, the more it suited Max Verstappen's nerveless driving. The 21-year-old Red Bull driver's brilliant performance came alongside a rare collapse from Mercedes. Verstappen mastered Sunday's treacherous conditions on a rain-soaked track to seal a second win in three races, and seventh of a career which appears destined to take the ice-cool Dutchman to the top of Formula One before too long. Verstappen raised his fist triumphantly as he took the checkered flag at the Hockenheimring, finishing ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat. A jubilant...
