In the end, nothing has changed... .Just another delay. .No NO DEAL guaranteed. .Therefore General election or a deal..This will define the direction..Europe will allow another extension, 100% certain.

Sona Tel Chandi 200+ bips.  May be a very brief pop on opening as positions get unwound but look for session long pressure down.  Volatility will be high as BJ and his cadres bluster but overall downward trend

Now, it all hinges on Super Saturday when Parliament will hold a marathon session to determine if they support Johnson’s deal. If they approve the new withdrawal agreement, there are 2 paths: Parliament fast tracks the deal into UK law and they leave the EU on October 31 as scheduled or they get a technical extension to debate the details and set a new date for departure. In the EU’s eyes, a deal is done so they’ll agree to any extension. Either scenario should drive GBP/USD back to 1.30 and beyond. However if Parliament rejects Johnson’s Brexit agreement, there could be a second referendum or a general election and an almost certain collapse in GBP.

DeepBlue_FXInstead, lawmakers voted 322 to 306 in favor of an amendment that turned Johnson's planned finale on its head by obliging him to ask the EU for a delay, and increasing the opportunity for opponents to frustrate Brexit.

GBPJPY..the GBP looks more bullish than the JPY, atm, so the next area to get to for more upward movements,  141.16/17  to 141.55/75  then 1.4206 to 142.33/34 and if continues upward 143.17/18 Up to 144.28/29 to even 145.50…but again the GBP weekend ordeal, so if not up, downside 138.21/22 to 136.83 to 135.76/88 and then see??  love the song "stair way to heaven", but tonight just a flash, attitudes change, people in this world
