GBP/USD Extends Consolodation Sessions, Looking for Cues By Carney

Published on środa, 20 grudzień 2017 09:21 ,by  FxGrow Investment Research Desk



GBP/USD edged up on Asian trading session with 1.3400 high but failed to press forward and dipped to 1.3374 low, currently trading 1.3388 intraday. On technical level, the pair managed to close above 10-EMA yesterday and currently flirting at it at 1.3380. Any upward action for the cable today should be contaminated at 1.3450 strong resistance area as the pair still failed to break it since last week.

Fundamentally, BOE's Gov. Carney will cross wires today on NY opening sessions where he will testify on the November Financial Stability Report before the Treasury Select Committee, which should offer fresh impetus to the GBP. On the other hand, Brexit negotiations with absence of clear terms still weights negatively on the pound and market is awaiting for fresh details as a BBC report mentioned that the Bank of England (BOE) is set to unveil plans allowing European banks to operate in the UK as normal post-Brexit. As for the greenback, tax bill vote should see the light either today and tomorrow followed by a press conference by president Trump which will set the tone for the U.S Dollar facing GBP.

GBP/USD Technical overview: 

Closing price: 1.3384

Target price: None

Resistance levels: 1.3450-60, 1.3500

Support levels: 1.3310, 1.3235+/-

Trend: Sideways / Down

Trend reversal price: 1.3454 

Comment: The market is still biased down, contained under 1.3450* resistance. A roll off from Mon-Tuesday's sideways days open up potential for selloffs to 1.3235 and chance to stretch for the low 13200's. Trade may again congest in Mon-Friday's range, but tight congestion will bear flag. A close over 1.3454* is needed for a short term reversing upturn.
