Those who traded the British pound Monday had to have patience as the cable provided only later some gains towards the 1.3950-barrier. After a false bearish break-out below 1.3840, GBP recovered its losses and is currently facing a next resistance at 1.3950. Once it breaks above 1.3965, we might see a renewed test of 1.40/1.4020.
The most important U.K. data will be Manufacturing PMI scheduled for release at 9:30 GMT and if data surprises to the downside, we expect sterling to fall back below 1.39. A lower target could be at 1.3820.
The euro traded lower against the U.S. dollar on speculation the European Central Bank will add further stimulus at the ECB’s next meeting on March 10. Euro-area inflation turned negative in February putting pressure on the central bank to consider further easing. Within the next few days we expect the euro to trend lower against the greenback. For the time being, we focus on the 1.08-mark, which could act as a current support for the EUR/USD. Bearish momentum could accelerate with a break below 1.0770.
Traders should keep an eye on important economic data such as the German Unemployment report, due at 8:55 GMT and from the U.S. the ISM Manufacturing index, scheduled for release at 15:00 GMT.
