GBP Analysis and Talking Points

  • GBPUSD| 1.31 Break Needed to Fuel Further Upside
  • EURGBP | Risk of Wider Pullback, Support at 0.8550

See the DailyFXQ2 FX forecast to learn what will drive the currency throughout the quarter.

GBPUSD | 1.31 Break Needed to Fuel Further Upside

While the upside in the GBP has persisted, further gains has struggled at the 1.31 handle, where the 50DMA resides (1.3106). Momentum indicators are slightly bullish; however, this has eased amid the failure to make a decisive break above 1.31. Eyes will be on the BoE quarterly inflation report, in which a hawkish hold could fuel further gains in the Pound (full story). On the downside, near-term support sits at 1.3030, while a drop below exposes a move towards 1.2980 (100DMA).

EURGBP | Risk of Wider Pullback, Support at 0.8550

Yesterday saw the cross close below its 50DMA (0.86), which in turn raises the risk of a wider pullback in EURGBP, momentum indicators (measured by DMI’s) are tilted to downside on both the short-term and longer-term studies. As such, eyes are on for a move towards 0.8550 after dropping to a fresh 4-week low of 0.8570. Any move higher, could struggle at the 0.86 handle.
