Exchange Rates 08.06.2021 analysis

The GBP/USD pair traded not much better than the EUR/USD pair on Monday. First, here, too, the upward movement began quite unexpectedly, without working out any important level or line. Secondly, there was no macroeconomic statistics on the pound during the day either. There was, however, news from US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who made it clear that the US government will continue to spend large sums of money to finance certain sectors of the economy, which means an increase in the chances of passing the $6 trillion budget by Congress for fiscal year 2022, which will become a record in the post-war period. And for the US dollar, this means that the money supply will swell even more. Yellen also said that the jump in inflation upward is a temporary phenomenon, making it clear that not only the Fed is not worried about inflation, but also the Treasury. In general, this was moderately negative news for the dollar. It is not excluded that it was precisely to them that traders reacted on Monday, resuming the sale of the dollar. As for trading signals, there were very few of them during the past day. The upward movement began from a place where there was not a single level near which a signal could form. A buy signal was formed only at the very end of the movement, when the pair crossed the Senkou Span B and Kijun-sen lines. Formally, traders had every right to work out this signal, but the price could not continue to move upward and by the middle of the US session or late in the evening, it was possible to close this position manually in a small profit (several points). Nothing more interesting happened during the day. Not in terms of trade, not in terms of events and news.

The British pound continues to trade in the horizontal channel 1.4100-1.4220 on the hourly timeframe and this can clearly be seen. The length of the horizontal channel is already so great that it does not even fully fit into the illustration. For more than three weeks, the pair has been in an absolute flat and cannot leave the side channel, only occasionally making attempts to break through its borders. Thus, yesterday the quotes returned to the upper border of this channel, and today they may fall down again. You need to be ready for this. Both macroeconomics and foundation play a small role here. There were no important statistics yesterday, but the pair did not stand still. And it cannot be otherwise inside the lateral canal. In technical terms, we continue to draw the attention of traders to the most important levels and recommend trading from them: 1.4080, 1.4101, 1.400 and 1.4219. Senkou Span B (1.4169) and Kijun-sen (1.4141) lines can also be sources of signals, but they are weak in the flat. It is recommended to set the Stop Loss level at breakeven when the price passes 20 points in the right direction. The Ichimoku indicator lines can move during the day, which should be taken into account when looking for trading signals. There are no major events or publications scheduled in the UK or the US on Tuesday. Thus, we believe that the flat will continue today, but the volatility may remain quite high. Traders are likely to be looking forward to the end of the week, when several important reports are released in the UK and inflation data for May in the US.

We also recommend that you familiarize yourself with the forecast and trading signals for the EUR/USD pair.

COT report

Exchange Rates 08.06.2021 analysis

The GBP/USD pair increased by 55 points during the last reporting week (May 25-31). However, in general, no one doubts the direction of the current trend – upward. It was all the more surprising to watch the latest Commitment of Traders (COT) report, which showed that over the same time period, professional traders opened 500 buy contracts and 6,500 sell contracts. That is, the net position of the “non-commercial” group decreased by 6,000, which is a decent value for the pound. Thus, the picture is as follows. The pound continues to rise and cannot even really correct. At the same time, the size of the net position of the major players practically does not change. Since the beginning of March, changes in the net position have been insignificant, which is shown by both the first and second indicators. And in any case, these changes do not in any way reflect what is happening in the market itself. Moreover, the pound continues to show growth, simply not commensurate with the bullish sentiment of non-commercial traders. Anyway, any group of traders and all together. Thus, we continue to talk about such a global factor as the injection of trillions of dollars into the American economy, which, from our point of view, is the main reason for the strengthening of the British currency. Look, by the way, at the previous section of the trend, between October 2020 and March 2021. The pound gained 1400 points, while the net positions of commercial and non-commercial groups of traders remained practically unchanged. That is, large players did not increase their purchases at this time. At the same time, the pound showed an increase of 1400 points practically without a single pullback. As they say, the presence of third-party factors is obvious.

Explanations for the chart:
