GBP/USD Analysis

Following extreme bullishness in this pair, we made yet another multi-year high yesterday, but did not really get any kind of good pull back to an obviously supportive level for a decent long entry. As expected, it was a relatively quiet day. We did not even get back to 1.7100 which I wrote yesterday might have been supportive. This leaves the level at 1.7048 as a zone at which to look for a long trade. We might reach this today following the very high-impact USD news releases that are due shortly after the start of the New York session.

It might be that the broken upper channel trend line could now act as support but we are really too close to both it and the major news releases for this to be of any use today. There are no obvious natural obstacles ahead of us until the key psychological number of 1.7250.

Today I am only looking for a long following a pull back to 1.7048.

GBPUSD 7314

At 09:30 London time there will be a release of UK Services PMI data, which may affect the GBP. Later this will be followed by the US Non-Farm Employment Change, Unemployment Rate, Unemployment Claims, and Trade Balance data at 1pm. Then at 3pm there will be the US ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI. It is likely that from the time of the US data releases, the pair will be extremely volatile.
