Technical Analysis


The Bank of England announced on Thursday that it’s going to keep the interest rate steady and continue with its current bond-buying program. Generally, the announcement didn’t exactly infuse much optimism into the audience. As a result, the GBP lost a considerable amount of value against its peers straight as the details were released to the public.

Tactically, GBP/USD is floating above the mid-term support of 1.38, and the BOE’s remarks pressed it further downwards to it. Therefore, it is very likely that the support of 100-EMA (orange) will soon be broken.


Coronavirus and inflationary worries around the world keep steadily pushing the gold price towards the upside target of 1800.
