GBP Held Above 1.22 Handle, Awaiting CPI Data

GBP/USD rose 97 pips in early morning trading sessions. The sterling received a push yesterday after disappointing manufacturing index -6.8 and industrial production 0.1% not meeting expectations 0.3%. The US dollar Index also tumbled -0.15% in in Asian sessions 97.76%.

As a result, the US dollar lost it’s pace, and the British pound gained some profits as Prime Minister Theresa May is prepared to listen to top ministers opinion for leaving EU. GBP/USD clocked a high 1.2273, currently trading at 1.2230, above daily Pp, but leaving the EU single market will be harsh on sterling, thus remaining under pressure. GBP/USD awaits today British Core CPI which will set the on-going trend knowing that good CPI data will encourage the BOE to take more actions.

Trend: bearish

Key levels to watch: Daily Pp 1.2174

First Resistance : R1 1.2305, R2 1.2368, R3 1.2475, R4 1.2544

First Support: S1 1.2147, S2 1.2092, S3 1.2034, S4 1.1982
