GBPUSD Monthly High in View Amid Rebound in U.K. Production

GBPUSD Monthly High in View Amid Rebound in U.K. Production

- U.K. Industrial Production to Rebound in August

- GBPUSD Holds Key Support; Bullish Trend in Focus

Trading the News: U.K. Industrial Production

The British Pound may make a more meaningful run at the 1.6300 handle as U.K. Industrial Production is expected to increase 0.4% in August.

What’s Expected:

Time of release: 10/09/2013 8:30 GMT, 4:30 EDT

Primary Pair Impact: GBPUSD

Expected: 0.4%

Previous: 0.2%

DailyFX Forecast: 0.4% to 0.6%

Why Is This Event Important:

The rebound in business outputs may encourage the Bank of England (BoE) to adopt an improved outlook for the U.K. economy, which could heighten bets of seeing the central bank implement its exit strategy ahead of schedule.

Expectations: Bearish Argument/Scenario

The U.K. may see a more meaningful pickup in business outputs on the back of easing input costs, and the shift in the policy outlook may keep the British Pound afloat as the central bank slowly moves away from its easing cycle.

However, the recent slowdown in private sector consumption may limit production over the near-term, and a dismal development may bring a more meaningful correction in the GBPUSD as market participants weigh the outlook for monetary policy.

How To Trade This Event Risk(Video)

Bullish GBP Trade: Industrial Output to Rebound

  • Need green, five-minute candle following the print to consider a long British Pound trade
  • If market reaction favors a long trade, buy GBPUSD with two separate position
  • Set stop at the near-by swing low/reasonable distance from entry; look for at least 1:1 risk-to-reward
  • Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is hit, set reasonable limit

Bearish GBP Trade: Data Dampens Outlook for Stronger U.K. Recovery

  • Need red, five-minute candle to favor a short GBPUSD trade
  • Implement same setup as the bullish British Pound trade, just in opposite direction

July 2013 U.K. Industrial Production

Industrial outputs in the U.K. held flat in July after advancing a revised 1.3% the month prior, while manufacturing advanced another 0.2% during the same period. The weaker-than-expected print dragged on the British Pound, with the GBPUSD slipping below the 1.5570 region, but the sterling regained its footing during the day to close at 1.5623.
