FSTE 100 Plagued by Weak GDP Data, Political Missteps and Rising Yields

The FTSE 100 remains vulnerable to downside risk as traders and investors eye key dates later this month. The Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey confirmed that Friday marks the last day the Bank stands ready to intervene in the bond markets in an attempt to quell reports of the possibility of an extension. As discussed earlier by Nick Cawley in his GBP update, the end to the Bank’s support sets a target for those who wish to test the BoE’s resolve. UK central bankers’ jobs have been made even tougher after August GDP figures revealed a shock decline in growth – something the new Prime Minister is looking to tackle head on.

After calming the longer-dated UK bond markets via direct purchases by the central bank, the 30-year government yield in on course to test the recent high - around 6 basis points away at the time of writing – which may see the Bank step up efforts once more.

    • Market Breakdown | WTI Oil, EURUSD, GBPNZD, EURAUDHere are the updates & outlook for multiple instruments in my watchlist.1️⃣ WTI Oil daily time frame️The market is trading in a long term bearish trend .After the last sharp bearish movement, the market is steadily recovering.Ahead, I see a major horizontal supply area.Probabilities are high, that the next bearish wave will initiate from there.2️⃣ EURUSD daily time frameAfter a breakout of a solid daily resistance, the market is preparing for its retest.Watch carefully the underlined zone and look for buying opportunities from there.3️⃣ EURAUD weekly time frameThe pair is currently approaching a weekly horizontal resistance cluster.Taking into consideration, that the pair is quite overbought, probabilities will be high to see a pullback from that4️⃣ GBPNZD daily time frameThe pair is currently retesting a broken neckline of an ascending triangle . As we discussed earlier, the trend line of a triangle and its neckline compose a contracting buy zone now.Chances will be high that the next bullish wave will initiate quite soon.For Additional confirmation use: Divergence Indicators
    • #CHFJPY: Classic Bearish Setup 🇨🇭🇯🇵   🔻CHFJPY has nicely respected a confluence zone based on a horizontal 4H resistance and a 0.5 retracement of the last bearish impulse.   The price formed a double top pattern on that and broke its neckline.   Probabilities will be high that the pair will drop lower soon. Goals: 141.172 / 140.363
