Cable is correcting the losses triggered by UK PM Boris Johnson in the early part of the week. A no-deal Brexit sent the Pound down across the board. Later on this Wednesday at 18:00 GMT, the FOMC meeting can spark high volatility. The Federal Reserve is widely expected to cut 25 bps. The market will pay close attention to Fed’s Chairman Powell comments at 18:30 during the press conference.
