GBP/USD: Room For Some Consolidation; Downside Likely Limited To 1.3250 – ING


The pound continued suffering on unimpressive data and also on concerns regarding Brexit negotiations. What’s next? Here is the view from ING.

Here is their view, courtesy of eFXdata:

ING Research discusses GBP/USD outlook and adopts a neutral bias, expects the pair downside to be limited around 1.3250 next week.

“UK political risks continue to linger in the background – as Brexit talks reach a crucial juncture. Headlines may keep GBP/USD contained, though we expect some consolidation in the 1.33-1.34 area for now,” ING argues.

The week ahead will see some second-tier data releases, so keep an eye on – consumer confidence (Wednesday), money and credit data (Thursday) and the May manufacturing PMI reading (Friday),” ING adds.
