On Wednesday, focus will be on the Mid-Term US Election Results and it will circulate around on who will hold the control of Congress of United States for the next two years. The results will be out staring midnight GMT, with the final states reporting at around 6:00 GMT. If Republicans retain control, both the greenback and Wall Street will likely react rallying strongly. If US elections result against the greenback, the GBP/USD pair rally will likely be exacerbated, while on a positive outcome for Trump, dollar's gains may be limited against the Pound.
