GBP/USD, FTSE 100 and GBP/NZD Outlooks - UK Weekly Webinar

GBP/USD, FTSE 100 and GBP/NZD Outlooks - UK Weekly Webinar

Nick Cawley, Strategist

GBP/USD, GBP/NZD and FTSE 100 Prices, Charts and Analysis:

  • Pennant formation in cable continues to play out.
  • FTSE 100 remains rangebound.
  • GBPNZD above 2.00 and the 200-dma.

A quiet start to the week with little in the way to guide markets. This week the economic calendar is quiet apart from the resumption of EU/UK trade on Tuesday, FOMC minutes on Wednesday and the latest PMIs on Friday. For all market-moving data releases and events see the DailyFX Economic Calendar

GBP/USD remains underpinned and continues to form a basic bullish pennant pattern. As we near the apex of this formation, the chances of an upside breakout grow.

The FTSE 100 remains stuck in a range and will need a decent driver to break either way. Today’s trading range is limited and the UK big board will wait to see if anything comes out of the EU/UK trade talks or if Sterling makes a move. Price action remains either side of both the 20- and 50-day moving averages.

GBP/NZD continues to press higher and has now broken and opened above the 200-day moving average and the psychological 2.00 level. If the 200-dma remains supportive, the pair will likely consolidate before continuing to edge higher.
