GBP/USD analysis for 04/12/2017:

The ongoing Brexit negotiations will be in focus today. The UK's Prime Minister Theresa May is set to have lunch with President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker. During the weekend, despite intense efforts, Theresa May and the Irish government have failed to reach a deal on the crucial Brexit issue of the Northern Ireland border. "The Irish government remains hopeful – but at this stage, it is very difficult to make a prediction," said an official. May will meet Juncker with the UK's final offer on the three main issues in the first round of Brexit talks – the Irish border, citizens' rights and the financial settlement.
