September 9, 2016

GBPUSD

Yesterday the Bank of England announced the Inflation Report, stating that the BoE will implement further QE when it is necessary. The performance of the UK economy after the Brexit vote so far has been a bit better-than-expected. Yet we need more subsequent data to have a clearer picture.

The current price is near the previous high on 14-15 July. 1.3470 is a significant resistance level. The current price action is oscillating in the range between 1.3400 and 1.3300.
The daily Stochastic Oscillator is above 70, suggesting a retracement.

The resistance level is at 1.3370, followed by 1.3400 and 1.3470.
The support line is at 1.3300, followed by 1.3270 and 1.3230.

The Dollar Index (DXY)

The Fed Beige Book was announced yesterday. It stated that although the labour market is tight and wage level is rising, this was not helping lift inflation. In aggregate, the US economy is expected to grow at a moderate pace in the following months.

The price is trading below the 8 and 20 EMAs, suggesting upside selling pressure.

The newly formed resistance level is at 94.73, followed by 95.00, 95.20 and 95.40.
