Rich Dvorak, Analyst

  • GBP implied volatility readings have ticked higher over recent trading sessions
  • The British Pound could also eye an update to UK PMI data as well as upcoming Brexit talks

BRITISH POUND IN FOCUS WITH UK PMI DATA & BOE MONETARY POLICY UPDATE ON DECK

GBP Price Chart UK Economic Calendar Pound Sterling Outlook

Chart Source: DailyFX Economic Calendar

Pound Sterling bulls have started to pull back from a multi-month high after staging a remarkable rally throughout July. In fact, the British Pound Currency Index, a basket of major currency pairs helping gauge broader GBP performance, posted a solid 5.5% gain last month, but GBP price action is down almost a full percentage point on balance since its July 31 swing high.

Perhaps a recent rise in uncertainty surrounding this week’s release of leading UK economic data, like Markit PMIs, in addition to the expected BoE decision and inflation report, could explain the latest stretch of Pound Sterling sluggishness.

This is suggested by one-week implied volatility readings taken for GBP/USD, GBP/JPY and EUR/GBP as of last Friday’s close, which have churned higher over preceding sessions and now perched notably above their respective 20-day moving averages. Statistically speaking, an options-implied trading range of technical support and resistance is estimated to contain spot price action 68% of the time for the given duration.
