British Pound: Further Gains Or Bearish Pullback Ahead?

Dear Traders,

The biggest story in the markets on Monday was the bullish breakout of the British pound, which soared to a high of 1.4088 after it broke above the psychological level of 1.40. The bullish breakout was triggered shortly after the announcement of an agreement on a transition plan for the period after Brexit. The big question among traders is now whether there could be further gains in the pound.

Today, we have U.K. Inflation numbers due for release at 9:30 UTC and the expectation is for a 2.8 percent read from previously 3 percent. A weaker reading could be an excuse for sterling bulls to take profit on long positions. In a nutshell, there is a risk of a bearish pullback if inflation disappoints.

GBP/USD: If the pound drops below the 1.40-barrier it may extend its slide towards 1.3950. On the topside, if the pound climbs back above 1.4050 it could extend its gains towards 1.41.

The euro was able to stabilize above 1.23 and appears to be heading towards 1.2370 now. For euro bulls it will be interesting whether the euro could also overcome the 1.24-hurdle in the near-term.

From the Eurozone we have the ZEW Survey scheduled for release at 10:00 UTC.
