GBP/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • GBP/USD extends the decline from earlier this week as U.K. Industrial & Manufacturing unexpectedly contracts in November; with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) pushing deeper into oversold territory, downside targets remain in focus with the next region of interest coming in around 1.4290 (78.6% retracement) to 1.4310 (61.8% expansion).
  • Even though the Bank of England (BoE) interest rate decision is likely to reveal another 8-1 split within the central bank, the fresh comments may halt the near-term selloff in the sterling should the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) show concerns surrounding the marked decline in the exchange rate.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long GBP/USD since November 19, but the ratio appears to be working its way back towards recent extremes as it climbs to +2.86, with 74% of traders now long.


AUD/USD Daily Chart
  • AUD/USD appears to have made a failed attempt to test the September low (0.6906) as the pair holds within the previous day’s range, while the RSI holds above oversold territory.
  • However, as China – Australia’s largest trading partner – is anticipated to show a narrowing trade surplus in November, the weakening outlook for global trade may dampen the appeal of the Australian dollar as it puts increased pressure on the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) to further insulate the real economy.
  • Will watch former support around 0.7080 (38.2% expansion) to 0.7090 (78.6% retracement) for new resistance, with the next downside targets coming in around 0.6830 (161.8% expansion) to 0.6860 (61.8% expansion).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Despite the mixed batch of data coming out of the U.S. economy, the USDOLLAR may extend the advance from earlier this month and looks poised for another leg higher as it breaks out of the range carried over from November; will keep a close eye on the RSI as it approaches overbought territory.
  • More of the same from the Fed’s Beige Book may spur a limited market reaction as the U.S. economy approaches full employment, but greater concerns surrounding the inflation outlook may dampen the appeal of the dollar as it drags on interest rate expectations.
  • Topside targets around 12,273 (161.8% expansion) to 12,296 (100% expansion) are on the radar as the dollar appears to be coiling for a move higher.
