GBP/USD, EUR/GBP and FTSE 100 Latest - UK Market Webinar

GBP/USD, EUR/GBP and FTSE 100 Latest - UK Market Webinar

Nick Cawley, Strategist

GBP/USD, EURGBP and FTSE 100 – Prices, Charts and Analysis:

  • EU/UK trade talks may weigh on the British Pound is the status-quo remains.
  • US-China relations continue to deteriorate leaving risk assets exposed.

A week full of risk events and important data releases will increase market volatility across a range of assets, especially when viewed against a turbulent and fractious political and economic backdrop. Three central bank policy meetings – RBA, BoC and ECB – and US non-farm payrolls will compete for headlines with ongoing US-China headlines and EU-UK trade talks. Risk markets are starting to look fully priced and this could weigh on Sterling and the FTSE 100.

GBP/USD continues to make a short-term pattern of higher lows and higher highs but last week’s run in the pair was primarily due to weakness in the US dollar ahead of month-end portfolio rebalancing. Resistance around the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 1.2517 and support likely around 50% Fib retracement at 1.2306. EU-UK trade talk headlines need to be watched closely.

FTSE 100 is facing resistance from another Fibonacci level as well as the bottom of the gap made between March 6 and March 9 between 6,233 and 6,239. A cluster of recent lows between 6,000 and 6,036 and the 20-dma at 6,006 provide the first area of support.
