David Song, Strategist

GBP/USD

GBP/USD Benefits From BoE Policy Outlook- Waiting for SSI to Flip
  • GBP/USD climbs to a fresh session high of 1.6169 as Bank of England (BoE) Governor Mark Carney sees period approaching to start normalizing monetary policy.
  • Even though the BoE sticks to its current path for monetary policy, looks as though Martin Weale and Ian McCafferty will remain as the minority as David Miles sees ‘no immediate urgency’ to raise the benchmark interest rate.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) continues to narrow as the ratio now stands at +1.38, but need to see a more material shift in positioning to favor a bullish outlook for the GBP/USD as bearish formations remain in play.

AUD/USD

GBP/USD Benefits From BoE Policy Outlook- Waiting for SSI to Flip
  • AUD/USD appears to be catching near-term support around the 0.9100 pivot to 0.9110 (23.6% retracement), but downside targets remain favored as Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains bearish trend.
  • RSI failure to break below 30 & push into oversold territory may warn of near-term correction; will look for a lower-high to be carved on a rebound.
  • Key downside region to watch will be around 0.9070 (38.2% retracement) to 0.980 (50.0% retracement).
