GBP/USD, did someone remove the floor?


This is one of the reasons why I didn’t analyse the USD/GBP after Brexit and it was only a matter of time when something like this will happen. 662 pips slide in a matter of only 3 minutes was brutal last night, same as 530 pips return. I sow the move last night, but to be honest didn’t pay much attention on it. Who will trade something like this when you don’t have a clue what is going on, right!? I read today mostly in between the lines what was happend and why? Eamonn from wrote an article about views based on this move, you can read it there. I will still keep myself far away from the Pound in the future, will just follow from time to time.

    • Thanks, that’s insane. 😲 As I know, the ‘regular’ move was aprox 700 pips and my platform shows something like that. It’s VantageFX.


  • Uvjek kad se dogode slicni scenariji,npr. na paru EUR-USD u zadnjih 10-15 dana dva puta u sat vremena bez jakih-ikakvih-vijesti po 100 pipva bez nekog razloga sutra se nadu neka nerealna objasnjenja,ali ovakav pomak ,kao razlog aktiviranje članka 50 i tvrdi izlaz iz E.U.neces ti izjave -po sve to moze i ne biti.Mislim da su funtu sada razbili,sto je najgore ne vidim njen oporavak nego daljnje potonuce na nizim razinama…
