GBP/USD: 1.5560 key near term resistance - UOB

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Analysts at UOB Group have a neutral outlook for GBP/USD on a 1-3 week time frame.

Key Quotes:

"Unconvinced that the current movement is the start of a sustained rally. While the outlook for GBP has certainly improved with the unexpected break above 1.5510, we are unconvinced that the current movement is the start of a sustained rally.

From here, only a break above 1.5560 would indicate further GBP strength to 1.5650 followed by the 1.5820 peak seen in late August. That said, the immediate risk is on the upside and only a move back below 1.5450 would indicate that upward pressure has eased."

USD declines ahead of FOMC

The US dollar weakened minutes before the Fed’s decision on rates. Traders are waiting the key meeting that could be historic if the central bank raises the interest rate: it would be the first time since 2006. The decision, the FOMC statement and Yellen’s press conference are likely to trigger volatility across financial markets.
