Mr. British Pound Up after Pullback


May.19.2014

日本語の原稿はこちら

Eyes will be on Ukraine this week ahead of the elections due to take place at the weekend. Germany have warned that any actions by Russia to try and disrupt the elections will lead to more sanctions. Reuters are running an interesting story that explains that what Mr Putin is calling spontaneous separatist violence has actually been months in the planning in Moscow.

Mark Carney spoke about the UK housing market over the weekend, saying it was the biggest risk to the stability of the economy. Mr Carney said the Bank have a number of tools available, including imposing more strenuous affordability tests. His comments are well timed as Right move showed that house prices rose at their fastest pace since 2002 last month, with a monthly rise of 3.6% and an annualized increase of 8.9%.

Looking to this week, it's a very light start to the economic calendar, with nothing of note in today's European or US session. Tomorrow sees UK inflation and Thursday is the big day with BoE and FOMC meeting minutes, European PMI numbers and raft of US data.

And the pick of the day is GBP/USD, as Mr. British pound continues dancing up against Ms. USA on the daily dance floor within an upward channel above the Ichimoku cloud, with the RSI above the neutrality area and not overbought. The pair had a pullback towards the 50% Fibonacci level last week and now it seems well-directed to the upside. Our targets are at 1.704 and 1.74 in extension. A downside breakout of 1.6450 would call for 1.62 and 1.5870 in extension
