  • GBP/USD covers the gap as it rebounds from channel support; need the Relative Strength Index (RSI) to come back from overbought territory to favor a larger correction.
  • Despite the dissent within the Bank of England (BoE), we may not see a larger rift at the September 4 meeting as Ben Broadbent retains a rather dovish tone for monetary policy.
  • Nevertheless, Credit Suisse Overnight Index Swaps (OIS) show market participants are pricing a 50bp rise in the benchmark interest rate over the next 12-months.

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index gaps higher as the Fed Economic Symposium spurs speculation for a rate hike sooner rather than later.
