GBP/USD vs. UK GDP

The biggest event for the pound ahead in the week will be the release of the advanced GDP figures for the second quarter. Prior surveys point to an annual expansion of 1.4% and 0.6% inter-quarter. Camilla Sutton, Strategist at Scotiabank, remarks the short-term bullish stance on the pair, adding, “nearing 1.5394, the 61.8% Fibo retracement level of the recent decline. GBP has already broken both the 50 and 100 day MA’s (1.5288 and 1.5272, respectively), while the 200-day MA lies at 1.5581. Momentum and trend indicators are bullish”.
