      GBP/USD BACKS AWAY FROM RESISTANCE

      

      The rejection by GBP/USD of the 1.40 psychological resistance level on Thursday and Friday last week may have marked a turning point for the pair and it would be no surprise if it eased further ahead of this coming Thursday‘s meeting of the Bank of England’s rate-setting monetary policy committee.

      However, as the chart above shows, previous trendline resistance may now act as support, potentially limiting any losses ahead of the MPC meeting, where policymakers will likely repeat that they are not tightening policy just yet.

      In the meantime, a UK spat with France, which was left out when the UK loosened entry requirements for visitors from most of Europe, could harm sentiment. On the other hand, in an effort to curb the UK‘s“pingdemic” of contact tracing notifications, the Government has restricted the parameters of the National Health Service’s Covid-19 phone app – a potential positive for the UK economy and therefore the Pound.
