The British pound gave up some of the gains it had made on Tuesday and fell back below 1.28. As long as the pound remains above the 1.26-mark, the recent drop could be considered a correction within the recent uptrend. We will now focus on a break above the short-term resistance at 1.2860. Once that level has been breached to the upside, sterling could make a run for 1.2950. A short-term support could however be at 1.2750 and 1.2720.
Bank of England Governor Mark Carney is scheduled to speak at an event in Washington today at 17:30 UTC and his comments could have an impact on the pound, provided that he refers to the BoE’s monetary policy.
The euro held above the 1.07-level and market participants seem to be shying away from taking any positions in the EUR/USD ahead of France’s presidential election this weekend. From a technical perspective, we see a symmetrical triangle in the 4-hour chart which could predict small breakouts.
Above 1.0720 the euro could rise towards 1.0760, whereas a break below 1.07 may send the euro towards 1.0675. However, given the risk aversion in the market we do not expect larger fluctuations within the next 48 hours.
From the U.S., we have the Philadelphia Fed Index due for release at 12:30 UTC but we doubt that this report will have a major impact on the greenback.
