What To Expect From GBP Today

What To Expect From GBP Today

2023-11-10 • Updated

The Pound exhibited a mixed performance due to limited fresh UK data, leaving it susceptible to external influences. Bank of England (BoE) policymakers, including Governor Andrew Bailey and Chief Economist Huw Pill, adopted a more hawkish stance, suggesting a 'higher for longer' narrative on interest rates. However, the Pound faced constraints in its upside potential as a cautious market sentiment hindered its rise against safer currencies. Lingering concerns about the UK economy's health further dampened the Pound's movements, despite BoE's monetary policy assertions. The upcoming GDP reports today, with a forecasted decline of 0.1% in the third quarter, could intensify fears of a UK recession, potentially leading to substantial selling pressure for GBP.

GBPJPY - H4 Timeframe


GBPJPY is currently trading within the Pivot zone on the Daily timeframe and has been rejected off the zone twice recently. On the 4-Hour timeframe, we see that price has created a supply zone inside the higher time frame Pivot zone, which serves as an additional confluence for entry. As a result of this confluence, I will wait until price reaches the 4-Hour supply zone before seeking to short GBPJPY.

Analyst’s Expectations: 

Direction: Bearish

Target: 183.665

Invalidation: 186.006

GBPUSD - H4 Timeframe


GBPUSD on the 4-Hour time frame is currently resting on a support trendline, and a rally-base-rally demand zone. It is also important to note the bullish array of the moving averages. All these confluences tend to point in favour of a bullish reaction from the highlighted demand zone.

Analyst’s Expectations: 

Direction: Bearish

Target: 1.22845

Invalidation: 1.21813

GBPAUD - H4 Timeframe


On the 4-Hour chart of GBPAUD, we can see that price has just broken a previous high, and seems to be heading for the highlighted high in the attached chart. For the time being, I do not see sufficient reasons to take a short entry, so I will sit still until price reaches the supply zone, and there we can watch for a reaction that confirms the intention of price to go lower.

Analyst’s Expectations: 

Direction: Bearish

Target: 1.91006

Invalidation: 1.92708

XAUUSD: Will Gold Continue to Rally?

Last week I gave a trade idea on XAUUSD with a target around the $2,020 price line. At the time of writing, XAUUSD already exceeded the target and I’m sure that would leave a lot of people wondering what to expect next.
