GBP/USD Forecast Dec. 1-5

The British pound flexed some muscle but couldn’t consolidate the gains and showed little change on the week. The pair closed at 1.5632. This week’s key events are the PMI releases and the Autumn Forecast Statement. Here is an outlook on the major events moving the pound and an updated technical analysis for GBP/USD.

British GDP posted a respectable gain of 0.7% in Q3, matching the forecast. However, this was shy of the 0.9% gain recorded in Q2. The weaker reading reflects softer data across the UK economy in the third quarter. Earlier in the week, BoE Governor Mark Carney testified before Parliament’s Treasury Committee on Tuesday, and his remarks echoed the dovish Inflation Report which showed inflation is weakening. The large batch of US data before Thanksgiving was largely disappointing: durable goods orders were mixed, unemployment claims missed the estimate, and housing numbers softened. However, the dollar managed to hold its own despite the weak numbers.
