Chart of The Day: GBP/USD D1 Chart

Cable has slowed after GBP data showed inflation slowing some what. It took aim at the 1.6800 round number, was turned back and has now fallen through W1 support (blue line) & 1.6700. If we see some positive USD data in the next day or so, we could see this drop accelerate.

AUD/USD D1 Chart

Aussie is starting to once again feel the ‘slowing’ of the Chinese economy. If that’s what’s happening. There’s CNY Flash Mfg PMI out late tomorrow which could have a heavy influence on the direction of this pair. In the mean time Aussie, like other USD paired currencies, could feel additional pressure if USD data shows improvement.
