Pound technical review
Published on 03.11.2017 14:54

The British pound once again failed to break through a key resistance level in yesterday’s trading session after being sharply sold off over expectations that the rate hike delivered by the Bank of England yesterday may be the only one.

For weeks now the market has been speculating just how many times the BOE would raise rates with many predicting around 3 over the next year so investors were caught completely off guard.

The news has pushed the British currency down to a key support level and we are likely to see it travel down to the next resistance level around $1.2920.

A good reason for this is the release of the non-farm payrolls figure from the US which just came in at 266k and guarantees a rate hike from the US Federal Reserve next month
