Upcoming Economic Events

The market anticipates the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Report and Summary due today at 4:00 PM. With the Official Bank Rate expected to hold steady at 5.25%, investor focus will be on the MPC’s vote split for clues on future rate directions, previously recorded at 0-2-7 from a more dovish 0-0-9.

In today’s trading session, the pivot point has been determined to be at $1.25052, which plays a crucial role in setting the directional bias. Regarding resistance levels, the immediate hurdle for prices can be found at $1.25320. Following that, a significant barrier awaits at $1.25650, with further resistance looming at $1.27080, which denotes the upper limit of the current trading range.

On the flip side, the support structure begins at $1.24666 for immediate cushioning. Should prices retreat further, additional support lies at $1.23821, and even deeper support is anchored at $1.23118, aligning closely with the lower trend line of the ascending trading channel.
