Real Time News
  • ...that is my take on the panic around tapering. I'm not advocating for expediting rate hikes, but to continuously punt easing back on stimulus by even a marginal amount only compounds the market's dependencies - increasing moral hazard.
  • 'The economy and markets are so strong that we can't reduce the $120 billion per month asset purchases. Further, if only we can continue this path for an indefinite future, the market will absorb the external risk on its own.'
  • Also, here is the schedule of FOMC meetings from now through the end of 2022. If the Fed doesn't signal taper today, next scheduled time is Nov 2nd and 'quarterly' event time is Dec 14th. Will taper be easier w/ one or two more high CPI updates? https://t.co/XFrwo24xbD
  • Here is my FOMC scenario table going into the rate decision. While a delay in the taper call seems feasible with the market wobble, there will always be wobbles before and the existential threat of a mkt tantrum. Always a hostage? https://t.co/MIDk28lQBS

Forex: GBP/USD Technical Analysis – Pound Rebound Hinted Ahead

Talking Points:

  • GBP/USD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.6548 (trend line), 1.6459 (Mar 24 low)
  • Resistance: 1.6638 (trend line), 1.6687 (23.6% Fib exp.)

The British Pound fell against the US Dollar as expected but prices may be readying a reversal upward having formed a Bullish Engulfing candle pattern. Near-term resistance is at 1.6638, marked by a falling trend line set from mid-February, with a break above that exposing the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.6687. Support is at a rising trend line set from mid-November (now at 1.6548), followed by the March 24 low at 1.6459.

Prices are too close to relevant resistance to justify a long position from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal argues against taking up the short side. We will remain flat for now.
