    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD regain some losses while EUR/GBP comes off two-year high EUR/USD and GBP/USD regain some losses while EUR/GBP comes off two-year high as the Bank of England pledges to buy £65 billion worth of bonds to calm financial markets and avert a financial crisis.

Moving away from its previous quantitative tightening policy, the BoE said on Wednesday that it was setting aside £65 billion to buy bonds until mid-October to ease pressure on pension funds and insurance companies which led to a fall in the US dollar and benefitted EUR/USD. EUR/USD thus recovered from fresh 20-year lows at $0.9536, made slightly below key support seen between the June 2000 and January 2001 highs and the September 2002 low at $0.9698 to $0.9593, and managed to heave itself back up to $0.975 before coming off again Thursday morning. Below $0.9536 lies the September 2001 high at $0.9331. Minor resistance above $0.975 can be found between the one-month downtrend line and the 6 September low at $0.986 to $0.9865.

It stated 'were dysfunction in this [government bond] market to continue or worsen, there would be a material risk to UK financial stability. This would lead to an unwarranted tightening of financing conditions and a reduction of the flow of credit to the real economy.' The BoE went on to say 'in line with its financial stability objective, the Bank of England stands ready to restore market functioning and reduce any risks from contagion to credit conditions for UK households and businesses' which calmed the EUR/GBP exchange rate. Following the UK central bank’s intervention, EUR/GBP slid back below the minor psychological £0.9 mark and briefly traded as low as £0.8853 before consolidating around the £0.895 level. Minor resistance can now be spotted at Wednesday’s £0.9065 high and support below £0.8853 at the 19 September high at £0.8787.

GBP/USD currently trades in technical no man’s land between the $1.035 record low and the minor psychological $1.1 level. Above it minor technical resistance can only be spotted between the 7 and 16 September lows at $1.1351 to $1.1406 while immediate support can be found at Wednesday’s $1.0541 low.

    • The S&P 500 managed to end a six-day slide – its worst since the height of the 2020 pandemic – before the index marked another high profile technical break. Seemingly, all it took was a massive stimulus aimed at stabilizing a financial crisis in the UK. But is that the backdrop for a broader recovery?
