GBPUSD breaks 1.1290 support ahead of BOE announcements

GBPUSD breaks 1.1290 support ahead of BOE announcements

GBPUSD renews 37-year low, breaking four-month-old support line and 61.8% Fibonacci Expansion (FE) of the GBPUSD pair’s moves between August 17 and September 13, close to 1.1290, as traders await the Bank of England’s (BOE) monetary policy updates. Though the cable pair broke the nearby key support, now resistance around 1.1290, oversold RSI conditions and a likely positive surprise from the “Old Lady”, as the BOE is popularly known, tease the Cable pair buyers. In that case, the 5-DMA and a six-week-old resistance line, respectively around 1.1410 and 1.1560, could challenge the bulls. Following that, a one-month-long horizontal resistance area will precede the 50-DMA to restrict the quote’s further upside around 1.1740 and 1.1845 in that order.

Alternatively, the 78.6% Fibonacci Expansion (FE) level near 1.1160 lures the GBPUSD bears unless it stays below 1.1290. In a case where the Cable pair drops below 1.1160, the odds of witnessing a slump towards the 1.1000 psychological magnet can’t be ruled out.

Overall, GBPUSD seemed to have a little downside room ahead of the anticipated hawkish BOE.
