  • GBP/USD got a 70-pip boost as US President Donald Trump said in an interview on CNBC that he doesn’t agree with interest rate hikes. CME Group FedWatch Tool’s December rate hike odds ease to 53% after Trump comments.
  • GBP/USD has now reclaimed the 1.3000 figure and found resistance just at the 1.3049 level.
  • While this can be seen as a selling opportunity the current momentum has switched momentarily to neutral as GBP/USD broke above the 50-period simple moving average and the trendline. A fail breakout above 1.3049 would be seen as a positive sign for bears.
