Key Quotes

24-hour view: “GBP traded between 1.2980 and 1.3083 yesterday, higher than our expected 1.2960/1.3065 consolidation range. While upward momentum is not strong, there is room for GBP to edge above the overnight high of 1.3083 even though a break of the next resistance at 1.3105 would come as a surprise. Support is at 1.3020 but only a break of 1.2990 would indicate that a short-term top is in place”.

Next 1-3 weeks: “There is not much to add as GBP touched a ‘fresh’ high of 1.3087 before easing off. As highlighted yesterday (11 Sep, spot at 1.3025), while it is too soon to expect a shift to a bullish phase, the current GBP strength could extend higher and test the strong 1.3170 resistance. For now, we view any up-move as part of a corrective rebound and do not expect a sustained break above 1.3170. On the downside, only a break of 1.2900 would indicate that the prevalent upward pressure has eased”.
