FXstreet.com (London) - GBP/USD is being supported in the 1.6470 area after supply just shy of the 1.65 handle met the bounce from 1.6455/60 territory.

While The Bank of England left unchanged its official rate at 0.5% and the size of its Asset Purchase Programme at GBP 375 billion as expected, GBP/USD has also seen US Jobless Claims come out pretty much as expected at 330k vs 335k consensus while Continuing Jobless Claims disappointed at 2.865m vs 2.840m consensus. From a technical stand point, analysts at Commerzbank explained that GBP/USD is attempting to recover from the 1.6342 6 month uptrend. “We believe that ultimately the trend line will break as the market recently charted a key day reversal. This coupled with the triple divergence of the daily and weekly RSI and the 13 count on the TD combo both suggest that this is a significant failure and is likely to have topped short term”.
