3.7/5 of 3 ratings

The price of the GBP/USD pair has been going down significantly since the beginning of August. Not only because of the affairs connected to Brexit but because of the notably smaller manufacturing and industrial production in the UK released today.

Both industries dominate a big part of total GDP, therefore low production rates (that lead to moderate reading) can be seen as bearish. That is why, even though the market is currently ignoring the data we are expecting heavy sellers into the 1.3020 area (which is also our target price).

The pair has broken through yesterday’s key level in the 1.3050-70 area and is currently trading at 1.2965 which is the lowest price for quite some time. The 1.3020 level which was support yesterday has become key resistance for today and this is where we will be buying daily puts for the daily expiration at 20:00 GMT.
