Deal or No Deal?
The UK and the EU have entered another intense round of negotiations in Brussels however, time is running up. Nonetheless, the top PM advisor Dominic Cumming’s resignation last week could be a game-changer as he was known for favoring a Brexit without a deal. Both sides' economies are exhausted from lockdowns and coronavirus rising numbers therefore a no-deal scenario is still a possibility but remains unlikely.

A daily close below the low end of the zone at 1.3185 signals a weaker bullish sentiment. As such, bears may press towards the weekly support level at 1.2916.
