GBPUSD Comments:

  • Anna Coulling:

    The recent decline in cable now appears to be slowing as the pair find some support at the 1.50 price point and begin to rebuild. The main congestion above is now from 1.5155 through to 1.5274 but a clearance here should open the way to some bullish momentum provided we see some positive volume and market activity.

  • Dr. S. Sivaraman:

    Last week of the month - the market is expected to show aggressive monthly trend reversal move

  • Ilian Yotov:

    With the UK economy avoiding a triple-dip recession and the Bank of England on the QE sideline. the GBP could attract bids as an alternative to currencies whose central banks are stepping up their easing efforts.

  • Nady Laymoud:

    Upwards corrective movement is expected over the next week within wave a pink within wave 2 blue in a zigzag structure. Wave 2 blue is expected to unfold over the course of the next 2 to 3 weeks and following the completion of wave 2 blue wave 3 blue is expected to unfold in a rapid and swift movement towards the downside.

  • Yohay Elam:

    The back wind for the pound is gone after weak inflation and retail sales numbers. Nevertheless. it could enjoy a small recovery.
