Short-term trading idea Forex GBP/USD – bull speculation: rebound from the TR2 trend line


Trading opportunities on the currency pair: Since the 20th of September, the British pound has shed around 600 pips against the US dollar. The drop started with a pin bar model. From looking at the cycles, I’m expecting the rate to drop to the TR2 trend line or the range from 1.3000 to 1.3016, followed by a recovery to 1.3350 – 1.3490. We should keep the 21st of October and 29th of November in mind for possible reversal dates. From the trend line, I’ll start trying to trade with the trend with targets of 1.3350 and 1.1390. After the 28th of November, I’m expecting a downwards reversal and a breakout of the TR2 trend line.

The US economy grew at an annual rate of 3.1% in the second quarter of 2017, according to figures published yesterday at 15:30 (GMT+3). Although this is historical data and was already factored into the price of the US dollar, it does increase the likelihood of the US seeing 2.0% real GDP growth in 2017. We can take from this that the US dollar could further strengthen its position against the majors by the end of the year.

The Bank of Canada has indicated that it needs a more flexible, data-dependent monetary policy in the times to come, according to remarks yesterday from the bank’s head; Steven Poloz. Poloz stressed that they wouldn’t be thinking about interest rates mechanically, but rather that their outlook will depend on a number of statistical economic factors such as inflation, wage growth, business investment, consumer spending and debt, and so on. The Bank of Canada has hiked interest rates twice this year; once on the 12th of July when rates went up from 0.50% to 0.75%, and again on the 6th of September when they went up to 1.00%.

Markets take a wait-and-see attitude with the Fed meeting looming
