GBP/USD: 144 MA acting as resistance
Information is not investment advice
The 144 Moving Average is acting as resistance, so there're bearish patterns such a 'Shooting Star' and an 'Engulfing', which both have been confirmed. Thus, we should watch the nearest support at 1.2938 as the next target. If a pullback from this level happens next, there'll be a moment to have a local upward correction towards the previously tested resistance at 1.3119.
This week, there are a few high-probability trade ideas I'd like to recommend to you. Trading these setups, be sure to implement a proper risk management approach.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
