Sterling Pushing Higher Across a Range of Currencies

The British Pound is showing signs of strength in early trade and is ignoring the General Election (GE) backdrop which is already getting convoluted. While the incumbent PM Boris Johnson is expected to win the GE - depending on who you listen to or read - the UK will either have a hung parliament of a Conservative government with a workable majority. With nearly six weeks until the UK goes to the polls, this GE will become increasingly chaotic, sparking heightened volatility in Sterling.

The daily EUR/GBP chart shows a bearish pennant forming and the recent completion of a ‘death cross’, two well-known bearish indicators. The floor of the pennant is around 0.8775, and a break and close below here would bring lows last seen in May back into play and a possible full reversal of the March -August rally that started at 0.8472. The death-cross – when the 50-dma moves below the 200-dma – formed earlier this week and will also bear down on prices. The break lower indicates the potential for a further sell-off ahead. A range of recent daily highs act as resistance back to 0.8676, just below the 20-dma at 0.8678

EUR/GBP Daily Price Chart (January – October 31, 2019)

IG Client Sentiment shows that traders are 63% net-long EUR/GBP, a bearish contrarian bias.

Recent daily and weekly positional changes however give us a mixed trading bias.
