Will BOE support GBP?
2023-08-03 • Updated
Today, the Bank of England has decided to raise interest rates to combat inflation. In its recent report dated the 3rd of August, 2023, the BOE confirmed that it had raised interest rates to 5.25%, expecting that the inflation rates would drop to 2%. Inflation remains a major concern, at 7.9% in June, four times the 2% target. However, the warnings that the Bank's rapid rate increases could trigger a recession have not moved a muscle, and the Trades Union Congress has called for borrowing costs to remain unchanged.
GBPJPY - D1 Timeframe

GBPAUD - D1 Timeframe
GBPAUD is still in the supply zone, though the initial rejection move has already been completed. This means we can expect the price action to drop further down, possibly till the marked support area is reached.
GBPNZD - D1 Timeframe
GBPNZD slowly created a channel inside the supply zone on the weekly timeframe. This means we should begin to see price glide down to test the trendline support before any possibility of a bullish scenario may present itself.
