GBP/USD Analysis: Anticipates BoE decision


As it was expected, a mismatch with experts’ forecasts on the UK Average Hourly Earnings forced the pair to make a premature rebound and retreat towards the closest combined support level formed by the 100-hour SMA and the monthly R1 at 1.3208. However, over the last ten hours the exchange rate did not make any significant moves. The reason behind such low volatility is anticipation of announcement of the Official Bank Rate by the Bank of England. Most probably, this event will lead to quite sharp depreciation of the Pound. In the first hour the downfall might be stopped by a combination of the 200-hour SMA and the weekly PP at 1.3110. However, then the pair is likely to slip even further, tending to reach the weekly S1 and the monthly PP near 1.2990.
