Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Despite the marked slowdown in the U.K.’s Consumer Price Index (CPI), GBP/USD appears to be breaking out of the range-bound price action as the bullish momentum in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) gathers pace; waiting for a close above 1.5720-30 for conviction/confirmation.
  • Bank of England (BoE) sees lower energy prices boosting economic activity, but the meeting minutes may continue to reveal a 7-2 split as the majority remains in no rush to normalize monetary policy.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long GBP/USD since October 28, with the ratio currently holding at +1.32.

NZD/USD

NZD/USD Daily Chart
  • NZD/USD may continue to operate within the downward trending channel amid the ongoing series of lower-highs; will continue to favor downside targets with the bearish RSI momentum in play.
  • New Zealand’s 3Q Current Account Balance may dampen the appeal of kiwi as report is expected to show the largest deficit since 2008.
  • Will keep a close eye on the monthly as it lines up with the Fibonacci overlap around 0.7600-20, with the next downside region of interest coming in at 0.7520 (61.8% expansion).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0
