Technical Analysis


А member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the Bank of England Silvana Tenreyro announced yesterday that the country will maintain low rates for a long time. This inevitably forces us to continue assessing the possibility of introducing a negative key rate. In addition, Tenreyro stated that there was a positive experience on this issue.

The chart of the currency pair against the background of the official’s statements began to actively decline. Technical analysis shows this is due to the presence of an upward resistance level. The developing trend may continue to 1.30000 and below.


The price of the precious metal marked a strong support level at 1850.


The asset recovered sharply after the breakdown of the support level of 1.07300, which indicates the false nature of the breakdown. Now the pair’s chart is fixed above the downtrend resistance level and may continue the bullish trend.
