British Pound Tries To Gain Ground At The Start Of The Week
GBP/USD is currently trying to settle above the resistance at 1.4200 while the U.S. dollar is mostly flat against a broad basket of currencies.
The U.S. Dollar Index has recently made another attempt to settle below the support at the 90 level but failed to develop sufficient downside momentum. If the U.S. Dollar Index manages to settle below this level, it will head towards the support at 89.75 which will be bullish for GBP/USD.
There are no important economic reports scheduled to be released today in the U.S. and UK so foreign exchange market traders will focus on general market sentiment.
Trading may be calm as U.S. markets are closed in observance of Memorial Day, but the test of the 1.4200 level may draw traders’ attention.
The economic calendar will be more active in the second part of the week as traders will have a chance to take a look at key employment reports from the U.S., including ADP Employment Change, Initial Jobless Claims, Non Farm Payrolls and Unemployment Rate.
