Cable is finding life tough at the moment with the pair stuck in a pronounced multi-month downwards trend. This week’s fresh nadir continued a series of lower lows, while the weakness of any rebound over the past few months has kept the sequence of lower highs intact. Cable needs a period of consolidation otherwise fresh lows, and an attempt at 1.3000 looks increasingly likely.

British Pound Forecast (GBPUSD) Sterling Helpless in The Face of US Dollar Dominance

Yesterday’s US dollar sell-off may be reversed later today when we get the latest US inflation report with market talk that the headline figure may be in excess of 8%. White House press secretary Jen Psaki yesterday warned of higher headline inflation with last month’s print of 7.5% expected to be broken with ease. US inflation currently stands at a 40-year high.

The daily GBPUSD chart shows a cluster of prior lows pierced earlier this week before a bout of US dollar weakness yesterday allowed cable to regain 1.3100. Today’s partial fade of that move does not instil much confidence in GBPUSD, especially with the US inflation release on tap. Cable has erased its extremely oversold reading (CCI) but needs a period of consolidation if it is to move higher. Monthly UK GDP data is released tomorrow and a strong reading may well help to underpin cable at current levels ahead of next week’s Bank of England MPC decision.

GBP/USD DAILY PRICE CHART – MARCH 10, 2022

British Pound Forecast – GBPUSD Struggles Continue as US CPI Release Nears

Retail trader data show 72.64% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.66 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 1.42% lower than yesterday and 26.04% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 1.29% higher than yesterday and 29.25% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests GBP/USD prices may continue to fall. Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed GBP/USD trading bias.

    • Of course, the CEO is important, but today the role of the media is huge.  CZ has been known since 2017, but no one knows Richard Teng now. Even if a survey was conducted, Binance's CEO would still be defined as CZ by people.  Stock market confidence comes first. This is why Binance's SAFU security fund stands out and today Binance has 193 million users.
    • “FOMO” is the abbreviation of the initials of the words Fear of Missing Out in English. The English expression Fomo means "fear of missing an opportunity". “FOMO”, which we frequently encounter in the cryptocurrency world, is a term used to avoid regret.

In 2017, a recent example of FOMO, investors bought cryptocurrencies at high prices and incurred losses. Those who bought crypto currencies in large amounts experienced losses. The Fomo effect also has an individual nature. Individuals may experience the fomo effect for their personal investments. Fomo is not just a mass urge. FOMO occurs as emotional behavior rather than rational thoughts. One of the simplest examples is that it quickly pushes investors to the thought that motivates the person, such as "those who have cryptocurrency live a luxurious life." FOMO, which pushes towards irrational behavior, psychologically causes rapid action. In order to avoid losses, investments are made based on concrete information and graphics, not on attractive stocks. How to Deal with the Feeling of Fomo? People who make their own plans and research the markets they will enter in advance become conscious and follow the markets. Improving themselves, exploring hobbies, and becoming calm will reduce the effects of fomo. Balancing the fomo causes you to buy cryptocurrencies, not to make hasty decisions, and to perceive what is happening around you as it is. Cryptocurrency buyers need to be able to make rational decisions. Investments may take shape with FOMO disease. While trying to take advantage of the opportunities offered by other investors, you may encounter large losses. Decisions made with emotional motivation lie behind untimely investments. Fear of Missing Out on High Earnings It is the feeling felt by investors who rush to purchase the asset for fear of missing a profit opportunity.  When there are strong emotions, too many people have FOMO, which can cause parabolic price movements. We should mention that crypto money fomo causes great losses.  Investors competing for seats and switching from one asset to another often signals that the fomo effect is increasing. Extreme market conditions can change the general rules of the market. Buying cryptocurrencies based solely on increasing prices without doing research, reading charts, or technical analysis is an indication that we are caught up in FOMO.
