GBP/USD: general analysis

Current trend 

Marco-economic indicators in the UK continue to grow, supporting the Pound rate. National statistics shows that trade deficit fell to 9.7 billion pounds. One of the reasons of improvement in the index is the growth of output in manufacturing industry, which has reached the level of 0.4%. Indices of industrial sector are high as well: production volumes increased to the level of 3.2% on annual basis.

However, the risks for all currencies, including the Pound are high, as next week the US Fed can adopt the decision to reduce quantitative easing programs. Sudden movement at Forex market is not expected until 17 December.

Trading tips 

It is recommended to open short positions below support level of 1.6305 with stop-loss near 1.6335 and a target of 1.6170.
