A UK poll conducted by YouGov / Sky News last night on who performed the best at the leader debate last night showed the results were nearly split exactly down the middle. From a total of 1600 people PM Johnson received 51% of the votes and Jeremy Corbyn 49%. The latest YouGov poll also out last night had Conservatives down with a 42% lead (-3%), Labour 30% (+2), Lib Dem 15% (unch) and Brexit Party 4% (unch). The GBPUSD has fallen away from the overhead 1.3000 resistance level (there is a large option level there today) as the Conservative party gives up some of their recent lead in the polls.
