GBP/USD Analysis

The USD is strong across the board and was strengthened even further by the bullish content of the FOMC minutes that were released yesterday late during the New York session.

Technically, yesterday we printed new flipped support to resistance close to today’s GMT R1 pivot at 1.6655, so this will be a great and realistic level at which to look for a short trade today.

Below us there is a key support level at 1.6550 that is quite likely to be a good level at which to take a conservative long trade.

GBPUSD 82114

There are high-impact data releases due today concerning both the GBP and the USD. At 9:30am London time there will be U.K. Retail Sales data. At 1:30pm there will be U.S. Unemployment Claims data, followed by the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index at 3pm, both of which are likely to affect the USD. Therefore today this pair is likely to be quite active.
