Technical analysis : GBP/USD approaches 1.33

by Dukascopy

The British Pound had a very challenging trading session yesterday. Due to comments made by the EU Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier about a "deadlock" in Brexit negotiations the Sterling lost 116 basis points against the Greenback just in couple of hours. Despite a release of better than expected US Core PPI data, traders managed to return the pair to the pre-fall 1.3250 level. 

In the first half of this trading session the currency rate is expected to test a resistance near the 1.3290 mark. However, whether the cable will manage to soar and bypass the 1.3300 level or fall back to the 200-hour SMA near 1.3192 will depend on release of data about the US CPI and retail sales, which, in turn, will have major implications on decision about the need of another interest rate hike this year.
