GBPUSD Traders Be Aware

The GBPUSD pair has been making waves lately, breaking through multiple support levels and keeping traders on their toes. What’s driving this turbulence? Let’s dive into the recent developments and see what lies ahead for the pound-dollar exchange rate.

One significant factor influencing the GBPUSD movement is the shifting expectations surrounding the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy. Initially, market participants were anticipating a rate cut from the Fed, but these expectations have been pushed back beyond the upcoming June meeting. The reason? Higher inflation readings, which have prompted a reassessment of the timing of any potential rate adjustments.

But amidst this uncertainty, could the GBPUSD price stage a rebound towards the 1.2550 handle? 

Examining the recent Consumer Price Index (CPI) data from the UK provides some insights. The CPI print for March revealed a steady decline in inflation, dropping to 3.2% from the previous 3.4%. This downward trend in inflation could be precisely what the Bank of England (BoE) is eyeing when considering rate cuts. However, this outlook might be considered bearish for the GBP in the mid to long term.

On the flip side, there’s a seasonal pattern to consider. Historically, the GBP has shown a strong bullish tendency from now until the end of April, boasting a 70% success rate. This seasonal factor adds another layer of complexity to the GBPUSD outlook, complicating predictions and trading strategies.

As for the current price action, the GBPUSD pair has found support around the 1.2400 mark. Observing today’s market movements, it’s evident that prices have been hovering around this level. However, breaking above the recent highs of 1.2475 could potentially trigger buying pressure, propelling the pair towards the target lows of 1.2550.
