Forex Flash: GBP/USD in corrective rebound before further losses - Commerzbank

Commerzbank analysts are betting on a rebound since the GBP/USD has met its initial target of 1.4853, the 61.8% retracement of the 2009 move: “We note the divergence of the RSI, the TD perfection set up on the daily and the weekly – suggest that the move lower is done for now and we are likely to see a corrective rebound”, wrote analyst Karen Jones, pointing to a rally to 1.5100 and even 1.5250 ahead of failure.

“We do not believe that the down move is over and longer term we look for losses to 1.4259/29, the 2010 low”, she added, pointing to initial resistance at 1.4992 (very accelerated downtrend) ahead of 1.5236 (23.6% retracement), and an offered market below 1.5398.

While prices have not been able to overtake the 1600 barrier/key resistance in recent days, gold has succeeded in being confined to a narrow consolidation, stabilizing a month-long free-fall. Indeed, in the aftermath of last week’s Italian downgrade by Fitch, along with other European blemishes surfacing on the continent, gold could be primed for a move higher if sentiment wanes. At the time of writing, the price of gold has settled at USD $1590.54 per oz.
