GBP/USD to remain under 1.44

The Sterling refuses to edge lower and appears to be headed towards the resistance line above 1.49. However, the Cable is first required to pierce through the supply area at 1.4446, represented by the monthly R1, which limited the pair's volatility on Friday. The 1.44 psychological level is also playing a part in the pair's ability to appreciate, thus, due to no impetus present to push the Pound higher today. As a result, a corrective decline is likely to take place, but the bearish momentum could fail to exceed the 1.4345 mark, as the 55-day SMA and the weekly PP are providing immediate support there.

Gold reaches new multi-month peaks

A broad buoyant sentiment pushed the precious metal to fresh 13-month highs by Friday morning. Yesterday the bullion's selloff was successfully limited by the February uptrend below 1,240, and later moderately hawkish remarks by the ECB President Draghi resulted in a surge above 1,270. For now we see the weekly R1 as the first reliable resistance for the remaining 24 hours of this week's trading, with monthly R1 at 1,295 acting as the second supply level. As daily and weekly technical indicators are mostly bullish, we assume that gradual price increases will stay in place.

The ECB and the ‘kitchen sink’ approach

The European Central Bank (ECB) have very much taken the ‘kitchen sink’ approach, surprising market expectations in a variety of ways, not least an expansion of the asset purchase programme to include corporate bonds and opening the door to paying banks to borrow via the longer‑term refinancing operations (LTROs). They hope that the measures announced will ease financial conditions and stimulate new credit creation, leading to stronger growth and a return of inflation to target.
