GBP/USD Trends Upwards While EUR/USD Remains Stuck In Consolidation Phase

Dear Traders,

Monday was characterized by a weakening U.S. dollar which suffered a slight setback against its counterparts. The recent weakness can be attributed to uncertainty over the future monetary policy stance of the Federal Reserve. New York Fed President William Dudley plans to retire next year and with Dudley’s planned exit, the unfilled board seats create uncertainty over the Fed’s approach to policy in the coming year.

The EUR/USD extended its consolidative mode into the new week and traders are still struggling with false breakouts and limited price swings. ECB President Mario Draghi is scheduled to speak at the ECB Forum on Banking Supervision today at 9:00 UTC but these opening remarks might be not enough to free the euro from its lethargy. Technically speaking, we now wait for a break below 1.1570 to sell euros whereas on the topside, we expect potential gains to be limited until 1.1660 and 1.17 amidst subdued price action.

The best performer was the GBP/USD which rose towards 1.3180, providing buyers a good profit yesterday. The latest upward move is not surprising given the fact that the pound continues to oscillate within its range between 1.3340 and 1.30.
