British Pound (GBP) Forecast: GBP/USD Unmoved in Early Trade as U.S.  Celebrates Juneteenth

GBP/USD FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

Last week’s rollercoaster ride for FX markets is unlikely to extend through to today as the Juneteenth holiday in the U.S. should come with lower market volatility. Through the Asian session, price action on GBP/USD has been muted with no significant news/announcements from the weekend.

Earlier this morning the UK’s Treasury Minister Simon Clarke did mention that they do no expect a recession which may have given rise to cable’s marginal rise shortly after the statement.

A reminder of the upcoming events this week include inflation data for the UK on Wednesday (see calendar below) along with fed Chair Jerome Powell’s testimony. Both could influence GBP/USD as well as the current central bank (Bank of England (BoE) and Fed) narratives. A stronger inflation print may well prompt the BoE to hike by 50bps in August which they have left open for consideration (mentioned in last week’s BoE rate decision).

Later today, we do have the BoE’s Mann and Haskel speaking with discussions around last week’s rate decision and associated risks being addressed.

    • If the current challenges facing blockchain including speed, performance and so on, are effectively tackled, then blockchain adoption would have been fastened. Working towards that is Saakuru Protocol, a Layer 2 protocol designed to eliminate transaction fees, using the OP Stack for seamless application integration.  Saakuru Protocol facilitates over 1.4 million weekly transactions, which makes it among the top 20 public blockchains due to its gasless transactions and rapid block times. The Saakuru blockchain posseses a user-friendly interface and gasless transaction that make it an ideal gateway for Web3 adoption. All the dApp on Saakuru offers a secure, fee-free platform for users to access blockchain applications, and close up the gap between Web2 and Web3. In addition to some of its core features like Saakuru wallet, Saakuru Developer Suite, its native token $SKR stands at the base of everything it’s set out to achieve and already launched on Bitget with a good price trend. What’s your bias on this fast growing chain?
    • I would second this for more US options availability. 
    • Hi,   I was on the lookout for a forex foundation course and have found quite a comprehensive course, from Godlove University.    It covers everything from Risk and Money Management to Advanced Trading Strategies.   Does anyone know of a course that covers all of the above aspects and that is taught by an actual trader, such as in the case of Godlove University?   Thanks in advance.
