GBP/USD Analysis

Yesterday was an extremely quiet day with a very narrow range, totalling less than 40 pips. Surprisingly, such narrow range days have not been that uncommon recently, as this pair tends to be very news-driven lately.

The dull action means that there is little new to analyse. Perhaps all we can take away from this is a hint that the price does not want to move up any further yet. I think we will see another return to the 1.7050 before we go much further up. What could make this really interesting is that the 1.7050 area is becoming confluent with a very long-term bullish trend line, so if when the price returns there the confluence is present, that should make for a good high-probability long trade.

GBPUSD 71714

There are no high-impact data releases due today concerning the GBP, although there are concerning the USD which might well have some impact upon this pair. At 1:30pm London time London time there will be a release of US Building Permits and Unemployment Claims data followed later by the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index at 3pm. It is likely to be quiet before the New York session begins.
