GBP/USD Pushed Lower by Ongoing US Dollar Strength

Cable is drifting lower in early trade with US dollar strength pushing the pair back down to the 1.2340 level, roughly the mid-point of this week’s trading range. Tuesday’s indecision candle – 1.2240-1.2475 – has set the marker for the week and is likely to hold going into the weekend. The British Pound has had a positive week against other currencies, including the New Zealand and Canadian dollar, while EUR/GBP is now testing important support.

FTSE 100 Holding Support as Trading Range Narrows

The FTSE 100 is currently forming a short-term bullish flag and the base around 5,340 needs to hold today to give the pattern further credibility. Thursday’s 5,555 high print is the initial upside target. In-between the two, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 5,467 may provide support if closed above.
