GBP/USD & EUR/GBP Prices: Reinforcing Recent Trading Ranges - Webinar

GBP/USD & EUR/GBP Prices: Reinforcing Recent Trading Ranges - Webinar

Nick Cawley, Strategist

UK Data and Sterling (GBP) Price, News and Analysis

  • The first look at Q4 UK GDP may disappoint Sterling bulls.
  • Coronavirus news flow and German GDP at the end of the week need to be watched carefully.

GBP/USD Price Bouncing Off Recent Lows

A tepid bounce in GBP/USD today and back above 1.2900, as UK traders look ahead to Tuesday’s data with industrial and manufacturing production and Q4 GDP all released at 09:30GMT. It should be noted that the data is backward looking and for December and does not fully take in any post-general election ‘Boris-bounce’. GBP/USD has been on the back foot for most of the year, weighed down by a combination of post-Brexit trade fears and a resurgent US dollar. The 1.2900 – 1.3225 trading band is just about holding for now and will likely need a strong stimulus to shift out of this range permanently.

GBPUSD price chart

EUR/GBP also remains rangebound and price action may come under selling pressure if the Euro-Zone/German GDP numbers at the end of the week fail to match expectations. This year’s double-top just under 0.8600 should remain intact while support around the 0.8385 area may come pressure on Friday if data disappoints.
