The GBP/USD popped into recent highs early in the overnight session and is trading just above the 1.3500 handle once again. The Sterling caught a quick boost after an announcement from the UK that the British Parliament would be willing to stay within the EU customs union beyond 2021 in an effort to head-off a 'hard-Brexit' scenario. The headlines quickly took the GBP/USD up about 30 pips on reaction, and the Sterling is continuing to drift upwards. The rest of the Thursday market window brings little of note for the GBP/USD with little on the economic calendar, and GBP traders will be left to digest the safety net of avoiding a hard Brexit as general market sentiment appears poised to continue aa mild recovery.
