GBPUSD #Gold #SP500 This relationship, often referred to as Cable (simply due to original trades being enacted across the transatlantic “cable”), was last reviewed in January (link here). It recently achieved our 1.33 target, even bettering it slightly and closing a session marginally in optimistic territory. Has a trip to Disney in Florida become possible?
Firstly, it’s probably worth considering the chart inset and in particular, the red circled area. This movement, a few sessions ago, represented the market opting to move the pairing above the immediate downtrend, one which had been threatening reversal to 1.2 initially but realistically, it promised parity eventually. Thankfully, the market has rendered this immediate calculation improbable – not impossible. The relationship requires above 1.375 (Light Blue) before we can totally forget about parity.
Before moving on to cheerful hopes for a future against Sterling and the US Dollar, it’s probably best to mention the danger now at 1.20, if achieved. Anything below this level will justify panic, again with a trip to parity possible. Secondary, if parity breaks, is an ultimate bottom of 0.69 pounds to the dollar. Thankfully this danger is receding as it appears the markets are taking action to avoid this trip to hell.
For now, we shall be more interested if the relationship firms up above 1.332 as movement to 1.359 is expected initially. While the visual implication of such a target is to expect some hesitation, our longer term secondary – if the pair closes above 1.359 – is at 1.3974. This will recover Sterling above the Light Blue line, once again attracting tourism to the dubious attractions of Florida. Or (to ride our favourite hobby horse) making skiing in Colorado affordable again!
