  • I am a gold bull as I have been for a while. I'm dubious on this current breakout holding, however, for a few reasons. 1) first test above a big zone in a long time 2) $USD is near a huge spot of support (below) 3) It's a Monday and $Gold is already stretched https://t.co/kVtOsQ8iyx https://t.co/ueeWs6XcN2

GBPUSD Weakness Continues

Cable has just traded at the lowest level since April 2017 as sellers take complete control of the market. In slightly holiday-thinned conditions, GBPUSD fell ahead of today’s UK jobs and wages data, steadied post-release and then fell further with sellers off stop losses on the way down.

We noted on Monday that Sterling looked weak and this is now playing out against a range of currencies with losses ranging between 0.50% and 0.90%

Sterling – GBPUSD Capped as UK Data, Tory Leadership Vote Loom

IG Client Sentiment data paints a mixed picture despite Sterling traders being 79.9% net-long of GBPUSD, a negative contrarian bias. Recent daily and weekly positional changes however give us a stronger bearish GBPUSD trading bias.

The daily chart shows the current sell-off and now the pair will be looking at potential support levels from over two years ago. The April 2017 low at 1.2360 is the next target ahead of 1.2108, the March 2017 low, before the January 2017 low around 1.1983 comes into view. To the upside, 1.2600 may be hard to pierce in the current environment.
