  • Final UK GDP reading is the only real data of note.
  • US weakness may allow cable to drift higher.

GBP/USD Pushing Higher Amid Broad Weakness in the Greenback

A slow start in European trade today with investors still deciding if last week’s risk-on rally was justified by changing fundamentals or just a bear market rally after months of heavy losses. The changing narrative away from inflation concerns to recession fears is weighing on the US dollar via lower US Treasury yields. While the greenback will retain some underlying strength, limiting any downside it is getting harder to see the USD pushing appreciably higher, even against the Japanese Yen. Ten-year US Treasuries currently yield 3.17% and look likely to remain within a 3.00% to 3.48% range for now.

 

British Pound Latest – GBP/USD Pushes Higher on USD Weakness

 

The British Pound remains fairly listless despite further political woes for the gaff-prone PM Boris Johnson. The PM is struggling to keep the keys to No.10 Downing Street, despite saying over the weekend that he wants to run for three terms, with a growing number of Conservative MPs fed up with the PM’s behavior. However, with no real challenger seen as yet, the PM looks likely to hold onto power for the coming months at least.

GBP/USD is trading either back above 1.2300 and is continuing its drift higher from the June 14 low at 1.1934. The daily chart shows the June 16 engulfing candle -1.1990/1.2406 – containing current price action and this is likely to remain the case in the short term. Cable is nearing in on both the 20- and 50-day simple moving averages and these may also prove difficult to break with any conviction.

British Pound Latest – GBP/USD Pushes Higher on USD Weakness
 

Retail trader data show 70.06% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.34 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 0.23% higher than yesterday and 2.84% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 0.52% lower than yesterday and 25.04% higher 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 more net-long than yesterday but less net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed GBP/USD trading bias.

    • Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart, Euro/British Pound (EURGBP) Day Chart EURGBP Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Orange wave 3 POSITION: Navy blue wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: Orange wave 4 DETAILS: Orange wave 2 appears complete; now orange wave 3 of 3 is active. Wave Cancel Invalid Level: 0.84997 The EURGBP Elliott Wave Analysis on the day chart suggests the market is currently in a trending phase. The trend's mode is impulsive, indicating strong, directional price movements. The specific wave structure being analyzed is orange wave 3, positioned within navy blue wave 3. This position indicates the market is in the third wave of a larger impulsive sequence, often characterized by substantial price movements within the wave cycle. The next higher degree direction is indicated as orange wave 4. This suggests that following the completion of the current impulsive wave (orange wave 3), the market is expected to enter a corrective phase (orange wave 4). This phase typically involves a pullback or consolidation before the market resumes its primary trend direction. Detailed analysis shows that orange wave 2 appears to be complete. This suggests that the market has finished a corrective phase and has now entered orange wave 3 of 3, which is part of the impulsive sequence. This wave is crucial as it generally indicates a strong continuation of the trend, often marked by significant price movements. A critical aspect of this analysis is the wave cancellation invalid level, set at 0.84997. This level is vital for validating the current wave structure. If the market price falls below this point, it would invalidate the current wave analysis, necessitating a re-evaluation of the wave pattern. In summary, the EURGBP day chart analysis indicates the market is in an impulsive trend phase within orange wave 3, following the completion of orange wave 2. The current focus is on orange wave 3 of 3 within this structure, suggesting strong upward momentum.
