GBPUSD Rebound Sets Up Clear Scalp Levels Ahead of Major Event Risk

Notes:We’ve been tracking Cable’s rebound off confluence support since early in the week on SB Trade Desk with the advance now approaching the secondary resistance target into 1.5460. The near-term bias remains weighted to the topside while within the median-line formation off the weekly low with subsequent topside objectives at the 100-day moving average, currently at 1.5511, and 1.5551/67.

A break below the 1.54-handle puts us neutral with a move sub-1.5335/40 needed to shift the immediate focus back to the short-side targeting 1.5280 and median-line support. A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 29-31 pips per scalp.

Event risk for the remainder of the week is rather limited with only the University of Michigan Confidence survey’s on tap Friday morning. Although the FOMC policy meeting represents the biggest event risk for the week ahead, retail sales & inflation data out of both countries are likely to fuel added volatility in Sterling and dollar crosses ahead of the rate decision on Thursday.
