UK Market Look Ahead – Is Sterling Oversold? | Webinar

DailyFX has a vast amount of updated resources to help traders make more informed decisions. These include a fully updated Economic Calendar, Educational and Trading Guides and the constantly updated IG Client Sentiment Indicator.

Market traders will be watching closely the latest set of UK jobs and wages numbers on Tuesday for any further signs that UK employment remains robust. Last week the Bank of England kept monetary policy unchanged and said that any future interest rate hike will be predicated on stronger UK data. Higher employment and wages could signal a future domestic inflationary pick-up that the BoE may need to temper in coming months. In the meantime, the FTSE 100 continues its push back towards its record high as sentiment remains positive in the equity space.

GBPUSD is making a tentative comeback from its recent low, aided in part by a slightly weaker US dollar. With the 200-day moving average just above the pair, the upside for the British Pound may be limited although the market currently remains just above the oversold territory.
