Risk-off mode minimizes positive impact from freedom day
Cable remains offered on Tuesday hit new 4 ½ month low in extension of Monday’s 0.73% fall, driven by risk aversion on growing concerns on global and local spread of Covid-19 Delta variant.
Investors continue to sell pound, showing very cautious reaction on freedom day – removal of most English coronavirus restrictions.
Monday’s close below 200DMA (1.36940 and extension below Apr-May higher base at 1.3670 and Fibo 38.2% of 1.2675/1.4249 at 1.3647, were strong bearish signals which require confirmation on eventual close below these levels to signal reversal and confirm a double-top (1.4238/49, Feb/May tops).
Oversold daily techs suggest bears may pause after three-day 1.3% drop and position for fresh push lower.
Broken 200DMA should ideally cap upticks and keep bears intact.
