British Pound overview

The pound sterling (symbol: £; ISO code: GBP), commonly known as the pound and less commonly referred to as Sterling, is the official currency of the United Kingdom, Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, the British Antarctic Territory, and Tristan da Cunha. It is subdivided into 100 pence (singular: penny, abbreviated: p). A number of nations that do not use sterling also have currencies called the pound. At various times, the pound sterling was commodity money or bank notes backed by silver or gold, but it is currently fiat money, backed only by the economy in the areas where it is accepted. The pound sterling is the world's oldest currency still in use and which has been in continuous use since its inception.Sterling is the fourth most-traded currency in the foreign exchange market, after the United States dollar, the euro, and the Japanese yen. Together with those three currencies and the Chinese yuan it forms the basket of currencies which calculate the value of IMF special drawing rights. Sterling is also the third most-held reserve currency in global reserves (about 4%).The British Crown dependencies of Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man produce their own local issues of sterling (the Guernsey pound, the Jersey pound and the Manx pound) which are considered fully equivalent to UK sterling in their respective regions. The pound sterling is also used in Gibraltar (alongside the Gibraltar pound), the Falkland Islands (alongside the Falkland Islands pound), Saint Helena and Ascension Island in Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha (alongside the Saint Helena pound). The Bank of England is the central bank for the pound sterling, issuing its own coins and banknotes, and regulating issuance of banknotes by private banks in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Banknotes issued by other jurisdictions are not regulated by the Bank of England; local governments use Bank of England notes as backing for local issuance by allowing them to be exchanged 1:1 at face value.

#VCI #FOREX #NEWS 🐺⠀ ⠀ ⚠️ #EUR/ #GBP MOVES TO 3-MONTH TOPS NEAR 0.8760 ON #STERLING SELL-OFF⠀ ⠀ 📍GBP-selling keeps fuelling the upside in the cross.⠀ 📍#Brexit cross-party talks ended without deal (as expected).⠀ 📍⠀ #PM May could announce a timetable to leave Number 10.⠀ ⠀ 📍Further selling pressure around the #BritishPound is pushing #EUR/GBP further north of 0.8700 the figure, reaching at the same time fresh 3-month tops.⠀ ⠀ 📍EUR/GBP weaker on Brexit, #trade⠀ ⠀ The European cross keeps edging higher this week, navigating in the area of multi-month tops well beyond the 0.8700 handle against the backdrop of increasing downside pressure in the Sterling and a generalized sour sentiment in the risk-associated space.⠀ ⠀ In fact, US-China trade tensions have been exacerbated as of late after China ruled out the continuation of the negotiations, at least in the near term.⠀ ⠀ On the domestic front and back to Brexit, PM #TheresaMay is expected to announce a timetable for her departure from Number 10, while Labour #leader #J.Corbyn said the party and the government compromise to clinch an agreement ‘have gone as far as they can’, all after cross-party talks ended without any deal.⠀ ⠀ 📍EUR/GBP key levels⠀ ⠀ The cross is up 0.24% at 0.8752 and a break above 0.8792 (200-day SMA) would expose 0.8821 (high Feb.5) and finally 0.8840 (monthly high Feb.14). On the flip side, initial support aligns at 0.8688 (100-day SMA) followed by 0.8604 (55-day SMA) and then 0.8488 (low May 6).
