GBP to Face BoE Governor Carney- Gold Outlook Remains Bearish
  • GBP/USD gaps to a fresh monthly low (1.6102) as polls show greater risk of Scotland leaving the U.K.; Relative Strength Index (RSI) approaching lowest level since September 2008.
  • BoE Governor Mark Carney scheduled to speak tomorrow at 10:45 GMT; will be watching former support zones for new resistance: 1.6250, 1.6280-1.6300 and 1.6360-90.
  • Even though the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) has narrowed to +1.79, appears as though short positions have been hit following the opening weekly gap to the downside; will look for a push back above +2.00 to favor a more bearish outlook.


GBP to Face BoE Governor Carney- Gold Outlook Remains Bearish
  • Gold appears to be getting ready for another decline as it struggles to push back around $1,270-$1,2706 while RSI retains bearish momentum.
  • Market participants still appear to be treating bullion more so as a commodity rather than a currency as it moves in tandem with Silver prices.
  • Need close below $1,260 (61.8% retracement) to look for a more meaningful run at $1,250, which will be followed by $1,231-$1,234.
