GBP/USD Rally to Face BoE- Outlook Remains Constructive Above 1.3160

Chart Created Using TradingView

Technical Outlook: Sterling is trading within the confines of a well-defined ascending median-line formation extending off the late-Julye lows with the advance reversing off the upper parallel in New York yesterday. Heading into the Bank of England (BoE) interest rate decision tomorrow morning, the immediate advance looks vulnerable while below basic trendline resistance extending off the 6/29 high.

Interim support rests with the 1.33-handle backed by the weekly / monthly open at 1.3235. Note that a sliding parallel extending off the 6/27 low also converges on this level heading into tomorrow. Broader bullish invalidation is set to the weekly opening-range low (1.3159/66).

From a trading standpoint, I would be looking to fade sterling weakness into the rate decision while above 1.3159. Keep in mind markets are largely expecting a cut with 50 of 52 economists polled by Bloomberg calling for at least a 25bps cut (the most extreme bet calling for a 50bps cut). With that said, the risk for a rip higher in sterling if the central bank does not cut. A break lower targets 1.3055 & 1.2954.

  • A summary of the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI)shows traders are net short GBPUSD- the ratio stands at -1.12(47% of traders are long)-weakbullishreading
  • Long positions are 3.3% higher than yesterday and 22.0% below levels seen last week. Short positions are 0.7% lower than yesterday and 38.3% above levels seen last week.
  • Open interest is 1.1% higher than yesterday and 0.8% above its monthly average.
  • SSI flipped to net short yesterday as the exchange rate rebounded off near-term structural support- constructive. An increase in short exposure on building open interest keeps the long-bias in play. That said, the pair is coming into key near-term resistance with the risk for a pullback before rallying to new highs. Keep in mind we also have the U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls report on tap for Friday.
