GBPUSD – Will 1.3400 Hold?

Today almost all the BoE members were cautious in their Parliamentary testimony. They all suggested that monetary policy will move towards normalization sooner rather than later. This indicates that the much expected BoE rate hikes will simply be postponed to end of summer rather than 2019.

UK data is the most important economic report in G-7 calendar this week and tomorrow’s UK CPI data, as well as Thursday’s Retail Sales, will go a long way to determining if cable can move through 1.3500 and stage a sustained rally.

In the meantime, the pair continues to hold around the 1.3400 having failed in its breakout of 1.3500. If the numbers miss their mark, the pair could be on its way towards 1.3300 by week’s end.
