What to Watch: GBP/USD
Cable began the month by breaking an uptrend and now it’s buying and selling across the 1.3550 zone.
As you possibly can see, the extent strains up with the 50% Fib retracement of the final downswing, a assist zone from October, the 100 SMA on the 1-hour chart, and a descending channel resistance on the 1-hour chart.
We’ve received a few occasions lined up in the present day however merchants will possible give attention to the U.S. producer value will increase.
It additionally doesn’t damage the greenback’s highlight that Fed Chairman Powell will take part in a digital convention and will trace on the Fed’s tightening schedule.
Greater-than-expected costs will put extra strain on the Fed to boost its charges sooner quite than later.
If merchants value in a hawkish Fed in the present day, then no less than some merchants will do not forget that the Financial institution of England (BOE) not too long ago stunned markets by NOT elevating its charges. The distinction between the Fed and BOE’s biases might drag GBP/USD beneath 1.3500 and even to November’s lows.
