Fundamental Overview:

UK government withdraws plan to scrap higher tax rate, boosting the British pound across the board.

UK Finance Minister Kwasi Kwarteng confirmed that his government will not go ahead with a plan to scrap a 45% rate of income tax.

Support - 1.0980 (21-EMA), Resistance - 1.1243 (55-EMA)

Summary: GBP/CHF spikes higher for the third straight session. Break above 21-EMA opens further upside in the pair.
