GBP/USD has a chance
Information is not investment advice
The fate of the British pound is very uncertain because of the Brexit question. So far, Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains determined to take the UK out of the European Union no matter what, although there are reports that he may soften his stance. The technical setup for GBP/USD allows expecting a rebound. Last week the pair tested the long-term lows in the 1.1960 area but then recovered forming a candlestick with a long lower wick on the W1. A similar situation happened at the end of 2018 and was followed by a significant recovery. To get to higher levels this time, GBP/USD will have to rise above 1.2400. The first target will be at 1.25 (near the declining 100-day MA). A bigger relief will open the way up to 1.2700.
As for the downside, GBP/USD has recently found support at 1.2285 (50-day MA, late August highs). In the alternative scenario, the decline below this level will bring the pair down to 1.21.
Last year was tough for the Japanese yen. USDJPY gained more than 30% over 2022, striking above 150 in October. While anticipation of slower Fed rate hikes pulled the pair below the 130 level at the start of 2023, the speculations over the destiny of BOJ’s yield control policy grabbed the attention of the Japanese assets in the middle of January. What lies ahead for traders of the Japanese yen?
