GBP: the hangover
Information is not investment advice
Yesterday, the GBP was boosted by the positive flow of the Brexit talks. Today, it will have to – at least – stay at the new positions or cede them back.
Against the USD, it bounced upwards from the support of 1.27 and crossed the 50-MA to trade under 1.29 now. The 100-MA caps the upside at 1.2880 for it – if we don’t see it cross that one as well, the GBP will like go back to where it came from – 1.27.
Against the EUR, the price went below the strategic support of 0.91 to touch 0.9060. However, it already started bouncing upwards from this bottom which is reinforced by the 50-MA. So pay close attention to the performance of the GBP now – if there is no further progress in the positive direction for the Brexit, the GBP will not only get back to previous trend but probably lose even more ground.
