The UK NIESR GDP estimate mentioned in 'Morning Call' is at 3 pm, same time as US consumer sentiment data. Confluence of the two data sets could cause a big push in either direction. 

Note gbpusd was well bought up on the last push below 12400. 12580 was yesterdays high.

Strong UK manu prod data this morning overturned by latent dollar strength.

Interesting long term chart with graphics from Bloomberg, I would add there are 2 scenarios likely to lead to a retest of 1,2000, a no-deal Brexit and a Labour win in a snap election.

Interesting Bloomberg article quoting 'un-named sources' that senior officials on both sides now think a deal is unlikely. GPBUSD could well test the referendum lows on an official no deal statement and the Euro would not be safe from fallout either.

    • Thanks @CharlotteIG ! That's reassuring. I'm sure IG have already seen this, but someone on twitter linked to this Policy Statement from the FCA, saying that it will come into effect on 6th January: https://www.fca.org.uk/publication/policy/ps20-10.pdf "Prohibiting the sale to retail clients of investment products that reference cryptoassets"  Incidentally the trader  on twitter who linked to that, was commenting on the recent drop in bitcoin  and said "Crypto exchanges started announcing liquidation of UK customer accounts ..not surprising BTC sold off." Best wishes, Cate
    • Hey @Tezzza,  If you're receiving statements in the post you can stop by emailing us with a request to stop sending them.  If you're referring to the emailed statements you receive everyday this can't be stopped. Once of the regulatory guidelines is to keep clients informed on their trading. Our email statements is how we do that. However, some clients have a separate folder in their emails to forward these.  All the best 
    • Hey Cate,  It is true that the regulators are looking to put a ban on Cryptos however there hasn't been enough information yet for us to take action. When we have more information we will reach out to client regarding their positions.  I completely understand and closing positions isn't something we want to do but we will have to stay inline with regulator guidelines. Please know, we will keep you updated.  All the best.
