GBP FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

The British pound remains under pressure today against both the U.S. dollar and euro respectively with the central bank differential weighing on GBP. Both the ECB and Federal Reserve have reiterated their fight against inflation with the ECB slightly more hawkish, while the Bank of England (BoE) is expected to end their monetary tightening before the rest.

The economic calendar today is focused on U.S. and EZ data with building permits set to push lower to its lowest level for 2022 and may provide cable with some upside momentum. With regards to the eurozone, consumer confidence is forecasted at improving from the November read leaving the door open for additional euro strength should the actual data come in line or exceed expectations.

GBP/USD DAILY CHART

Chart prepared by Warren Venketas, IG

The daily cable chart above which has recently broken below the rising wedge chart pattern (black) now finds itself testing the key 200-day SMA (blue) support zone. A confirmed break below this are of confluence could expose the 1.2000 psychological handle once more. From a momentum point of view, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has come off overbought levels and approaches the RSI midpoint leaving room for additional downside should the oscillator move into the bearish area (below 50).
