GBP/USD catching a bounce; expect consolidation

By FXstreet.com | July 18, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (Guatemala) - GBP/USD is trading at 1.7061, down -0.23% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.7119 and low at 1.7036.



GBP/USD is catching a bounce after a deep continuation of a move to the downside. The Market Strategy Team at UOB Group notd that although GBP spiked to a high of 1.7192 earlier this week they continue to expect a corrective pullback targeting a move towards 1.6995/1.7010. "Patchy short-term momentum may lead to a coupe of days of sideway trading but GBP should eventually move towards 1.6995/1.7015. Strong resistant is at 1.7155/60 but a only break above 1.7200 would indicate that our bearish view is wrong”. From a longer-term, they will consider any down-move as corrective in nature and expect GBP to resume its recent uptrend at a later stage.
