What to Watch: GBP/USD
A final-minute promoting forward of the U.Okay.’s two-day vacation busted GBP/USD beneath a low-key descending channel yesterday.
Can the bulls convey Cable again to its established uptrend?
Asian and early European session merchants are feeling risk-friendly at the moment because of China loosening extra of its restrictions and the U.S. printing a stronger-than-expected manufacturing report.
GBP/USD caught among the good vibes because it broke above a decent consolidation at 1.2475 to commerce nearer to the 1.2550 in the previous few hours.
I’ll be watching the 1.2575 degree intently for indicators of promoting.
As you may see, 1.2575 sits close to the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the final large downswing. Extra importantly, it strains up with the damaged channel help from yesterday.
Escalating issues between Russia and the U.S. (and its allies), or deal with the Fed’s steadiness sheet tightening starting this month might encourage an anti-risk wave that may drag GBP/USD again beneath 1.2500.
If the risk-friendly theme extends to late European or U.S. buying and selling classes, although, or if Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations encourage extra GBP shopping for, then Cable might return inside its short-term ascending channel.
Watch this setup intently, mates!
