The British pound has pulled back against the US dollar during the week, reaching down to the 1.30 level before finding a little bit of support. We have received good economic numbers out of the United Kingdom, and that of course should be good for the British pound, but at the same time were worried about the US/China trade talks. That has held the entire market hostage, and this of course won’t be any different.

Longer-term I do believe that we should be looking for value in this pair, and that we are at historically cheap levels. However, the volatility is going to be extraordinary over the next couple of days, and then at this point you should probably keep your position size relatively small.
