UK housing market doesn’t care much about Brexit uncertainties, as a result the GBP crosses are better bid this morning. As kinda expected the first week of Jan sees an up and down market.
I was short Cable , NZDUSD, long a few EURGBP and short NZDJPY. I covered them late last night as we didn’t get follow through below 1.35 and 0.7075 . I’ll trade ranges until we get a direction in this.
