Pound Sterling Price News and Forecast: GBP/USD bull run pauses ahead of FOMC meeting


GBP/USD Price Analysis: Rises back above the 1.2200 mark, supported by 50-DMA

GBP/USD's bull run stalls at a long-ended descending trendline originating from the 1.3768 mark on a daily timeframe. This bullish surge is driven by broad-based US Dollar weakness amid falling US Treasury yields. Additionally, increasing expectations for the Bank of England (BoE) to pause at their upcoming meeting also support the bullish momentum for Cable.

With the bullish bias intact, a convincing break above the trendline could propel the pair toward the twice-tested 2023 high. Downside declines are likely to be limited by the 50-Day Moving Average (DMA), situated below the previous day's low at around the 1.2146 level. A convincing break below this level would likely lead the pair to confront the 21-DMA at the 1.2016 level. Read more...

GBP/USD resists welcoming bears above 1.2200, UK inflation, Brexit vote and Fed eyed

The Cable pair’s latest losses could be linked to the improvement in the market’s sentiment and a rebound in the US Treasury bond yields that allowed the US Dollar to pro recent south-run at the five-week low. Read more...
