GBP/USD October-December 2016 Forecast: ranging below Ichimoku cloud near key support level for the bearish trend to be resumed

W1 price is located below Ichimoku cloud in the bearish area of the chart. The price is on ranging since end of June this year within the narrow support resistance levels: 1.3444 resistance for the bear market rally to be started and 1.2794 support level for the bearish trend to be resumed. Ascending triangle pattern was formed by the price to be crossed to above for the local rally to be started, but the price is on testing with 1.2914 support level to below for 1.2794 bearish target to re-enter for the bearish trend to be continuing.

Chinkou Span line is below the price indicating the ranging condition, Tenkan-sen line is below Kijun-sen line for the bearish trend to be resumed, and Absolute Strength indicator is estimating the trend to be ranging bearish in the near future for example.


  • If the price breaks 1.3444 resistance level on close weekly bar to above so the local uptrend as a bear market rally will be started with 1.3643 possible target.
  • If weekly price breaks 1.2794 support level on close bar to below so the bearish trend will be resumed.
  • If not so the price will be on bearish ranging within the levels.

Fundamental Q4'16 Forecasts for GBP/USD (based on the article)


GBP/USD - "The first set of crucial technical levels carved out through the previous quarter are 1.3500 resistance and 1.2800 support. These boundaries were set early and were not retested through the subsequent months – in other words the market was contracting. Dwindling consolidation was the primary feature of the Dollar-based majors and for the broader financial markets through the inordinately quiet third quarter. In turn, GBP/USD will likely succumb to changing winds that force major breakouts and trend development. A break below 1.2800 would likely be met with chop and struggle for progress. In contrast, an earnest break above 1.3500 will more readily find momentum towards 1.4750 and perhaps as high as the 1.5000 pre-Brexit spike."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for GBP/USD (based on the article)


GBP/USD - "Signs of stronger U.K. inflation accompanied by a pickup in retail spending by may curb the bearish sentiment surrounding the sterling as BoE officials continue to drop their dovish tone and see a greater risk of above-target price growth. Even though BoE Governor Mark Carney argues the central bank is willing to tolerate ‘some inflation overshoot,’ it seems as though the marked depreciation in the British Pound is becoming a growing concern within the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) as Deputy Governor Jon Cunliffe warns the next quarterly inflation due out on November 3 will reflect the sharp decline in the exchange rate. As a result, the central bank may have little choice but to stay on the sidelines throughout the remainder of the year in an effort to combat the risk for stagflation. A series of positive U.K. data prints may fuel a near-term recovery in the British Pound as market participants push out bets for the next BoE rate-cut, but the broader outlook for GBP/USD remains tilted to the downside as the growing threat of a ‘hard Brexit’ undermines the better-than-expected developments coming out of the real economy."

Trading News Events: U.K. Consumer Price Index (CPI) (adapted from the article)

  • "A material pickup in both the headline and core U.K. Consumer Price Index (CPI) may sap the bearish sentiment surrounding the British Pound and spark a larger recovery in GBP/USD especially as a growing number of Bank of England (BoE) officials see a greater threat of overshooting the 2% target for inflation."
  • "Even though the BoE argues ‘a majority of members expect to support a further cut in Bank Rate to its effective lower bound,’ heightening price pressures may keep the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) on the sidelines throughout the remainder of the yearas Deputy Governor Jon Cunliffe warns the next quarterly inflation due out on November 3 will reflect the sharp decline in the exchange rate. In turn, GBP/USD may face a more meaningful correction as the BoE looks poised to endorse a wait-and-see approach ahead of 2017, but the broader outlook for the sterling remains tilted to the downside as the risk of a ‘hard Brexit’ clouds the outlook for growth and inflation."


Bullish GBP Trade: Headline & Core CPI Pick Up in September

  • "Need green, five-minute candle following the print to consider a long GBP/USD trade."
  • "If market reaction favors long sterling, buy GBP/USD with two separate position."
  • "Set stop at the near-by swing low/reasonable distance from entry; look for at least 1:1 risk-to-reward."
  • "Move stop to entry on remaining position once initial target is hit, set reasonable limit."
Bearish GBP Trade: U.K. Inflation Report Falls Short of Market Forecast
  • "Need red, five-minute candle to favor a short GBP/USD trade."
  • "Implement same setup as the bullish British Pound trade, just in reverse."


Daily price is located below 200-day SMA (200 SMA) and 100-day SMA (100 SMA) for the primary bearish market condition with the ranging within the narrow support/resistance levels.

  • If D1 price breaks 1.2478 resistance level to above on close daily bar so the local uptrend as the bear market rally will be started.
  • If price breaks 1.1940 support to below on close daily bar so the primary bearish trend will be resumed.
  • If not so the price will be on bearish ranging within the levels.

GBP/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: U.K. Jobless Claims and 29 pips price movement

2016-10-19 08:30 GMT | [GBP - Claimant Count Change]

if actual < forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for GBP in our case)

[GBP - Claimant Count Change] = Change in the number of people claiming unemployment-related benefits during the previous month.

==========

From The Telegraph article: FTSE 100 falters and pound rises above $1.23 as UK unemployment rate holds steady at 4.9pc despite Brexit vote

  • "The three-month average level of employment rose by a solid 106K, or 0.3pc, between May and August, but 66K of these new positions are part-time roles. Total hours worked held steady between May and August, indicating employees’ demand for labour has stagnated. Meanwhile, employment growth no longer is keeping pace with the expanding size of the workforce; the three-month average level of unemployment edged up by 10K between May and August."
  • "This increase was not large enough to push the unemployment rate up from 4.9pc, but the steady upward trend in the claimant count, which rose 0.7K month-to-month in September after an upward-revised increase of 7.1K in August, suggests the main rate will edge up over the coming months. In addition, the stagnation of the number of job vacancies and the deterioration in surveys of employment intentions point to slower employment growth ahead."
