Forecast for GBP/USD on August 8, 2019


The British pound traded in the range of 70 points yesterday, remaining within the weekly consolidation. Today, this consolidation may be broken up, which follows from the readings of the four-hour chart - the price has come close to the MACD line, and consolidating above it will correspond to the price going out of this range (1.2209).


The market will still have the opportunity to keep the price near the level of 1.2258, corresponding to the resistance of the line of the price channel of the daily scale, but if the rising moment is stronger and the resistance is also broken, the price will increase to 1.2410 - to the MACD line on the daily chart.


A falling scenario can be realized after the price moves below the lower boundary of consolidation at 1.2100. Here, the first target will be the range of 1.2032/55 then 1.1986. Important economic data will be published tomorrow in the UK: GDP for the 2nd quarter is expected to grow at zero, industrial production in June may show a decrease of 0.2%, construction volume may show -0.4% and the trade balance may worsen from -11 , 52 billion pounds to-11.80 billion. We are waiting for data and further developments.
