GBP/USD:

  • Slips to a fresh weekly low of 1.7022 as Bank of England (BoE) Minutes shows a 9-0 vote to retain current policy.
  • Sitting at key Fibonacci confluence around 1.7020-30; lower-high in place?
  • Markets turning attention to the BoE Inflation report due out on August 13 as there appears to be a growing rift within the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC).
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) continues to show net-short positioning in GBP/USD as the ratio stands at -2.6125.

NZD/USD:

  • Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) is widely expected to deliver another 25bp rate hike, but forward-guidance for monetary policy will be key focus.
  • Need greater willingness from RBNZ Governor Graeme Wheeler for another rate hike later this year.
  • According to Credit Suisse Overnight Index Swaps (OIS), 12-month expectations show the cash rate increasing by 70bp.

USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index remains at risk of a near-term topping process as it retains the descending channel from earlier this year.
  • Will need to see another close above 10,440 (78.6% Fibonacci retracement) to look for a more meaningful run at the 10,470 pivot.
  • A bearish break in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) may suggest that a lower-high is in place.
  • Interim Resistance: 10,508 (61.8% retracement) to 10,524 (38.2% retracement)
  • Interim Support: 10,354 (Oct. low) to 10,375 (50.0& retracement)
