Sterling Weekly Technical Outlook: Selling Off Into Support

Sterling Weekly Technical Outlook: Selling Off Into Support

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Sterling FX-Pairs Technical Analysis

  • GBPUSD pulling back into a cluster of support levels.
  • EURGBP upside remains capped

You can download for free ourQ1 2019 Trading Forecasts for a wide range of Currencies and Commodities, including GBPUSD and EURGBP with our fundamental and medium-term term technical outlook.

A break of Fibonacci retracement at 1.2894 at the start of the week provided Sterling with momentum to move higher against the US dollar, taking out the 200-day moving average during the move. A positive Brexit sentiment, and better-than-expected jobs and wages data help provide a fundamental boost for the British Pound. The mid-week turnaround has been equally as sharp, and the pair now approach a cluster of support levels that should keep GBPUSD from falling further. The 20-day moving average at 1.2965 guards the 200-day moving average around 1.2940 and the 50-day ma at 1.2910 before 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.2894 comes into play. To the upside, the recent February high at 1.3112 before 38.25 Fib at 1.3177 and the January 2019 high print at 1.3217.
