The pound keeps falling below 1.5400

Eurozone problems continue to affect the European currency that was traded in the mixed trend against the dollar and fall with a gap. The November money supply increase reports could support the euro more than expected – the M3 aggregate expanded by 3.1% y/y against the forecast by 2.6% y/y after 2.5% y/y in October. The US ISM manufacturing index fell to the level of 55.5 in December. The pair euro/dollar continues falling. The pair broke through another low at the level of 1.2070-1.2090 and fell below the level of 1.2000-1.2020.

The support levels are 1.1930-1.1950, and the resistance levels are 1.2000-1.2020.

MACD is in a negative territory.

Trading recommendations

We expect the short-term downward movement in the descending corridor near 1.2020-1.1950, it is likely a turn into a correction here. The level of 1.1930-1.1950 test allows us expect a rebound upwards.

The pound fell with a gap on Friday. Earlier the British pound rose against the dollar. Obviously, interest in pound was caused by technical factors that with a strong support presence stimulated investors to take profit.

The bulls’ attempts were unsuccessful that led to the resumed decline, the support breakthrough near 1.5395-1.5415 and the pair decrease below the level of 1.5360-1.5380.
