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.
NZD/CAD has reached a 200-week MA (0.8950) and formed a “shooting star” candlestick on the D1. On the H4, we see a lower high.
XAU/USD has moved this week in line with its short-term uptrend and the overall long-term uptrend reaching $1 865.
The number of Americans applying for initial unemployment benefits came in at a larger-than-forecast 870,000 last week, signaling that the recovery in the labor market is losing momentum as the coronavirus pandemic lingers and layoffs continue apace.
The GBP is likely to move upward until it reaches the resistance of 1.2795.
