- Friday’s trading session pulled the British pound against the USD down towards the 1.2770 level on H4. Today GBP/USD is awaiting the release of British GDP growth rate and balance of trade, which may potentially affect the pair. If the release supports the British pound, the cable will break the first resistance at 1.2802. After that, bulls will target the next level at 1.2831. The weak release may help bears to retest Friday’s lows at 1.2770. In case of a breakout, bears will target the 1.2738 level.
- The price of gold inched higher on the mixed news about US-China trade talks. The conflicting opinions came from the White House trade advisor Peter Navarro and US President Donald Trump. While Mr. Navarro said that the cancellation of tariffs is not in the phase one trade agreement, the president shared his opinion that talks were “moving along nicely”. The price of the yellow metal has risen higher. On H4, the next resistance will be placed at $1,471. If the risk sentiment is on, XAU/USD will fall below the $1,462 level towards the possible retest of the $1,457 level.
- As the risk sentiment faded, USD/JPY fell down, too. The pair has slid below the 109 level with bears focusing on the support at 108.81. The upside momentum is limited by the 109.02 level. If this level is broken, the next resistance will lie at 109.22.

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
Every week we expect many interesting events that can shake the market.
