For sterling traders Thursday has been another challenging trading day with GBP/USD fluctuating between 1.3990 and 1.3850. The U.K. GDP was revised lower but that report was not enough to spur bearish momentum towards 1.3830 and 1.38. The reason for yesterday’s rise was mainly a weakening USD which gave up gains from the FOMC minutes.
The euro traded higher following the ECB minutes but bullish momentum fizzled out after the euro was unable to overcome the 1.2350-level. The minutes were not overwhelmingly hawkish but what is interesting to note is that ECB officials expressed concern that the Dollar was being deflated artificially by U.S. policy which in turn was lifting the euro.
There are no major reports scheduled for release today that could lead to a major change in sentiment. Thus, we will focus on the technical picture.
EUR/USD: We now expect the pair to trade between 1.2330 and 1.2220. If the euro, however, breaks above 1.2360 bullish momentum could accelerate towards 1.24.
GBP/USD: As long as the cable remains below 1.3970 we prepare for dips towards 1.3880 and 1.3810. A sustained break above 1.40, however, will increase the chances of a bullish run for 1.42.
We wish you good trades and a beautiful weekend.
