GBP/USD | Beware of Brexit Induced Volatility

Momentum indicators on the daily time frame remain tilted to the downside, however, beware of Brexit induced volatility, which will leave the pair vulnerable to sudden spikes. The pair has found support this morning from the 50DMA situated at 1.2253, however, scepticism over Boris Johnson’s Brexit plan could see this level tested once more and opening the door for a move towards the 1.22 handle. That said, on topside the weekly high (1.2346) has so far capped upside in the pair this week.

EUR/GBP | Lacking Clear Directional Bias Since 200DMA Bounce

EUR/GBP has continued to edge higher, reclaiming the 0.8900 handle following the bounce back from the 200DMA (0.8832). However, with that said, momentum indicators are somewhat mixed thus lacking a clear directional bias, which has also been reaffirmed by the dip in trend signals. On the topside, resistance is situated at 0.8969, which marks the 100DMA. As a reminder, given the heightened headline risk surrounding Brexit with Boris Johnson set to unveil his Brexit plans at the Conservative party conference, EUR/GBP is likely to experience a bout of volatility, as such, a directional bias may be found after the event.
