The U.S. dollar weakened against the euro and British pound ahead of today’s consumer price reports. While Monday’s trading in the EUR/USD was quiet and none of our entries was triggered, sterling traders had to struggle with false breakouts within a tight trading range. Thus we had to record some losses before our last buy attempt proved to be successful. The pound strengthened before the U.K. releases inflation figures today at 8:30 UTC and sterling traders should pay close attention to the CPI report as it could have a major impact on the price action in the GBP/USD.
Technically, the pound broke above a descending trend line, pointing to further upside momentum in the short-term. If the pair is unable to break above 1.2275, the recent upward movement could be on shaky ground.
Bullish scenario: Above 1.2275 we expect further gains towards the next resistance at 1.2320/50. Above 1.2375 the pound may even head towards 1.2430.
Bearish scenario: Below 1.2130 we expect further pound weakness.
Apart from the U.K. CPI report we have U.S. Consumer Prices scheduled for release at 12:30 UTC. Economists predict the report to show inflation is accelerating and if they are right the dollar will strengthen in the wake of Federal Reserve rate hike speculations before year-end.
