GBP/USD has posted small gains in the Tuesday session. In North American trade, the pair is trading at 1.3177, up 0.14% on the day. In the U.S., CB Consumer Confidence dropped sharply to 120.5, missing the forecast of 125.2 points. In the U.K., parliament will vote on amendments to the Brexit withdrawal agreement. On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve will publish its monthly rate statement. The U.K. will release Net Lending to Individuals and GfK Consumer Confidence.

All eyes will be on the British parliament on Tuesday, which will vote on amendments to the Brexit withdrawal agreement. There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding Brexit, but the confusion is unlikely to clear up after Tuesday’s parliamentary proceedings. Prime Minister May has said she will go back to Brussels to make some changes regarding the Irish border issue, but the EU has insisted that it will not reopen the withdrawal deal. On Tuesday, an EU official expressed dismay over the Brexit wrangling, saying that “London has negotiated with itself more than the EU”.

After four rate hikes last year, the Fed is widely expected to ease on policy in 2019. But by how much? The answer varies, depending on who you ask. The markets are not expecting any increases, while the Federal Reserve continues to stick with a forecast of two hikes. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has also weighed in, saying that the expect further rate increases this year. The CBO made the forecast in its 10-year outlook update, but did not specify how many hikes. The CBO report projected growth of 2.3% for the U.S economy in 2019, matching the forecast of the Federal Reserve.
