GBP/USD fails to recover 1.4200, holds onto important daily gains

 


The GBP/USD rose further during the American session and peaked at 1.4200. Like Thursday, it was unable to break the 1.4200 area and pulled back. The pound recovered sharply after falling before the NFP to 1.4082, the lowest level in almost three weeks. From the lows it bounced to the upside, boosted by the decline of the US dollar after the US employment report that came in below expectations.

ANALYSIS

 


Soft NFP to take some of the wind out of the USD's sails – TDS

 


“The data will likely reinforce the view of most Fed officials that progress has not been ‘substantial’ enough for them to start signalling tapering. 

 


“The USD is likely to unwind a good portion — if not all — of its recent gains against the G10 complex. The official report has its bright spots, but we think the FX market will struggle to overlook the headline shortfall.”

 


“We note that EUR/USD has pushed back above the 1.2133 threshold. A weekly close above that mark should help cement expectations of a return to familiar territory until fresh catalysts emerge. On that front, we think investor attention will soon pivot to next week's ECB meeting as the next major item on the market's agenda.”
