GBP/USD is under pressure
Information is not investment advice
GBP/USD formed a lower high just above 1.30 (psychological level, 50-week MA). It’s now hovering at the 200-day MA in the 1.2955 area. Daily Awesome Oscillator is at the negative territory. On H4, the 50-period MA is about to decline below the 200-period MA confirming that the market has topped in the near term. As long as the pound is trading below 1.2985, bears will dominate the market.
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.
