General overview

The government bonds yield significantly reduced against the US Treasuries and the Germany bonds due to the capital outflow from the British assets. This factor, in its turn, left a negative impact on the Cable. Only by the end of the trades the Sterling slightly strengthened.

The price is finding the first support at 1.4400, the next one is at 1.4320. The price is finding the first resistance at 1.4480, the next one is at 1.4560.

There is a confirmed and a weak buy signal. The price is above the Ichimoku Cloud and it is above the Chinkou Span. The Tenkan-sen shows a downward movement and the Kijun-sen shows a horizontal movement forming a “Dead Cross”. The upward movement will be until the price is above the Cloud.

The MACD indicator is in a neutral territory. The price is growing.

Trading recommendations

We may expect the consolidation at the current levels. The downward bounce potential target is 1.4400. If the price grows it will break above 1.4480.
