British Pound (GBP) Forecast: UK GDP Paints Supportive Picture, GBP Bid

Jul 13, 2022 | DailyFX
Warren Venketas, Analyst


  • Strong UK GDP supports GBP.
  • Political uncertainty takes a back seat for now.
  • Bullish divergence on daily cable chart.


The pound shook off yesterday’s push lower after better than expected GDP data was released this morning (see economic calendar below). Industrial and manufacturing production for May added to the positive sentiments around the UK economy temporarily leaving the political shenanigans aside. Currently, money markets are pricing in a 66% chance of a 50bps rate hike in August by the Bank of England (BoE) and with the recent GDP data looks to be cementing its place come August. The dovish re-pricing has hurt the pound of recent but we could be seeing a potential turnaround as the dollar hits extreme levels.

Focus now shifts to U.S. inflation later today which may trigger a pullback by GBP bulls should actual data fall short of expectations.

    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
