GBP/USD: Cable Gaps Down to Start a Big Week for the British Pound

GBP/USD Talking Points:

– The British Pound is heading lower to start a big week for the currency, as a number of data releases are on the calendar to go along with more twists and turns on the Brexit front.

– Last week saw strength in GBP/USD as the pair re-claimed ground above the 1.3000 handle; but that theme began to reverse last Thursday ahead of the FOMC rate decision and sellers have been in-control ever since. This continues three months of rather aggressive mean reversion in the pair.
