GBPUSD, “Great Britain Pound vs US Dollar”

As we can see in the daily chart, there was a divergence on MACD, which made the pair reverse downwards after reaching 61.8% fibo. GBPUSD got very close to the support at 38.2% fibo (1.2883), but couldn’t test it. The current growth may be considered as a correction. However, taking into account a divergence on MACD, we may assume that the next descending impulse may break the support. Still, we shouldn’t exclude an opposite scenario: the instrument may start another rising wave towards 76.0% fibo at 1.3794.

However, right now the price is falling to break the low at 1.2904. if it succeeds, the instrument may continue its mid-term decline towards 50.0% and 61.8% fibo at 1.2856 and 1.2700 respectively.

EURUSD was dropped. Overview for 08.01.2020

08.01.2020

On Wednesday afternoon, EURUSD continues the decline it started yesterday. The current quote for the instrument is 1.1150.

Investors like the USD right now and one of the reasons for that is good American numbers published yesterday. For example, the ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI increased up to 55.0 points in December after being 53.9 points the month before and against the expected reading of 54.5 points.

The components of the report show that the Business Activity improved from 51.6 points to 57.2 points, while two other items dropped a bit: the New Orders decreased from 57.1 points to 54.9 points and the Employment – from 55.5 points to 55.2 points.

However, broadly speaking the positive comes from changes in global tariffs. At the same time, market players didn’t pay any attention to the Factory Orders, which lost 0.7% m/m in November after adding 0.2% m/m in the previous month. Geopolitical pressure on the USD is getting weaker. After the Iranian major general Qasem Soleimani was killed in a targeted U.S. drone strike, the American market was very worrying about the escalation in the US-Iranian conflict, but right now the political intensity is reducing. However, it is important to remember that the current situation is as “fragile” as before: it didn’t have any continuations, but even theoretical scenario of what may happen are very frightening.

AUDUSD, “Australian Dollar vs US Dollar”

AUDUSD is trading at 0.7003; the instrument is moving above Ichimoku Cloud, thus indicating an ascending tendency. The markets could indicate that the price may test the cloud’s upside border at 0.6990 and then resume moving upwards to reach 0.7055. Another signal to confirm further ascending movement is the price’s rebounding from the rising channel’s downside border. However, the scenario that implies further growth may be canceled if the price breaks the cloud’s downside border and fixes below 0.6940. In this case, the pair may continue falling towards 0.6870.

The Pound recovered and is ready to embrace a landmark year. Overview for 31.12.2019

31.12.2019

GBPUSD reached stability at the end of the year but 2020 is anticipated to be as volatile as 2019.

By the end of 2019, the British Pound managed to pull itself out of a dive but the upcoming year is very unlikely to be easy for the British currency.

As early as at the beginning of January, the British Parliament will face a difficult task to ratify the agreement with the European Union. The Brexit deadline is January 31st, 2020 and if the exiting procedure fails to feature a somewhat proper trade agreement, the national currency will certainly suffer from stress.

The Bank of England is not expected to introduce any significant changes to its monetary policy in 2020, at least in the first six months. Most likely, the British regulator will continue watching the Brexit and talks with the European Union relating to the second phase of the exiting procedure.

The first BoE meeting is scheduled for January 31st, 2020. It’s not clear whether it is a coincidence or not, but looks pretty symbolical.

Moreover, in January the BoE Governor Mark Carney will be replaced by Andrew Bailey, the Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Conduct Authority. Basically, Bailey is not expected to significantly change the monetary policy of the British regulator, at least in winter. The future remains to be seen.

Everything that is going to have a significant influence on the British currency is the Brexit and the Brexit alone. In this light, macroeconomic reports to be published by the United Kingdom go on the back burner. So, if the exiting procedure goes off without a hitch, the Pound will remain standing.
